"Pauline Hawkins" as written by and Jay Gonzalez Brad Morgan....
Don't call me your baby
I won't answer
Love is like cancer
And I am immune

To all that you're bringing
The tune that you're singing
A sign of a locked room
I saw the locked room

It's such an illusion
Before the collision
I made a decision

Don't tell me your secrets
I'd rather not listen
I know what I'm missing
It's always too soon
It's always too soon to be cold for comfort
To belong to someone inside a locked room

But that always happens when nobody's looking (nobody's looking)

I really don't care what's inside you
I wont stand beside you or answer your calls

I don't want to fight now
I'm only here right now
This moment is all
This moment is all

Don't call me your baby
I'm nobody's baby
I won't let you cage me
Or lock me away

I'm not yours to keep
Don't want you to save me
You're just a vacation
A wonder way station
To keep me awake, until I'm ready to sleep
To keep me awake, until I'm ready to sleep
To keep me awake, until I'm ready to sleep

    General CommentFantastic song and lyrics. Just a lovely little song about a stubborn, unlovable kind of lady. Reminds me of one. :)

    General CommentThe songwriter actually credits author Willy Vlautin novel The Free for the character inspiration, which seems like a pretty good story. The character Pauline is a woman who had a pretty tough life and is shutting down emotionally while having to take care of everybody around her.
