"Love is not a victory march. It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah..."

You think that you understand what’s going on, but your overly sensitive demeanor can now lead you astray. You see the wounds in others and you want to fix them. You can become so sympathetic that you take care of everyone else except yourself. Don’t become a martyr. And don’t whine about your situation. You can help others most effectively by helping yourself.

Sistersong
Lyrics by Rachael Sage

Everybody's lookin' over your shoulder
Seems thy can't wait to hear what's next
Everybody's sayin' she's lookin' older
Could it be there is a cruel subtext to

All this endless adulation
All this reckless fatuation and

I will stay with you tonight in
Case this corset gets too tight and
I will keep you company 'cause
That's what a sister should be

So they said it was the year of the woman
I believe it was the year of sex
Maybe this'll be the year of the human
Maybe that would be a bit complex for

All this endless aberrations
From meaningful expectations so

I will stay with you tonight in
Case this corset gets too tight and
I will keep you company 'cause
That's what a sister should be

Everybody's lookin' under your mattress
Seems they can't wait to find that pea
Maybe you were never quite the princess
Everybody was afraid you'd be and

All these endless presentations
Must affect your concentration so

I will stay with you tonight in
Case this corset gets too tight and
I will keep you company 'cause
That's what a sister should be
