LISA MAKES APPOINTMENTS

Lisa makes appointments for her friends to come and cry
She’s got a comfy shoulder and an empathetic sigh
Lisa’s had her troubles. Enough to last a life
And Lisa makes appointments so her friends can come and cry

Her friends don’t notice fingers that her father broke, each one
Like pretzels, brittle snaps, the little finger broke, each one
They don’t know about the husband that died so long ago
Or the house that washed into the sea and took away the road

*I don’t know how Lisa does it but he does it every day
The music in her heart must wash it all away
Lisa’s no above the storm and Lisa’s not beneath the frey
I don’t know how Lisa does it but she does it every day.

Yes, Lisa makes appointments for her friends to come and cry
About their freshly busted lip or their brand new blackened eye
Or a fingernail that’s damaged by the strings of a guitar
Or some imagined insult atop an imaginary scar

So, her friends go cry on Lisa and she takes it with a shrug.
The hell in all their lives won’t make a lump beneath her rug
And when the crying’s over she knows it’s just a phase
Lisa hugs her friends and writes another song of praise…*
