John Frusciante - Inside of Emptiness

A Firm Kick

A firm kick in the pants
This last chance to get things right
This was one time I closed an eye
Looked away from you

Look out
For yourself tonight
Sometimes I have to get things right

I never meant what I said to you
To give up all the things that you love to do
I’d never guessed that you’d do me wrong
I’ll never accept that dance and song

A little time to adjust
Would be just what we need
I’ve meant to tell you what I think that you think
When I cross your mind

Stressed at the light
Whats wrong with being uptight?

I never say what I intend to
But does it mean that much to you
I’d a close call with a glitch in time
Are you really that happy to be mine?

No I’m not disguising
All that fighting
And dreams not coming true

I will play some light from the sun
The world by my side
I will see down as a forlorn maiden in the sky
And I will play a song of thunder you may recognize
You make a never
That’s forever
Knowing what you deny

When I revisit the past
It’s a blast
I’ve just gotta move on
I’ve just let down someone I relied on
And I don’t see why

How did we pretty up that speech
M City talking through me

I’ve never done what I set out to do
Don’t come to me ‘cuz I’ll run from you
Left out of life would I really care
Not a whole lot, there’s nothing for me there

I’ll never forget the limits that we set
Back when it was our moon
And I never made a pretense
Of living with good sense
It’s really not my strong suit
