I'm going to open up my black notebook
to see what I might find
I'm going to open up my black notebook
to the very last entry
to find I fell in love with a woman that day

Oh I fell in love with a woman that day
and it made me feel ugly 'cause
we're the same except she's so much better
We're the same, she's better, yes

She cuts to my heart like no man could ever do
'cause every bit of healing or giving in is guarded
She cuts to my heart like no man could ever do
'cause she knows I'm not a victim

I'm going to open up my black notebook
to the very first page
to find I fell into a hate with you that day
You never took me as I was
When I was sad you made me bigger
When I was too happy you said it figured

I like the fire in your daring eyes
But your grip on me has made me wither
I know where you learned this always wanting more
Haven't we been through this lesson before?
You learned it from your mother
and her from her mother before

She cuts to my heart like no man could ever do
'cause every bit of healing or giving in is guarded
She cuts to my heart like no man could ever do
'cause she knows I'm not a victim

Rosemary, Rosemary, Rosemary
I'm reaching for you
How did it come to be that the keepers were hated?
A woman says to me "don't make me feel guilty, not again"
I say "don't look to me for approval and I won't
look to you anymore"
I won't look to you (I'll just love you)
look to you (how I love you)
How did it come to be that the keepers were hated?

What we don't like about ourselves we toss around
and pass to someone else
We are all tied up in each other
I can't distinguish my frame
If you were my mother, you'd say "let's do it today"
If you were my grandmother, you'd say "I'll make everything okay"
If you were my girlfriend, you'd say "I almost like you"
If you were my sister, my neighbor, or my best friend
we'd all be talking at once
we'd all have two cents
Two cents of security in our bag
