"Little Conversations" as written by and Johnette Lin Napolitano....
The little conversation
Is over very soon
And I watch in admiration
From my corner of the room.
They shine on you with starry eyes
They rain a friendly storm.
Like kids around a Christmas tree
And then you smile all nice and warm

The little conversations
If I tried my very best
You know I never could say anything
In twenty words or less.
Somewhere, sometime, down the line
Someday I may confess,
And spill it all. that's all

The little conversations
On me are very rough
They leave me all in pieces
You know there's never time enough
Like a book with missing pages
Like a story incomplete
Like a painting left unfinished
It feels like not enough to eat.
Starvin'

These little conversations
Well for me they'll never do
Now what am I supposed to do with
Broken sentences of you?
I'll stay in my corner 'cause
That's all that I can do
And let the others speak for me.
Little conversations
Are we.

    General CommentWhen I first heard this song I thought Johnette had gotten into my head and written out all my insecurities and fears for me.

    General CommentFantastic song. Reminds me of being at a party when most the people have left and the remainders are sitting around talking - you might be a bit wasted and tired, but you're still somehow involved by the conversation simply by listening.
