Ani DiFranco – As Is


You can’t hide
Behind social graces
So don’t try
To be all touchy feely
’cause you lie
In my face of all places
But I got no
Problem with that really
What bugs me

Is that you believe what you’re saying
What bothers me
Is that you don’t know how you feel
What scares me
Is that while you’re telling me stories
You actually
Believe that they are real
I get no illusions about you

Guess what
I never did
When I said
When I said I’ll take it
I meant
I meant as is
Just give up
And admit you’re as asshole
You would be

In some good companyand I think you’d find
That your friends would forgive you

Or maybe I
Am just speaking for me
When I look around
I think this, this is good enough
And I try to laugh
At whatever life brings
’cause when I look down
I just miss all the good stuff
And when I look up
I just trip over things
I’ve got no illusions about you

Guess what
I never did
When I say
When I say I’lll take it
I mean
I mean as is
