Extras - Timely Persuasion


Deleted Scenes > Music > Lyrical Poetry


What I am is what I am. 

I am a rock. 

I am an island. 

I am the walrus. 

I am trying to break your heart. 

I am somewhere in the city, I am climbing up a fire escape. 

I am a lonesome hobo. 

I am the rat that killed your cat.

I am the heart of every marketing man.

I am lost, I'm no guide, but I'm on your side.

Here I am.  Here I am. 

I am woman, hear me roar.

“I am?” I said to no one there.


Maybe I didn't mean to treat you bad, but I did it anyway.

Maybe you still love me, maybe you don't.

Maybe baby, you'll be true.

Maybe I didn't hold you, all those lonely lonely times.

Maybe I’m headed over the hill, maybe I’ve set myself up for the kill.

Maybe I'm amazed at the way you pulled me out of time.

Maybe I’m afraid of the way I leave you.

Maybe someone’s gonna save me.

And just maybe I’m to blame for all I’ve heard.

Baby maybe someday...

I’m running down the road trying to loosen my load, got a world of trouble on my mind.  The world is collapsing around our ears.  I turned up the radio, and the radio man said women were a curse.  Listen mister can’t you see I’ve got to get back to my baby once more.  She told me to come, but I was already there.  While you were out, our whole future was in doubt.

Take me back, make it real.  Another man might have been angry, and another man might have been hurt.  But another man never would’ve let her go.  The good old days weren’t always good and tomorrow ain’t as bad as it seems.  Heaven is only one kiss away.  If one day you wake up and find what you make up, come and get me come and take me there. 

You left in the rain without closing the door.  She’ll tell you she’s an orphan after you meet her family.  I used to be cruel to my woman I beat her and kept her apart from the things that she loved.  Caught me watching your eyes watching things go by outside.

What goes on in your mind?
