Waking Song

Don’t pretend you’re protecting me
From the bitter disappointment that
Comes from risking anything
I used to think you had
My best interests at heart but
Everything you’re saying
Is just your way of complaining

But now and then
It seeps under my skin
And tells me to give in
They start again, the cycles of the psyche
Mechanics of the mind
And if you don’t mind

You’ve tried my patience, dear
And this time I say
No
I opened up my eyes to find
My waking song

I’m sure you think you’re perfecting me
With your candid observations
And your uninformed opinions
Accepting you would be rejecting freedom
Can you sense my trepidation
You don’t mask your irritation

I needed a friend
Somebody I could trust
To pull me when I’m pushed
I’ll start again
I need to get this right
And if it keeps me up all night
I really don’t mind

[Chorus]

Don’t pretend you’re protecting me
From the bitter disappointment that
Comes from risking anything…
