Song Description

jazz-influenced folk song about getting over blame in a relationship

Lyrics

You say you were joking
But I'm not laughing
You say, Take it Easy
These Things Happen

It takes sticks and stones
to cause a bone to break
But words are the weapons
I can't take.

Sure I'm sensitive
I wear my heart on my sleeve
I'm a little bit softer
than maybe I should be

But do you know that I carry
this shield around
And I'm tired and I'm needing
to put it down.

Chorus
So, if you lend me your ear
That would be a good start--
but I need you to listen
with your heart.

And if you lend me your ear
That would be a good start--
but I need you to listen
with your heart.

Cuz if I go to the core
and you don't follow me
it'll add more than insult
to injury.

And if I tell you my story
and you can't hear
Then I'm more alone
than I even fear.
