Fear: When Luisa Said, "People Will Always Talk"

People will always talk, she says

Never will everyone be happy with 

What you do or say

People will consistently have something to say


People will always talk, she says 

But I don't want them to judge, I say

Who cares to be told they are wrong?

I want to be agreeable, I've got to be polite

But still, you can't please them all


 People will always talk, she says

Said Luisa to me, four years ago

A people-pleaser's life is not an easy one

So let them talk, they won't stop anyway

People will always talk, but what is there to fear?
