about

A reminder to myself to say NO and why because it's so hard for me.

lyrics

Yes I wanna say
yes I wanna say
yes I wanna say ah ah
Take the phone away
No I cannot play
There’s no easy way- ya ya
Making everyone happy
Handing it out like a candy
I can’t bring myself to disappoint
Hear the awkward after I say NO
How do I say?
What do I say?
How do I say? NO
What do I say?
How do I say?
What do I say? NO NO X2
I’m like an oil spill
Coating everything with art
Only the surface gets a head start
Feeling like a fossil
Using up my fuel
This kinds of lifestyle needs renewal
Growth lives underneath
But I need room to move
Fatten up the space around you
Not thinning out your dreams
Not hoping to float back up a downward stream

Always feeling like a chore
Then I work and work and work some more
Time is narrowing
And I’m bending like a dorsal fin
Where I bend dictates where I go
I’ve been to Oz and back
Keeping low
Following like Toto
I’d like a hand in my own puppet show
Stop lying like Pinocchio to myself
Forget quid pro quo
I’m aiming further over the rainbow

Thickening my skin takes practice
And I’m not well rehearsed but getting better versed at saying no to you and therefore saying yes to me
So when you ask and my mouth gets dry
My people pleasure inside has signed on the dotted line
And While I think
And while I think
And while I think
I have no excuse
Except that I want to try being happy
Forgive me
I put you on the ignore list and swallow
Yes I wanna say
yes I wanna say
yes I wanna say ah ah
Take the phone away
No I cannot play
There’s no easy way- ya ya
Making everyone happy
Handin it out like a candy
I can’t bring myself to disappoint
Hear the awkward after I say NO
How do I say?
What do I say?
How do I say? NO
What do I say?
How do I say?
What do I say? NO NO X 2
Guilt, guilt, guilt, guilt…….
Let’s practice….No No No NO NOONOO No No nO!
