Woman Of Heart And Mind - Joni Mitchell

    I am a woman of heart and mind
    With time on her hands
    No child to raise
    You come to me like a little boy
    And I give you my scorn and my praise
    You think I'm like your mother
    Or another lover or your sister
    Or the queen of your dreams
    Or just another silly girl
    When love makes a fool of me
    After the rush when you come back down
    You're always disappointed
    Nothing seems to keep you high
    Drive your bargains
    Push your papers
    Win your medals
    Fuck your strangers
    Don't it leave you on the empty side
    I'm looking for affection and respect
    A little passion
    And you want stimulation-nothing more
    That's what I think
    But you know I'll try to be there for you
    When your spirits start to sink
    All this talk about holiness now
    It must be the start of the latest style
    Is it all books and words
    Or do you really feel it?
    Do you really laugh?
    Do you really care?
    Do you really smile
    When you smile?
    You criticize and you flatter
    You imitate the best
    And the rest you memorize
    You know the times you impress me most
    Are the times when you don't try
    When you don't even try
