Janis Joplin – Intruder lyrics

You come around here
Trying to make your demand.
You've got a need, darling,
I've seen it grow and expand.
Yeah, you want to reveal my life
With your own two hands.
Well, tell me now
What are you trying to do ?
Those holes in your life
Show what you require.
You're needin' new eyes,
Oh Lord, honey take any wire ?
Yeah you've gotta save us all
Before the next big fire.
Tell me now
What are you trying to do ?
Walked in my life,
Child, and I don't even know your name.
You put others around behind ya
As if they were lame.
You insist a simple feeling
Will be all the same.
Well, tell me now
What are you trying to do ?
Now I look like I'm suffering,
N-n-n-n-n-n-now I'm doing fine.
One look at yourself baby,
Child, I got you alive.
Yeah, you're gonna take care of yours,
I'll take care of mine.
What are you trying to do ?
