I'd go back if I could
Take you down and bury you in the woods
Steal your past and erase it if I could
Don't think I wouldn't, I would

For how dare you love anyone but me
How could you love anyone but me

Like a captive I would keep you chained
Keep every moment in every single day
And every person who's ever meant a thing to you
I'd erase them that's what I would do

For how dare you love anyone but me
How could you love anyone but me

And this madness, what am I thinking of?
So destructive for my love
I'm a coward and I'm trying not scream
"Oh you traitor what have you done to me"

How dare you love anyone but me
How could you love anyone but me

And I've seen you, laughing in the light
I see it over and over every night
And it's torture to think of you with her instead
And it hurts no less for being only in my head

How dare you love anyone but me
How could you love anyone but me

......Yes, she has a beautiful voice. Yes, it's wonderfully played. But this song is such a totally honest and riveting expression of bare naked jealousy and speaks so directly (as sometimes only folk music can) that I knew as soon as I heard it that it would be my favorite tune in the set.
'Nuff said.
