Maladies

Allergies to dust and grain

Still these allergies remain
My hand can't touch a guitar string
My fingers just burn and ache
My had intercedes with my bodily needs
And my body won't give it a break
My heart can stand a disaster
My heart can take a disgrace
But my heart is allergic
To the women I love
And it's changing the shape of my face

Allergies
Allergies
Something's living on my skin
Doctor please
Doctor please
Open up it's me again

I go to a famous physician
I sleep in the local hotel
From what I can see of the people like me
We get better
But we never get well
So I ask myself this question
It's a question I often repeat
Where do allergies go
When it's after a show
And they want to get something to eat?

Allergies
Allergies
Something's living on my skin
Doctor please
Doctor please
Open up it's me again

Still these allergies remain
