Face the Music

I went to school in Schenectady just far enough from home
Before I'd go to bed at night I'd set my mind to roam.
I'd listen to the radio new words rose in the air
Giving voice to these new feelings I'd kept hidden by my fear.
Chorus: You taught me to face the music
I'm so thankful to know that you're there
Sending out signals across the air.
In the words of a song, I found a place where I belong.
My thoughts were daring and anxious I was not alone.
I struggled out from beneath the sheets and hurried for the phone
I called the number she gave out I rehearsed each line with care
In the hopes that she would answer and with her these words I'd share.
She told me of a community that we are everywhere
She talked of concerts and festivals not too far from here.
Though we each have our own voice we're much stronger in a crowd.
I'm a woman loving woman say it strong and say it proud.
