​The Written Word

This song is by Judie Tzuke and appears on the album The End of the Beginning (2004).

You want to save me
As long as it's you that's in control
You want to make my life like yours
Are you trying to buy my soul?

And if I get up off the floor
You want me to reach out for your hand
And speak when I'm spoken to
So the world thinks you're the man.

Why don't you hear me, are you even listening?
My voice will be heard.
I'm coming up shouting, but in my own way,
Hidden in the written word.

What are you saying,
Telling me I am wonderful?
I can move mountains
As long as I do it all your way.

I'll dance to your tune
And somebody else will pay.

Why don't you hear me, are you even listening?
My voice will be heard.
I'm coming up shouting, but in my own way,
Hidden in the written word.
