REAL WOMEN

by Lawrence J. J. Leonard

Black and white film brings out the best in every person
whether it’s eyes or cheekbones, and
sometimes it’s just the curve of the face.
Other times its a beautiful soul trapped in a human body.

In either case, New Order, the Manchester synth-dance-rock band,
has a great video of what real women look like.
Well, in the 20th Century.

“The picture you see is no portrait.”
So they are in film.
Airbrush-free and not digitally manipulated.
Thank you G_d for Earth women (said testosterone)!

That Love. Hate. Frustration. Fulfillment. Relationship.
Is why boys love their moms
Is why men become devoted husbands
Is why big boys do cry when they lose their female friend

Here are the lyrics to the video with the BEST eyebrows ever seen on a woman.
Yes. Seriously.

“Round and Round “

1989

I just can’t help thinking
What you’ve done to me

You built a wall of love
And tore it right down in front of me

And you think you know what’s going on
You keep telling me that I am wrong

I don’t care about what you do
‘Cause if you mess with me,
I’ll get rid of you

The picture you see
is no portrait of me
It’s too real to be shown
to someone I don’t know
And it’s driving me wild,
it makes me act like a child

You think I am crazy,
but what can I do?
(What can I do?)

You waste your time, like my money
It ain’t so funny, but it’s true
(Don’t waste my money, baby)

Now you can’t tell me what’s going on
And that I am weak
while you are strong

What is it you need
that makes your heart bleed
Do you really know?
‘Cause it doesn’t show

The picture you see
is no portrait of me
It’s too real to be shown
to someone I don’t know
And it’s driving me wild,
it makes me act like a child

Now you can’t tell me
what’s going on

And that I am weak
while you are strong

What is it you need,
that makes your heart bleed
Do you really know?
‘Cause it doesn’t show

The picture you see is no portrait of me
It’s too real to be shown
to someone I don’t know

And it’s driving me wild
it makes me act like a child
It makes me act like a child
it makes me act like a child
