On Average

Words & music © 2014-2015 Lawrence Mark Lesser

She tries to "fix" me or she's silent all night;
Neither's what I want, but on av'rage, it's all right.
It's like my head's in an oven and my feet in a block of ice:
The temperature on av'rage is one that would suffice!
At my center, a funny valentine
Says.... "on av'rage, I'm fine!"

I can be so left-brained and hardly feel my heart;
I can be so right-brained and be taken off guard.
The sides of my brain never align
But on av'rage, I'm fine!

BRIDGE: Average manages to only go so far--
Gotta know my range when I play a mean guitar!

I have a broken heart and ache in my soul,
But have a brand new car and a million-dollar home.
I'm poor in spirit, but I can buy good wine....
On av'rage, I'm fine!

Half of you love this tune and say it's worth a prize;
The rest find it worthless and something to despise!
Some give ovations, some let tomatoes fly:
Guess on average.... it's fine!
