How To Be A Woman

from by Melanie Dewey



stuck here staring at these four walls
move ever so slightly
just to make sure my legs don’t
fall asleep into this nightmare I’ve been living
‘cause just one step from you and I lose
everything I thought I knew
I’m tugging slowly at my curls, I feel like a little girl

all this time I thought I was learning
how to grow up and be something
but I don’t know how to be a woman
and you don’t know how to be a man
‘cause you think that you can just close your mouth
and I’ll never know what you’re thinking about
I know I might not be a woman now
but you’ll never be a man.

they say silence makes you stronger
but my mind just wanders
aimlessly until I build a wall
of questions I can’t seem to get over
Maybe you’re the ghost that’s keeping watch**
on this castle deep inside my thoughts
telling me to act my age, funny you should say


You think that you can
just walk right through me
come on be a man
finish what you started baby
you always said I’d be your girl
