Well she's kind o f like an artist
Sittin' on the floor
Never finishes, she abandons
Never shows a soul

And she's kind o f like a movie
Everyone rushes t o see
And no one understands i t
Sittin' in their seats

Well she dances alone in nightclubs
Every other day o f the week
People look right through her
Baby doll, check your cheek

And she's kind o f like a poet
Who finds i t hard to speak
Poems come so slowly
Like the colors down a sheet

She opens her mouth t o speak and
What comes out's a mystery
Thought about, not understood
She's achin' t o be

I've been achin' for a while now, friend
I've been achin' hard for years

Well she's kind o f like an artist
Who uses paints no more
You never show me what you're doing
Never show a soul

Well, I saw one o f your pictures
There was nothin' that I could see
I f no one's on your canvas
Well, I'm achin' t o be

She closes her mouth t o speak and
Closes her eyes t o see
Thought about an' only loved
She's achin' t o be
Just like me

One simple song and I am instantly 19 years old again.

I appreciate that you included the meaningfulness, of the lyrics, to you. So many just post lyrics without explaining why.

Opportunity may knock only once, but temptation bangs on the door forever!
