i was you
from ON MY WAY TO WHERE
by Dory Previn
                  


 
i smiled
your smile
till my mouth
was set
and my face
was tight
and it wasn't right
it was wrong
i was you baby
i was you too long

i said
your words
till my throat
closed up
and i had
no voice
and i had
no choice
but to do your song
i was you baby
i was you too long

i lived
your life
till there was
no me
i was flesh
i was hair
but i wasn't there
it was wrong
i was you baby
i was you too long
and baby baby
the worst thing
to it
is that you let me
do it 
so who was weak
and who was strong
for too long baby
i was you.
