You Lyrics

You - Bill Withers


You want to take me to a doctor


To talk to me about my mind


To try to give directions to some places


That I don't really want to find


Trouble in me is not related


To things that I might say or do


I'm really not that complicated


Your good doctor friend

He oughta talk to you


I notice that he can't remember


Things that he never should forget


And why does he spend his evenings

Smoking them funny cigarettes


I have a friend that knows your best friend


He goes some places where she goes


He said he saw y'all at a party


Sniffing white powder up your nose


You got the nerve to call me narrow-minded


'Cause I'm not loose and indiscreet


But people lying down always get blinded


By people standing on their own two feet


Life is just a shadow


That I just can't seem to find sometimes


But I guess I'll make it


'Cause I found out that it's really in my mind


Really in my mind


You shouldn't take it too seriously

'Cause it really ain't gon' last too long


It really ain't gon' last too long


You really only got two choices

You can lay down and be weak


Or you can stand up where you're at

And still be strong


Stand up and still be strong


Tomorrow depends too much on today


And yesterday


All that gentleman is to you is gone


All is to you is gone


All you find out looking back

Is the fact that both of us was wrong


Both of us was wrong


You're talking right to me

But you really ain't saying a thang


You're pouring muddy water on me

Trying to convince me it's rain


You're talking to me crazy

But you're trying to make me feel insane


Make me feel insane


You're like a Sunday family

Digging animals in a zoo


But while you're looking at monkeys

Monkey's looking dead at you


Two people getting done

Trying to figure out who's doing who


If you're throwing dirt at people

You got to get some dirt on you


I got to take a tone of lies

Just to get an ounce of truth from you


You're like a man loving Jesus

That says he can't stand a Jew


Get on down and play the dozens

Talk about four folks

From your mamma to your cousins

You down there

You know what I'm talking 'bout


You down there

You know what I'm talking 'bout
