Hello.

I'm going to keep doing this, but it's discouraging with no replies. If you read this, please post a comment, or it's not going to last much longer.

With that out of the way, I present to you another non-filk, and another House/Cameron sort of song from her POV that works best right after their date. It's The Fall of the World's Own Optimist' by Aimee Mann, and it _is_ rather metaphorical--I still think it works wonderfully. Enjoy!


There's no charity in you
and that surprises me
I guess I thought you were a golden idol
cause I called you majesty
on the balustrade
you watched me hunt for tips I was obliged to pick up
from the passing trade


Hey, kids--look at this
it's the fall of the world's own optimist
I could get back up if you insist
but you'll have to ask politely
cause the eggshells I've been treading
couldn't spare me a beheading
and I'll know I had it coming
from a Caesar who was only slumming
Hey, kids--look at this
it's the fall of the world's own optimist


Well, I could have objections
which you could override
but what's the point--we're only flogging the horse
when the horseman has up and died
once I testified
and swore I'd never leave a stone unturned--
I bet you're really glad that I lied

yes, you'll have to ask politely
yes, you'll have to ask
