MAKE IT WORK FOR ME
Writer: Melanie Safka

From the album PALED BY DIMMER LIGHT (2004)

And if it's you
You're gonna love me
And if it's not
I'm going to find you
But if I don't
Iíll have to make it work for me

And if it's true
Iím gonna follow
But if it breaks me
Ill go on broken
Iíll dream of you
Iíve got to make it work for me

And when the sun sets upside down
And the hands of the clock go the other way Ďround
I know that it's not what the others might see
But I won't fall down from my vertigo dream
I found this way to fly, you see
By letting go and then holding on tight to nothing at all

And if it's you
In your magnificence
Or is it me who thinks you're heaven-sent?
I'll follow through
But Iíve got to make it work for me

And if it's you
You're gonna love me
And if it's not
Then I will find you
But if I don't
I'm going to make it work for me
Until the real thing comes along
I'm gonna to make it work for me

And when the sun sets upside down
And the hands of the clock go the other way Ďround
I know that it's not what the others might see
But I won't fall down from my vertigo dream
I found this way to fly, you see
Itís by letting go and then holding on tight to nothing at all
