    I'm sorry, I just had to post this. It's buy a folk-ish singer, named Pete Krebs. Such a lovely tune. Called "Shytown"

    Crossing my eyes and making
    Faces
    I hope we don't go too many
    Places
    Cause then before I go to sleep
    I'll wonder exactly what she
    Means when
    When she says I am too shy
    Finding a way to stay inside
    She always asks me are you
    Having a good time
    Come in here where the band is
    Playing
    Are you coming along or are
    You staying
    I'm fine-quit asking

    It's the hardest thing to meet
    Her friends
    I always feel like I have to
    Entertain them
    All alone with the jokes I forget
    I'm someone's boyfriends and a
    TV set
    I live in Shytown

    Why does it feel like night today?
    Something in here's not right today.
    Why am I so uptight today?
    Paranoia's all I got left
    I don't know what stressed me first
    Or how the pressure was fed
    But I know just what it feels like
    To have a voice in the back of my head
    It's like a face that I hold inside
    A face that awakes when I close my eyes
    A face watches every time I lie
    A face that laughs every time I fall
    (And watches everything)
    So I know that when it's time to sink or swim
    That the face inside is hearing me
    Right underneath my skin

    It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
    It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
    It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
    It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

    I know I've got a face in me
    Points out all my mistakes to me
    You've got a face on the inside too and
    Your paranoia's probably worse
    I don't know what set me off first but I know what I can't stand
    Everybody acts like the fact of the matter is
    I can't add up to what you can but
    Everybody has a face that they hold inside
    A face that awakes when I close my eyes
    A face watches every time they lie
    A face that laughs every time they fall
    (And watches everything)
    So you know that when it's time to sink or swim
    That the face inside is watching you too
    Right inside your skin

    Chorus

    The face inside is right beneath your skin (3x)

    The sun goes down
    I feel the light betray me (Repeat until end)

    Chorus (Repeat until end)

    "Raindrops falling on my head . . . "

    :mrgreen:

    Though, at work, it's recently been "(first line), wondering why my patients didn't stay in bed, wandering down the hall, into other rooms . . . "

    sorry. just got off.

    (hums bad lyrics to self)

    Ironically, that was my favorite song when I was a little kid.

    I cried after my grandmother accidentally left the cassette tape on the dashboard and it was ruined.

    I used to sing it all the time too. But I didn't know the words only the first line and the tune so I'd sing "Raindrops keep falling on my head, that doesn't mean that i am nearly dead" and start making up my own lyrics.
