Artist's Description

Sad Lisa
By Singer and song writer, Cat Stevens, played a pivotal role in my life. I often imagined myself as Lisa. The one who hides in the dark. I know now that it was all part of growing up. Part of the discovery of my true self. I had deeper thoughts than most of my friends and I couldn’t find a way to express those thoughts to them and most certainly not to my mom or family. But Lisa was always there, I could hide in my room and listen to the song over and over and image what it would be like to be Lisa. As this image grew into a ghostly room, with a woman huddled on the floor, I knew it would be about growing pains. Finding our way out of the dark. You will find the lyrics and the link to Sad Lisa Below.

Sad Lisa

She hangs her head and cries in my shirt,
she must be hurt very badly,
Tell me what’s making you sadly.
Open your door, don’t hide in the dark,
you’re lost in the dark, you can trust me,
‘cause you know that’s how it must be,

Lisa Lisa, sad Lisa Lisa.
Her eyes like windows,
tricklin’ rain upon her pain, getting deeper
though my love wants to relieve her.
She walks alone from wall to wall, lost in a hall,
she can’t hear me, though I know she likes to be near me,

Lisa Lisa, sad Lisa Lisa.
She sits in a corner by the door.
There must be more I can tell her.
If she really wants me to help her,
I’ll do what I can to show her the way,
and maybe one day I will free her,
’though I know no one can see her.

Lisa Lisa, sad Lisa,
Lisa Lisa, sad Lisa Lisa.
