Song Description

About a father talking to his talented, gifted daughter about her life view and how it is creating the negative results she keeps complaining about.


Talking Real World

You say you can?t make new friends
Sounds like it?s a real dead end
You say nobody?s talking to you
But hey how can I get through
To all that energy locked up in your fear and pity
Pity for yourself and fear of really jumping in ...
Jumping in to your life

You?ve got a chip upon your shoulder
And while it?s not like some great big boulder
The weight has got you all off kilter
Your mind runs everything through filters
Hey we?re all in a trance
But yours won?t let you take the chance
Chance of letting someone reach you
Reach you who you really are
A star that?s burning bright

Hey I?m talking real world to you
There?s a fire that?s burning through you
If I gotta make you mad to feel it... That is what I?ll do
You think I?m trying to salt your wounds but
But girl you need to see the truth
Someday will never come until you
Get through being blue
The mothership?s not coming so
You might as well make do

You?re at a point of desperation
Tired of all your own creations
A portrait of your lonely self
The only thing upon your shelf
trying not to really be seen
holding back a silent scream
Tell me what?s the payoff
For never reaching out, what?s it brought you to?
