You’re Not Watching – Ilana Charnelle

From the album A Minute of Your Time (2020).

They don’t write love songs for the lonely  

It’s always ‘the one’ never ‘hold me’ 

They never say what happened

If you’re not happy in the end

They won’t write pretty things about me

It’s either anger or they’ll doubt me

They never hang around to see

If I drowned or got set free

And it’s not the same if you’re not watching

I’ve got a point to make, and I’ve come knocking

On every goddamn door that ever slammed in my face

Yeah, I’ve got some scores to settle, and I’m sick of being gentle 

And it’s not the same if you’re not watching

I was soft once, but it bored me 

Cause every knock, well it floored me

I don’t mourn, I paid the price 

There’s nothing easy about being nice 

And it’s not the same if you’re not watching

I’ve got a point to make, and I’ve come knocking

On every goddamn door that ever slammed in my face

Yeah, I’ve got some scores to settle, and I’m sick of being gentle 

And it’s not the same if you’re not watching

So watch me, cause it’s not the same

No, it’s not the same if you’re not watching 

And wondering, and discussing 

So keep watching
