Taking off my favorite shoes Dare I dip my toe into the stream Of truly basic human emotion? (Doot, doo-doo, doot, doo-doo) In the moment I can feel Oh, my little stream is leading me Over the rocks, but towards the ocean. (Doot, doo-doo, doot, doo-doo) My heart is rushing My face is flushing My tears are gushing But what does it mean? How do you feel? (I'm feeling fine.) Every night and every day, Affect traffic courses through me It is my lifeblood, this is my joy. (Feel feeling, how do you feel?) And in the moment we apply Category knowledge to the scene, Bringing meaning for us to employ. (Feel feeling, how do you feel?) My feet are shaking My nerves are quaking My heart is breaking But what do I know? How do you feel? (I'm feeling fine.) It's the deepest mystery How we see emotions all around When the markers are so shabby. (Where you gone to, Billy J?) Deep in the amygdala, Crashing, flashing, lighting up the charts: My brain is telling me I'm happy. (Feel feeling, how do you feel?) My pulse is rushing My skin is flushing My nose is running But how do I know? How do you feel? (I'm feeling fine.)
