Ani Difranco


Here for Now

I bet you’re wondering if you woke today
Just to learn why the caged bird sings
I bet you’re wondering if the goddesses are all crazy
Or just keeping it interesting
Situated slightly outside society
At odds with it’s odd offerings
I bet you’re teetering on the edge of sobriety
Just to alleviate a few things

Like the fear that you’re standing here
Because you want to be liked
Like you know you need your instrument
But does your instrument need to be mic’d
And you keep imagining that pretty soon
You will just disappear
And thinking that one thing is what saves you from
Your fear of being here
Here for now, you’re here for now, you’re here for now

I bet you’re looking for the little red ’x’
Next to the red arrow and the sign says ’you are here’
I bet you’re hoping that your heart will send up the white flag this time
Or some sign that the coast is clear
And the moment when your heart jumps in all that’s happening
It’s like the first time you felt that shock
Yes, your heart jumps in all that’s happening
And I was right behind the door when you knocked

Thinking maybe I’m just standing here
Because I want to be liked
Yes, I know I need my instrument
But does my instrument need to me mic’d
I keep imagining that pretty soon
I will just disappear
And thinking that one thing is what saves me from
My fear of being here
Here for now, I’m here for now, I’m here for now
Here for now, I’m here for now, I’m here for now
