If It Doesn't Come Naturally Leave It (LP Version) - Al Stewart

 

Nothing that's forced can ever be right

If it doesn't come naturally leave it

 

That's what she said as she turned out the light

And we bent our backs as slaves of the night

 

She lowered her guard and showed me the scars

She got from trying to fight

 

Saying oh you'd better believe it

 

Well I'm up to my neck in the crumbling wreckage

Of all that I wanted from life

 

When I looked for respect all I got was neglect

Though I swallowed the line as a sign of the times

But dealing a jack from the back of the pack

They said: You lose again

 

Oh I said: who needs it

 

Well don't get me wrong now I tried to get on

With the jokers that got in my way

 

And I put on a smile

And I tried all the while to be straight

 

But they just wanted more all the time

And I'm sure

That you know what I mean when I say

 

That I'm sick of the touch

And there's only so much you can take

 

Well nothing that's real is ever for free

And you just have to pay for it sometime

 

She said it before she said it to me

I suppose she believed there was nothing to see

But the same old four imaginary walls

She built for living inside

 

I said oh you just can't mean it

 

Well there was never a doubt

That she had to get out

She was just looking around for a way

 

In the pit of the night

There was nowhere to hide any more

 

She was out on a limb

She was reaching for things

That she wanted but just couldn't say

 

And she had to be sure that

She wouldn't get caught like before

 

Well nothing that's forced can ever be right

If it doesn't come naturally leave it

 

That's what she said as she turned out the light

And she may have been wrong

And she may have been right

 

But I woke with the frost

And noticed she'd lost

The veil that covered her eyes

 

I said oh you can leave it
