Who is it? Jekyll or Hyde?

Who is coming in the door?
The man I married
But I’m not sure
Who he is when he arrives
Is he Jekyll, is he Hyde?

Every day
Every day
And nighttime too
Same Ol story
Who are you

Will you be nice
Smile and share your day
Or Hyde comes home
With anger my way
And blame me
Blame me
And then not talk
No no no no
Nothing’s wrong
And there go
The same ol song
Walking about in gloom
Dark clouds
That spread through the house
Like voices loud

I tire of the trepidation

I cooked you dinner
I paid the bills
I cleaned the house
The laundry, your will
I prettied myself
To make you smile
But you didn’t notice
You don’t
And I try

Once in awhile
Jekyll comes home
I like him so much
He’s so nice to me
Oh, how pretty you look
You’ve noticed I see
My spirit fills up
A balloon floating high
But lurking and waiting
Is Hyde just nearby
Waiting for anything to set
You right off
And again
I’m all wrong
Again it’s my fault

It’s a game that you play
With my head and my heart
A game I don’t like
It tears me apart
I’m the ping pong ball
You bounce back and forth
Til I’m dizzy, confused and all out of sorts

So finally so many years together have passed
And I found a way
To save me at last
Be it Jekyll or Hyde
I will not engage
I will not be part
Of the game or the rage

I love you still
With all of my heart
But to survive I must keep you
A little apart


Jekyll and Hyde
