ANYHOW

I haven’t got the will to speak
I haven’t got the time of day
And I can’t feel my heart beat
In the most peculiar way

I like to say what I think
Silence is only for the weak
But this silent man has got a plan
That you’ll find when he speaks anyhow

Anyhow, you don’t look too surprised
Anyhow, it’s all just compromise
It’s all just compromise, it’s all just compromise

I want to dream without fear
That you’ll still come and find me here
Easy to hold in this winter’s cold
But you’ll go without care anyhow

Anyhow, you don’t look too surprised
Anyhow, it’s all just compromise
It’s all just compromise, it’s all just compromise

I went to the corner market looking for a lemon
Instead I found a cherry in the midst of many women
She still had her pit inside, but then I ate it out
Her beauty had been stolen from within and then without

From within and then without, water then a drought
From within and then without, water then a drought
From within and then without, devoured then devout
From within and then without, devoured then devout

Anyhow, you don’t look too surprised
Anyhow, it’s all just compromise
It’s all just compromise, it’s all just compromise

The light in my life is gone
I think I may have lost it
Or misplaced it
One of the two is wrong

It wasn’t a figure or even a façade
But it’s obvious it didn’t mean a lot
If I just let it go, if I just let it slip away
If I just let it go, maybe it’ll come back to me some day, some day

At a time when hate was overflowing into me
I had to go and become a part of inadequacy
I cheated on dignity with lust and stupidity
If a broken heart can’t beat that fast, than why’s mine pulsating

Anyhow, you don’t look too surprised
Anyhow, it’s all just compromise
It’s all just compromise, it’s all just compromise
