Another song…Sick

So, I have written another song for my shirt album I am creating.  This song is growing on me pretty strongly.  I have others that I am pretty attached to right now, but I think this one will have a place in everyone’s life some how.  When I wrote the “Get Well Soon” song, I always felt like I was sugar coating my feelings some how about being sick.  When I read through countless posts on my social media feeds on breast cancer and MS, the one thing we all have in common is how we always hear “You don’t look sick.”  Then I started thinking about people with other types of illnesses and those who choose to take their own life’s because of mental illness or broken hearts.

I really don’t have to say much more, but to allow you all an opportunity to read the song and tell me what you think.  If you have any ideas on artwork, please feel free to contribute your thoughts and ideas..  I thought just putting a box of Kleenex in black and white on the front with the tissues being a certain color coming out of the box?

Please forgive the layout of the song.  For some reason it didn’t want to lay right within my post…

Sick

But you don’t look sick!—

Neither does the girl with the HIV

But you don’t look sick!—

Neither does that guy who has decided to say good-bye.
That beautiful girl over there—

With the gorgeous curly hair—

She just finished chemo-

Three weeks ago-

And just wants to know—

But you don’t look sick!–

Because I keep running to win that race.
But you don’t look sick!–

I just can’t keep up with your pace.
You can’t see what’s

Numbing me—

You can’t feel—

The guilt I keep trying

To peel—

But you don’t look sick!—

Because I keep running to win that race!—
But you don’t look sick!-

I just can’t keep up with your pace!-
Stop pressuring me!

I’m trying to be all that I can be.

I don’t want to walk around wearing a frown,
 

Looking like a damn clown

In order for you to know—

But you don’t look sick!-

I just can’t do it anymore.

But you don’t look sick!

Because I keep running to win that race.

But you don’t look sick!

I just can’t keep up with your pace!—
