Private Conversation lyrics

Private Conversation

An obvious connection
I tried so hard to hide
Couldn't even say it to myself
An obvious connection
I tried to push aside
Into a corner on the darkest shelf
We'll never be alone
And my feelings can't be shown
So I try to imagine and replay
All the things I'll never get to say
You're wrapped up with another
Tangled and entwined
I invent a separation
In the private conversation in my mind
I resolve to say it all
Then I hem and haw and stall
For how could I come clean or confide
Someone else is always at your side
I want
I want
I want to tell you
I want
I want
To get you alone
I need
I need
I need to tell you
I want you for my own
If we could steal a moment
Would you be so inclined
To accept an invitation
To the private conversation in my mind

Terry imagines Daisy walking towards him, without Violet...

What do you want to say to me, Terry?
Tell me, this is your chance
What do you need to say to me, Terry?
Does is concern romance?
Here I am
All alone
Yours to take
Smooth me out
Calm me down
Stop the ache
Don't hold back
Don't hold off
Hold me tight
Don't object
Let's connect
Let's unite

But you can't lose your shadow
That tie you can't unbind

You've made us all alone now

All alone, but only in my mind

A mind is very private
We often meet in mind
Let me show you what we do there
The way we kiss
The way we intertwine
I want
I want
I want to show you

Show me what?

I want to show you desite
The heat
The flames

I'm burning for you

I know you are on fire
Why not be bold?
I'm crazy about you
I say it with every glance
My arms are cold and lazy without you
Come on, why don't we dance?

They dance...

I want
I want
I want to keep you

Keep me where?

I want you all for my own
My own
My own

You have to share me

Oh no, I want you alone

Daisy goes back with Violet...

I imagine us so well
How you'd dance and taste and smell
I can imagine me with you
But I don't have the guts to follow through
You're one half of a couple
That's how you are defined
And my only consolation
Is the private conversation in my mind

Terry leaves, and Buddy enters to perform a song on the radio...

On The Road
