WHAT AM I TRYING TO PROVE?
lyrics (c) 1995 Jonathan Caws-Elwitt
What am I trying to prove by showing you the things I feel?
What am I trying to prove, delineating my whole deal?
Look at me on the move
I'm sexual, conceptual, and way too intellectual
Spontaneous, extraneous and truly miscellaneous
What am I trying to prove by playing you my favorite songs?
What am I trying to do?
Perhaps I'm coming on too strong
But what have we got to lose?
You're elegant, benevolent, exquisite and magnificent
I'm glad about you, mad about you
There is nothing bad about you
You'll prove me right or you'll prove me wrong
Let's put it to the test
Move me in or I'll move along
Do whatever's for the best
This could be an inspired moment or just a big mistake
Aren't you kind of curious 'bout the point I'm trying to make?
What am I trying to prove by asking you to hear me out?
What am I trying to prove by clarifying every doubt?
Look at us trying to move
We're laughable, irascible, impatient and impassable
But don't you see how we could be?
I think that we're compatible
