Reunion Lyrics

by Indigo Girls

I had guards like watchdogs
Dogs in a manger
I could feel the protection
Possession and anger
And I drove out of there
With no one behind me
Feelin' funny and free

All you pretty pretenders
Negligent vendors
Aren't you precious inside?
I have no need for anger
With intimate strangers and
I got nothin' to hide
(Yea)

I laughed as I said it
This is my situation
It's not pictures or privilege
It's just self preservation
I don't want you to feel
(I don't want you to feel)
Any obligation
It feels so funny to be free

All you pretty pretenders
Negligent vendors
Aren't you precious inside?
I have no need for anger
With intimate strangers and
I got nothin' to hide

We act empty and innocent
(I remember you)
But we are fueled by distortions
Of lives led in discontent
(When we were shiny and new now)
Trading misfortunes
(For your faith)
'Cause faith is one thing
That is hard to deliver
(Temper your speed)
It feels so funny to be free

All you pretty pretenders
(La la)
Negligent vendors
(La la)
(Aren't you precious inside?)
Aren't you precious inside?
(La la la)
I have no need
(I have now no need for anger)
(La la)
Intimate strangers
(La la)
I got nothin' to hide
I got nothin' to hide

Ooh ooh
(La la la la la)
La la la la la la
(Ooh)
La la la la la la
(La la la la la)
La la la la la la
(La la la la la)
La la love la love la
(La la la love la love)
La la la la la

All of us, all of us
(All)
(Aren't we?)
All of us, all of us
(Of us)
Pretty pretenders
Negligent vendors
Aren't we precious inside?
I have no need for anger
With intimate strangers and
I got nothin' to hide
I got nothin' to hide

I had guards like watchdogs
(I remember)
Dogs in a manger
(You)
