John Foltz: listen

Here I Am Again, Feeling Blue

(John Foltz)
December 15, 2001
John Foltz / Charles C. Everett
Ever been in love with a girl that's way out of your league? Ever actually been with a girl that's way out of your league?

This song's for you.
I attest I am the one
I confess, but what’s done is done
What else can be said about me
I’m a man of superpowers
The caped crusader that comes to save the hour
With a will so strong
Yet I don’t belong in your business

My persistence is pressed
Anointed by what could be your love
The song about us, barely hummable
I’m aware, yet I remain immobile
Belonging myself in your up above
While keeping myself pulled away from your love
This business I am in
Has all but left me bones and skin
Please echo my humble cries
Take a look deep within my eyes
It’s a chance that’s worth giving up my desperate lies

It pains me to say to you
That I’m less of a man to stay with you
When neither will nor strength rings true
Here I am, again, feeling blue
Because I know I’m not for you

My persistence is pressed
Anointed by what could be your love
The song about us, barely hummable
I’m aware, yet I remain immobile
Belonging myself in your up above
While keeping myself pulled away from your love
This business I am in
Has all but left me bones and skin
Please echo my humble cries
Take a look deep within my eyes
It’s a chance that’s worth giving up my desperate lies
