SHOULD HAVE BEEN A JESTER


On Tuesday when I was depressed
I told you I did something in jest
Because of the upset of last Friday's date
I wanted to turn gay, lose you and hate

All the time I wasted
All the healing I've tasted
When I'm here in those arms
And he seems unalarmed

At all I dish out
How I cry and pout
Say I did something wrong
Write about it in a song

When all that I did
Was shave something instead
Of only my armpits and legs
In a glance, I could see that your mind begs

For what I have to tell
To not sail
Into the deep of your soul
Baby, as I tease you, let the jester roll

Because the tears of this clown
Will always fall down
In their time and the place
When rejection is what I have faced

However, if I see it differently
Act out a role and laugh at me
The rejection doesn't hurt so bad
The jests are there to jump the sad

I love your laugh
Your expressive voice
When I shut up and
Let you make a choice

To talk or not to talk
As I'm trying to practice the latter
To walk the walk a jester walks
I jest you 'till you think I'm badder

Than I would ever be
My faithfulness to you from me
Is true, is right, is fine
There's only you, when I'm alone at night, you're mine!
