THE SAME SITUATION Lyrics

Artist: Joni Mitchell
Album: Court and Spark

Again and again the same situation
For so many years
Tethered to a ringing telephone
In a room full ot mirrors
A pretty girl in your bathroom
Checking out her sex appeal
I asked myself when you said you loved me
"Do you think this can be real?"

Still I sent up my prayer
Wondering where it had to go
With heaven full of astronauts
And the Lord on death row
While the millions of his lost and lonely ones
CalI out and clamour to be found
Caught in their struggle for higher positions
And their search for love that sticks around

You've had lots of lovely women
Now you turn your gaze to me
Weighing the beauty and the imperfection
To see if I'm worthy
Like the church
Like a cop
Like a mother
You want me to be truthful
Sometimes you turn it on me like a weapon though
And I need your approval

Still I sent up my prayer
Wondering who was there to hear
I said "Send me somebody
Who's strong, and somewhat sincere"
With the millions of the lost and lonely ones
I called out to be released
Caught in my struggle for higher achievements
And my search for love
That don't seem to cease

Iíve been in the same situation
For so many years
Like running on a treadmill
In a room full of mirrors

It seems I can win for losing
So I donít even try
I just wear a big smile
While inside I die

I donít need another mother
I left home long ago
You think yours is the only way
But you donít even know

What you call love is like a weapon
And it deeply punctures my soul
Iíve been forced to become a diplomat
Just to keep things under control

Still I send up my prayer
Because I know He will hear
I fall to my knees
In an attempt to be sincere

My name is in your book
And one day you will know me
Iím a poet and a pirate
And I plundered this from Joni
