In anonymity, it's easier to be real,
to face the emotion instead of fighting it,
and to express it, in all its vibrance,
not some pastel print of what's really underneath.

Well, we'll see.
  • I spent some time re-watching the videos of John’s new material tonight. (LOVE) 

    This one got me thinking. 

    I’d love to know when it was written.

    And I actually wonder if it might indeed be left off the album, and whether the title is ‘Speak For Me.’

    I’ve done a quick transcription of lyrics below. Though some lines are a bit dubious as indicated by * (Thoughts/corrections welcome!)


    ‘Speak For Me’
     

    Now the cover of a Rolling Stone

    Aint the cover of a rolling stone

    And the music on my radio

    Aint suppose to make me feel alone

    When I tried to know*

    I had to learn to let it go*

    Show me something I can be

    Play a song I can sing

    Make me feel as I am free

    Someone come speak for me

    Now they’re celebrating broken things*

    I don’t want a world of broken things

    You can tell that something isn’t right

    When all your heroes are in black and white

    When I tired of seeing*/Many tried to …*

    At least I still have yesterday*

    Show me something I can be

    Play a song I can sing

    Make me feel that I am free

    Someone come speak for me

    Someone come speak for me

    I’m not mad about it

    I’m not mad about it

    I’m not mad about it

    I’m not that mad about it

    Just show me something I can be

    Play a song that we can sing

    Make us feel like we are free

    Someone come speak for me

    Someone come speak for me

    Someone come speak for me

    Now the Cover of a Rolling Stone

    Aint the cover of a rolling stone.

      I wouldn’t be mad if he made an acoustic record all on his own, it would sound this good.
