I Think I Understand You Now

Here is a snippet of one of my songs that will be on my new CD, “Phoenix”.

I Think I Understand You Now

Lyric:  I Think I Understand You Now  (Annie Moscow 2010)

My father was a boxer

He went to school at night

Got 3 degrees and a good career to raise his family right

My mother, she worked in fashion

Led an independent life

She lived in New York City

till she became his wife

They moved out to the country

To a place they could call their own

But the price they paid for those 4 walls

was more than they could ever have known

And I think I understand you now

I never thought I would

But I think I understand you now

You did the best you could

They bought a house in Jersey

A split with paneled den

The grass was greener in New Jersey

At least it seemed so then

There were the Little league games for 15 years

My mother never missed a game

She cooked us dinner every night

It was never twice the same

She kept our house clean in New Jersey

The perfect suburban wife

Except for the times she would scream out loud she’d say

“God I miss my life!”

And I think I understand you now

I never thought I would

But I think I understand you now

You did the best you could

And you were

So far from perfect

And we kids knew it all

That you were

So far from perfect

And we watched you take the fall

But I think I understand you now

I never thought I would

But I think I understand you now

You did the best you could
