Sshhh

This song is by Jane Child and appears on the album Here Not There (1993).

Your lips are moving, darling
I know you're saying something
It's revolutionary
But I'm not listening, honey
Casual conversation
I'm going through the motions
Inside I'm dying, baby
I think I'm going crazy

The judges nudge each other
They nod in recognition
They're consciously responding
To this divine condition
Inside my head I hear a
Choir of angels screaming
Why don't you
What's the matter
Why

Sshhh
I try to tell myself
No
I musn't let it show
Sshhh
I gotta keep control
Oh

You gaze into my eyes and
I know you're seeing something
It's revolutionary
But you're not listening, honey
A different here and now, I'm
Breathless in expectation
A little reassurance
Don't look, my hands are shaking

They talk about me, darling
Their voices loud as thunder
It's all that I can do to
Keep me from going under
If you could hear the voice in
My upper left-hand corner
Relentless motherfucker
Why

Sshhh
I try to tell myself
No
I musn't let it show
Sshhh
I gotta keep control
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah

And every second I'm awake
Every second I survive
Every ounce that I possess
Every second that I'm here
It's every second on the edge
Well, any second I could blow
Oh, oh, oh, oh

What if I fell apart and
Smashed to a thousand pieces
What if I gave it all up
And gave it all away
Would you say I was crazy
Would you have me committed
Would you embrace me, darling
Or turn and walk away

Sshhh
I try to tell myself
No
I musn't let it show
Sshhh
I gotta keep control
Sshhh
I try to tell myself
Oh
I musn't let it show
Oh
I gotta keep control
Oh
I try to tell myself
Tell myself
Tell myself
Tell myself

Oh
What if I let it show
Oh
I musn't let it show
Oh
I gotta keep control
Oh
Yeah
No, no, no, no
No, no, no, no
Oh

Oh
I'm gonna let it go
Let it show.
