"Today I don't need a replacement. I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant."- Peter Gabriel, Solsbury Hill


I thought that we were the same, but you're no different than the rest.
There's nothing I find you worthy of, least of all my respect.
I won't give in.
Oh, no, I won't give in.
We're not so alike, no, we're not the same kind.
I want nothing to do with your aggressive mind.
Though I smile on the outside, my soul burns within.
You are not my lover. I'm not of your kin.
I won't give in.
Oh, no, I won't give in.
I can feel you coming from a mile away.
Your eyes scald my back, so I wander astray.
Someday I'll tell you the way that I feel, but for now you're in power, and you want me to kneel.
But I won't give in.
Oh, no, I won't give in.

Not actually about a lover. It's about someone I hate, but am dealing with every day.
