Don't Shut Me Out

(Soulscript)
June 9, 2010

Home again. . . Late from work. Forgot to call. . . She’s so sure, it’s intentional
But I can’t win. . . She’s keepin’ score. And I can’t do this… Anymore.

But it wasn’t always this a-way; She’d say “Honey, how’s your day?”
But suspicion reared… It’s ugly head, And bitter feelings rise instead

Shut me up, but don’t shut me out
Why’s it all we ever seem to do is just scream and shout ?
Misery can’t really be what it’s all about…
If I can’t live, then I’ll live without; Shut me up but don’t shut me out!

Rumor mill’s on overtime. She drinks it up, like some treasured vintage wine
And I can’t win. . . ‘Cause I’m to blame… And even she’s not so sure why

But we can face anything if we can talk it over
What looms in ignorance keeps breaking us down.
(But) with communication, we’ll blow the cover off the darkness
But (now) the cold air is silent… And the silence is deafening!
Shut me up, but don’t shut me out
Why’s it all we ever seem to do is just scream and shout ?
Misery can’t really be what it’s all about…
If I can’t live, then I’ll live without; Shut me up but don’t shut me out!


Ruined lives and shattered dreams Are all to be my fault it seems
A dinner scorched, now paints the wall. . .And hearts are breakin’ down the hall…
Well now I’m standin’ in the kitchen And I’m listenin’ to your bitchin’
But you don’t know what your missin’ Cuz I’ve got the itchin’…
What your doing isn’t fair… Although, I know that you don’t care.
What you said I did, I dare you to prove. . . Cuz you weren’t there!

Shut me up, but don’t shut me out
Why’s it all we ever seem to do is just scream and shout ?
Misery can’t really be what it’s all about…
If I can’t live, then I’ll live without; Shut me up but don’t shut me out!
Shut me up, but don’t shut me out
Why’s it all we ever seem to do is just scream and shout ?
Misery can’t really be what it’s all about…
If I can’t live, then I’ll live without; Shut me up but don’t shut me out!
Shut me up, but don’t shut me out
Why’s it all we ever seem to do is just scream and shout ?
Misery can’t really be what it’s all about…
If I can’t live, then I’ll live without; Shut me up but don’t shut me out!
