anticipate or my words are not suitable

i’ve got feelings. can’t really get to the bottom of them. lyrics do a better job.

so cliché that they’re ani difranco lyrics but stereotypes always come from some truth.

“Anticipate” 

you are subtle as a window pane
standing in my view
but I will wait for it to rain
so that I can see you
you call me up at night
when there’s no light passing through
and you think that I don’t understand
but I do
we don’t say everything that we could
so that we can say later
oh, you misunderstood
I hold my cards up
close to my chest
I say what I have to
and I hold back the rest

’cause someone you don’t know
is someone you don’t know
get a firm grip, girl
before you let go
for every hand extended
another lies in wait
keep your eye on that one
anticipate

dress down get out there
pick a fight with the police
we will get it all on film
for the new release
seems like everyone’s an actor
or they’re an actor’s best friend
I wonder what was wrong to begin with
that they should all have to pretend
we lost sight of everything
when we have to keep checking our backs
I think we should all just smile
come clean
and relax

if there’s anything I’ve learned
all these years on my own
it’s how to find my own way there
and how to find my own way back home
