Secret Language

I don’t speak your secret language,
I can’t read your bloody mind,
I don’t connect on any level,
Don’t worship me because I’m kind.

I don’t want a bloody lover,
I don’t need a ‘special friend’,
I can’t be your bloody mother,
I only want to be your friend.

Everytime I’m feeling better,
Everytime I start to try,
Everytime I make an effort,
It really makes me want to cry.

Just because my eyes are shining,
Just because I wash my hair,
Just because I wear some make-up,
Don’t start thinking I really care.

Just because I’m feeling chatty,
Just because I say ‘well done’,
Just because I don’t reject you,
Don’t start thinking that I’m the one.

I don’t know, what it is, I do,
I don’t know, what it is, I say,
I don’t know, whether it is normal,
I know, it’s not a game, I play.

If anybody knows the answer,
If anyone can ease my brow,
When I choose to take a lover,
Then that person, they will know.

Artist's Description

A reaction to being projected at,
I don’t feel what you feel,
I often don’t feel anything.
A dedication to all the exlovers,
exhusbands, stepdaughters
potential lovers and friends
please forgive me for being only human.
