dear mr president

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

(I know this song is about George W Bush, but it’s impossible not to think/ask the same things these days.)

Dear Mr. President,
Come take a walk with me.
Let’s pretend we’re just two people and
You’re not better than me.
I’d like to ask you some questions if we can speak honestly

What do you feel when you see all the homeless on the street?
Who do you pray for at night before you go to sleep?
What do you feel when you look in the mirror?
Are you proud?

How do you sleep while the rest of us cry?
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Can you even look me in the eye
And tell me why?

Dear Mr. President,
Were you a lonely boy?
Are you a lonely boy?
Are you a lonely boy?
How can you say
‘No child is left behind’?
We’re not dumb, and we’re not blind
They’re all sitting in your cells
While you pave the road to hell

What kind of father would take his own daughter’s rights away?
And what kind of father might hate his own daughter if she were gay?
I can only imagine what the First Lady has to say
You’ve come a long way from whiskey and cocaine

How do you sleep while the rest of us cry?
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Can you even look me in the eye?

Let me tell you ’bout hard work:
Minimum wage with a baby on the way
Let me tell you ’bout hard work:
Rebuilding your house after the bombs took them away
Let me tell you ’bout hard work:
Building a bed out of a cardboard box
Let me tell you ’bout hard work, hard work, hard work
You don’t know nothing ’bout hard work, hard work, hard work
Ooh

How do you sleep at night?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Dear Mr. President,
You’d never take a walk with me,
Would you?

her diamonds

Thursday, April 6th, 2017

“Oh what the hell” she says
“I just can’t win for losing”
And she lays back down
Man there’s so many times
I don’t know what I’m doin’
Like I don’t know now

By the light of the moon
She rubs her eyes
Says “it’s funny how the night
Can make you blind”
I can just imagine
And I don’t know what I’m supposed to do
But if she feels bad, then I do too
So I let her be

And she says, “oh,
I can’t take no more”
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
‘Cause I can’t help her now
She’s down in it
She tried her best and now she can’t win
It’s hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling down
Way down

Well she sits down and stares into the distance
And it takes all night
And I know I could break her concentration
But it don’t feel right

By the light of the moon
She rubs her eyes
Sits down on the bed and starts to cry
And there’s something less about her
And I don’t know what I’m supposed to do
So I sit down and I cry too
But don’t let her see

And she says, “oh,
I can’t take no more”
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
‘Cause I can’t help her now
She’s down in it
She tried her best and now she can’t win
It’s hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling down

She shuts out the night
Tries to close her eyes
If she can find daylight
Then she’ll be alright
She’ll be alright
Just not tonight

And she says, “oh,
I can’t take no more”
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
‘Cause I can’t help her now
She’s down in it
She tried her best and now she can’t win
It’s hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling

“Oh, I can’t take no more”
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
‘Cause I can’t help her now
She’s down in it
She tried her best and now she can’t win
It’s hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling down

(I can’t take no more)
(Diamonds on the floor)
(No more) no more
(No more)
Diamonds falling down
(I can’t take no more)
(Diamonds on the floor)
(No more, no more, no more, no more)
Diamonds falling down, yeah
(I can’t take no more)
(Diamonds on the floor)
(No, no, no, no)
Oh diamonds fall, and oh her diamonds
Diamonds falling down
I can’t take these diamonds falling down

i wish i was

Saturday, March 4th, 2017

On paper we go together
I know that we look the part
But almost never hangs on forever
I know I’m breaking your heart

So go on, say what you want to
I’m not gonna stop you
You can blame it all on me

I’m not the hero in the story
I’m not the girl that gets the glory
‘Cause you’re looking for true love
And I’m not the one
But I wish, but I wish I was
Hmm, I wish, oh I wish I was
Hmmmmm

Wish I could feel about you
The way you feel about me
But you can’t make a heart say something
That it don’t believe

So go on, hate me if you have to
I hate myself too
‘Cause as much as I want to be

I’m not the hero in the story
I’m not the girl that gets the glory
‘Cause you’re looking for true love
And I’m not the one
But I wish, but I wish I was
Hmm, I wish, oh I wish I was

Go on, hate me if you have to
I still care about you
Hmm, as much as I want to be

I’m not the hero in the story
I’m not the girl that gets the glory
‘Cause you’re looking for true love
And I’m not the one
But I wish, but I wish I was

Oh, ’cause you’re looking for true love
And I’m not the one
But I wish, but I wish I was
Hmm, I wish, oh I wish I was
Hoo, mmm
Oh oh oh
