The Song-Writer’s Conundrum

11 Sep

what’s highly personal to me

doesn’t mean the same thing to you

the song is released *

it can be misconstrued

 

bridge:

twisted up ~ contorted

you took my words

and mis-reported

 

Chorus:

the song-writer’s conundrum:

show the world my most inner thoughts

people will take it as they want

now I feel so dumb

:  To share my lines or just stay mum?

 

I can be mean

it happens–that’s fine

but this incident? *

was just not one of those times

 

bridge:

twisted up ~ contorted

you took my words

and mis-reported

 

as the sentiment turned

things got out of my control

the tone turned hateful

I didn’t wanna go–down that rabbit hole!

 

bridge:

twisted up ~ contorted

you took my words

and mis-reported

 

Chorus:

the song-writer’s conundrum:

show the world my most inner thoughts

people will take it as they want

now I feel so dumb

:  To share my lines or just stay mum?

 

I didn’t stop it–I could have tried

just sat there, frozen *

it made me feel ugly inside

like my own words had lied

 

bridge:

twisted up ~ contorted

you took my words

and mis-reported

 

chorus (abridged):

now I feel so dumb

:  To share my lines or just stay mum?

 

bridge:

twisted up ~ contorted

you took my words

and mis-reported
