The Invisible Woman: She is Me
Walk On By
I am the Invisible Woman
With friends and acquaintances galore
But inside you really can't see me
I am dying each day wanting more
Of love I have dreamed of forever
Which disappears and cuts to the core
Starting out with so much promise
Can you tell me is it something I do?
Never mind, it is none of your business
Because it's all about you
You have pressing schedules that call you so often
Computers and phones and associates you adore
That tell you what you want to hear and I don't
You are the hero of their story and their store
They coddle and cajole your obsessions
You give them everything you can and then more
So I become the Invisibile Woman
In the morning as you walk out the door.
And the evenings, well they are no different
Brushing by me as you change your clothes
All that mattered was what was for dinner
As you brush by me three times or four
With never an offered affection
I perform the appropriate chore
Hoping that one day you'll notice
And through somehow a miracle more
So I stay the Invisible Woman
As you advance further down the line
And wonder again when it's over
Why I ever thought you'd be mine.
