Norwegian Blue

I put on my best outfit
Make my face up, do my hair
Want to look my bestest for you
So that you can see I care
Feel quite good about myself
When we are ready to go out
But at the dinner table you
Begin the niggles all about
How my looks are less attractive
And my waist is far too wide
I catch you ogling the waitress
When she stands right at your side
I feel inferior and ancient
My confidence, it hits a low
If that’s the way you want to play it
There’s a little place in Norway you can go

After the meal is done
(The insults coming thick and fast)
I infuse myself with wine
“No really, this one is the last”
You just can’t seem to help yourself
with speaking the harsh words
Not understanding the affect they have
Or how your mocking hurts
I’m even doubting my reflection
Sense dysmorphia rushing in
Feel I am no longer good enough
To feed your needs within
Yet, I smile in front of company
Don’t let my feelings show
If that’s the way you want to play it
There’s a little place in Norway you can go

I’ve seen this all before
I’ve had emotions such as this
Felt the gnawing in my gut
Sensed that something was amiss
Turned into a crazy lady
Thinking I was in the wrong
When told that I was ‘sensitive’
And needed to get strong
I am wiser now and learned
See it coming loud and clear
I see where it could lead to
In just another year
I think it’s time you took a holiday
I know just where you can go
Bought a one-way ticket for you
To a little place in Norway that I know
