  1. I'm remembering lyrics from Supertramp - one song in particular because it begs the release of tears, sorrow and empathy - and I have no tears left. I wish I could cry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! God how I wish I could cry... These words are truer tonite than when they first moved me three decades ago...How can it be that music that moved me so much then can mean *a universe* more these days. I'm listening to it right now on my *ancient* turntable (do y'all know what a turntable is?) (I'm showing my age...)
    It's from the album Crime of the Century -1974
    It's called...


    " Hide in Your Shell"...
    (The rest of the album is UTTERLY superb as well, but I digress)(any other fans out there????)

    Hide in your shell cos the world is out to bleed you for a ride
    What will you gain making your life a little longer?
    Heaven or hell, was the journey cold that gave your eyes of steel?
    Shelter behind painting your mind and playing joker

    Too frightening to listen to a stranger
    Too beautiful to put your pride in danger
    You're waiting for someone to understand you
    But you've got demons in your closet
    And you're screaming out to stop it
    Saying life's begun to cheat you
    Friends are out to beat you
    Grab on to what you scramble for

    Chorus:
    Dont let the tears linger on inside now
    Cos its sure time you gained control
    If I can help you, if I can help you
    If I can help you, just let me know
    Well, let me show you the nearest signpost
    To get your heart back and on the road
    If I can help you, if I can help you
    If I can help you, just let me know...

    All through the night as you like awake and hold yourself so tight
    What do you need, a second-hand-movie-star to tend you?
    I, as a boy, I believed the saying the cure for pain was love
    How would it be if you could see the world through my eyes?

    Too frightening- the fire's getting colder
    Too beautiful- to think youre getting older
    You're looking for someone to give an answer.
    But what you see is just illusion
    You're surrounded by confusion
    Saying lifes begun to cheat you
    Friends are out to beat you
    Grab on to what you can scramble for
    Dont let the tears linger on inside you...
    It's sure timje ytou gained control
    If I can help you
    ... just let me know
    I wanna know...
    I wanna know you...
    Well let me know you
    I wanna feel you
    I wanna touch you
    Please let me near you
    Let me near you
    Can you hear what I'm saying?
    Well I'm hoping, I'm dreamin, I'm prayin
    I know what youre thinkin'
    See what you're seein'
    Never
    Never
    never ever let yourself go

    Hold yourself down, hold yourself down
    Why dya hold yourself down?
    Why dont you listen, you can
    Trust me,
    Theres a place I know the way to
    A place there is need to feel you
    Feel that you're alone
    Why don't you hear me
    I know exactly what you're feelin'
    Cos all your troubles are whithin you
    Please begin to see that Im just bleeding too
    Oh, Love me, love you
    Loving is the way to
    Help me, help you
    - why must we be so cool, oh so cool,?
    Oh, were such damn fools...!
