Speak for yourself, I don't play along so well
And truth be told, I don't have the time of day
Your so smart, no one likes a liar
Stand your ground, cause I don't need another friend

Please speak to me with empathy
And I wont fight back
I waste my time
You get your way
Please speak to me with empathy
And I wont fight back
I waste my time

Your skirt raised high
Nervously you crack a smile

    General CommentThe song’s obviously about empathy…being able to walk in another’s shoes and not wish to hurt them. Did you wonder if s/he smiled as s/he danced with him? Did you wonder if they laughed together? Did you wonder if s/he held her hand; kissed her cheek; and invited her home with him? Did they laugh as they were under the covers? Did s/he gently move his fingers down the length of her body and did s/he him? Did they move together in perfect motion? Did he whisper in her ear that he loved her? Did s/he him? Did they make plans to see each other again? Will they celebrate their experience in song…perhaps Kings of Leon. And will it hurt? This is a good song, if a person is able to experience empathy. How did it feel wearing the shoe all night? And why would anyone wish someone else to experience the pain?
