​In The Name Of Us, Honey

This song is by Shannon McNally and appears on the album Geronimo (2005).

Well, hi, hello
It's good to meet you
Though I am sure
That we've met before

I can't place your name
And your face is unfamiliar
But somethin' in your handshake or smile is similar
To that of my true companion

So don't tell my you're sorry
Don't tell me you tried
Don't confess to me your sins
Or reveal to me your lies

You never could hide nothin'
Though often you tried
I saw you comin'
When I saw you smile

And I already forgive you
For the crimes you will commit
In the name of love, in the name of money
In the name of song
In the name of you honey

And the big bad wolf
Is in the back seat
When you look at him
He's surprisingly slim and neat

He'll tell you, how he ate grandma
Why, he wears her hat
How the exit works
And where it's at

So if you're gonna go
You better go now
'Cause if you're still here
When I turn around

I'm gonna take you
Take you down to my senses
Where I promise
To render you defenseless

So please forgive me
For the crimes I will commit
In the name of love, in the name of money
In the name of song
In the name of thee, honey

Excuse me for thinkin'
Wide and freely
Though I tell you all
Still, you're left wonderin'

About the thought, the mystery
Behind the eye but what should I say?
What should I do? You're not lookin' for me
And I'm not lookin' for you

We must forgive us
Crimes we will commit
In the name of love, in the name of money
In the name of song
In the name of us, honey
