Your Congratulations

Alanis Morissette1998年11月3日


I wouldn't have compromised as much


So much of myself for fear of having you hating me

I wouldve sung so loudly


It wouldve cracked myself


I became so self-conscious of anything exuberant


I wouldn't have sold myself short


I wouldn't have kept my eyes glued to the ground

If I hadve known my invisibility would not make a difference


I wouldve run around screaming proudly at the top of my voice


I wouldn't have said it was in fact luck


I'm talking idealism here


I would not have been so self-deprecating


I wouldn't have cowered for fear of having my eyes scratched out


I wouldn't have cut my comfort off


I wouldn't have feigned needlessness


I would not have discredited every one of their compliments


It was your approval I wanted

Your congratulations
