Behind the Lyric, "Go Away"
Many of my own poems and lyrics were carved from love, hurt and sorrow. At times, it was my own, other times, I echoed the pain of the world around me.

“Go Away” A lyric I wrote after the incident where Rapper Fifty cent mocked an autistic man was out of empathy for that man. However, it was also intertwined with my own hurt.

I was struggling emotionally and suffering from systemic Lupus. With that I solicited the help of an ex-coworker. He was a doctor I worked with for more than four years. Instead of responding in a respectful manner, he berated me. I was in a difficult situation and had ongoing health issues, which was undiagnosed. I reached out believing he would surely help or offer advice, but I misjudged who he was as a person and his response was unexpected.

That was emotionally difficult for me although, I was not publicly humiliated the way Andrew that autistic man was.

However, both circumstances filled me with questions about human regard one for another. I wondered who own the ability to fully comprehend what it is like for someone else, and could be certain of facts without knowing. How could any hurt an individual and expect others to be gracious to them and dismiss their action as error? Would I have it in me to accept an apology and to leave that person to go on to hurt someone else? Does apologizing repair the damage or erase disrespect?

In the end, I concluded that sometimes it is better to move on and to not give another thought to disrespectful individuals. Then, I created the Lyrics to the song, “Go Away.”

That was good Ruth and and tell your vocalist he came across honest and true to the lyrics!
and the line "I’m grown up but inside I’m a kid."
That's me too... ;-)
Wish you love and success.

Hi Ruth. Lesley.
Welcome to Indie Music People.com

your point is a very good one...

and many is the time, I have opened my heart to a person,
only to have them laugh and kick me square in it,
'causing me to rethink a thing or two...

so, I try to go on, still being me, 'cause you gotta be who you are,
my mentor Lesley Gore taught me that, and well,
but, I also try to learn as I go... so now I don't open myself up as much,
but, I still try to remain mindful, that God Almighty made me to be a Light,
and a Light is supposed to light stuff, you know?

So, I try to do, well, kinda both...

Maybe now I try to put the Lampstand I am a bit higher up,
so that mean people can't knock me over so easy.

Your work is very moving, and God Bless.

That guitar-playing on Go Away, that's you? It's very nice!

So is the song structure and chord prog. You know what you're doing technically. And emotionally. Very professional.

Also really like Heaven Must Have sent You.

Very very good.

Dye your hair blond and you'll make it in this industry, eh? (Let's hope that's not necessary).
