    i came across my old Carl SImon greatest hits cd when cleaning out my closet (no, no gay pun intended there!) last week; have been jamming on one song in particular: "Jesse (Hey Jesse)" from the early 1980's.

    In this song "the sexiest overbite in show business" ruminates about a past lover coming back into her life, someone that she has..shall we say...mixed feelings over.

    one verse seems to be reverberating in my brain: "..Let's drink to the heart that has a will of it's own".

    How "Real World Correct" this song still is!!

    This whole song has been stuck in my head, mostly for its genius writing



    This is the hidden truth,
    The world between the lines
    Where there is no understanding us
    These lines have marked divisions,
    The weaker seek to malign
    With this looming precious ending
    There's no more room for reprimanding.

    Ooooooooooooh, when the words are lightly thrown
    In a world that's caught in a writer's web,
    Humiliation reigns.

    Just leave us alone,
    If it's not worth the letting go,
    It's trouble, woah, woah (x2)

    Communications breaking up,
    The static cutting the lines
    This lying liar's had his turn
    You've managed nothing more
    Than a pathetic attempt at attack,
    But this heart is everlasting,
    Pushing forward, never crashing.

    Just leave us alone,
    If it's not worth the letting go,
    It's trouble, woah, woah (x2)

    State your case and go hide,
    Leave us to your worst
    I will never give in,
    To the hurt of your lies
    Cause there is no hope
    For all your jokes.
    And your plaguing insecurity
    Now I'll play your enemy,
    The only word you can find for me.

    Just leave us alone,
    If it's not worth the letting go,
    It's trouble, woah, woah (x2)

    Just leave us alone, (In this world of lines)
    If it's not worth the letting go, (the strong will decide)
    It's trouble, woah, woah (x2)
