Your Congratulations

"I wouldn’t have compromised so much
so much of myself for fear of
having you hating me
I would’ve sung so loudly
it would’ve cracked myself!
I became self-conscious
of anything exuberant
I wouldn’t have sold myself short
I wouldn’t have kept my eyes
glued to the ground
if I had’ve known my invisibility
would not make a difference
I would’ve run around screaming proudly
at the top of my voice
I wouldn’t have said it was in fact luck
i’m talking idealism here
I would not have been so self deprecating
I wouldn’t have cowered
for fear of having my eyes scratched out!
I wouldn’t have cut my comfort off
I wouldn’t have feigned needlessness
I would not have discredited
every one of their compliments
it was your approval I wanted
your congratulations

You Never Cry Like A Lover

"You never cry like a lover should
Sigh when it feels real good
Or see the sky through the stone and wood
You never cry like a lover

I thought I saw somebody I loved
Sleeping deep inside you
If I could catch you in an unguarded moment
I’d stay right here beside you

You never smile at me late at night
Laugh out loud when we get it right
You can’t get loose if there’s too much light
You never smile like a lover

I can’t live with you baby

You Know What I Mean

"Just as I thought I’d made it
You walk back into my life
Just like you never left
Just as I learned to be lonely
You call up to tell me
You’re not sure if you’re ready
Oh but ready or not
You’ll take what you’ve got
And leave
Oh leave me alone
With my heart
I’m putting the pieces back
Together again
Just leave
Oh leave me alone
With my dreams
I can do without you
You know what I mean

I wish I could write a lovesong
To show you the way I feel
Seems you don’t like to listen
Oh but like it or not
You’ll take what you’ve got
And leave
Oh leave me alone
With my heart
It’s broken in two and I’m not
I’m not thinking too straight
Just leave
Oh leave me alone
With my dreams
You’ve taken everything else
You know what I mean

You Belong In Rock ‘N Roll

"Just the twinkling lights of heaven
Two reflections on the sparkling water
Hand in hand in love with love uh-huh

I love the cheap things that you say-a-say

You belong in rock ‘n roll
You belong in rock ‘n roll
You belong in rock ‘n roll
Well so do I
I love how she moves me
It makes me feel alright
