CASTIDEALIA

SHE SPEAKS OF HIM
 LACKING THE DEVOTION
TO STANDOUT 
ABOVE THE CROWD
SHE SAID HIS VOICE
 DIDN'T HAVE TO BE LOUDEST
HE JUST HAD TO BE LOUD
PROUD TO STAND BESIDE
AND EVEN PROUDER TO KNOW
HIS WAYS OF LOVING
SHE WAS PROUD TO SHOW
IF YOU GOTTA DISCUSS IT 
MAYBE SOMETHING AINT RIGHT
AND WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE THAT
 OFTEN THE OTHER TAKES FLIGHT
EXPLAIN AND REEXPLAIN THE 
OTHERS POSITION
THE NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT'S
GOING ON
AND WHAT GONNA GO DOWN
THEN MIGHT THESE BE WORDS 
THAT SOME STRANGER
MIGHT SEE TO SPEAK ON
GIVE THEM JAZZY QUOTES" LIKE-
DROP THE ZERO
FOR THE HERO"
OR " GET WITH WHAT HAPPENING MAN,
THINGS AINT LIKE THAT KNOW MORE"
SPEAK SOFTLY AND BE UNHEARD
THAT'S WHEN SOMEONE ELSE CAN
 CHANGE YOUR WORDS
