Description
Short Song Description:
A classic rock style song with a driving style not unlike early Foreigner, only with a dynamic female singer.
Long Song Description:
Originally, we were writing about how doing things in vain is like pissing in the wind, but we softened that line up.
Story Behind the Song:
Essra and I were looking for a gentler way to describe people who were constantly fighting to win battles that were just losing situations...basically pissing into the wind.

WHY ARE YOU TRYIN TO BE SOMEONE YOU'RE NOT?
YOU SHOULD BE HAPPY WITH THE THINGS YOU GOT.
SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE A WHOLE LOT LESS,
BUT NOTHIN' OUTSIDE OF YOU BRINGS HAPPINESS.

(Chorus)
LET ME BRING YOU TO YOUR SENSES.
OH YOU CAN'T FOOL ME, OH BABY I'M YOUR FRIEND.
I CAN SEE THROUGH YOUR DEFENSES.
THEY'RE AN AWFUL LOT LIKE SPITTING IN THE WIND.

WHY CUT YOUR NOSE OFF TO SPITE YOUR FACE?
JUST GIVE IT TIME, YOU GOT TO GIVE IT SOME SPACE.
TAKE A LOOK AROUND BEFORE YOU COMPLAIN.
YOU'VE GOT TO GIVE UP SOME SUNSHINE WHEN THE FLOWERS NEED RAIN.

(Repeat chorus)

(bridge):
SEE THE BIGGER PICTURE, TAKE A BROADER VIEW,
WE ALL NEED UNDERSTANDING TO HELP US THROUGH.
TAKE THE TIME TO KNOW ME,
LET ME GET TO KNOW THE REAL YOU, THE REAL YOU.

YOU CAN BE HAPPY IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE.
GIVE THANKS FOR EVERYTHING THAT KEEPS YOU ALIVE.
APPRECIATION IS THE KEY TO IT ALL.
COMMUNICATION - BABY, MAKE THAT CALL.

(Chorus)
LET ME BRING YOU TO YOUR SENSES.
NO YOU CAN'T FOOL ME, OH BABY, I'M YOUR FRIEND.
I CAN SEE THROUGH YOUR DEFENSES.
THEY'RE AN AWFUL LOT LIKE SPITTING IN THE WIND.

(Chorus)
LET ME BRING YOU TO YOUR SENSES.
NO YOU CAN'T FOOL ME, I SEE UNDER YOUR SKIN.
BABY TAKE DOWN YOUR DEFENSES.
THEY'RE AN AWFUL LOT LIKE SPITTING IN THE WIND.
