You’re in My Way

“You’re in my way,” states Lt. Cmdr.  Shelby in the lift with Commander Riker from the Star Trek Next Generation scene in Best OF Both Worlds, Part 1.  She was encouraging him to make way for her to take charge and Riker wasn’t pleased.  It was a great scene♫♪

Yes, I’m a Star Trek fan.  Grew up watching the original series.  This line stuck with me and turned into verses, with a tune and an attitude. Turned out to be more focused on road metaphors, but the idea sparked from Star Trek.


You’re In My Way

You’re in my way….

For every car on the road

I check that license plate code

To see if you’re at the wheel, because I feel…


You’re in my way.

Get out of my way.

You’re in my way.

You think you own this road

But it’s double-laned.

I won’t re-adjust my attitude

Your style has waned.

You’re in my way.

I chanced upon an old note.

It gave my heart quite a jolt.

It was unfair from the start that you’re so smart….Refrain

I always set my own pace

But my mind glimpses your face.

I struggle under your gaze, your steady gaze.

You’re in my way!


You’re in my way…

You have your motor warmed up

And have no fear getting stopped.

You will just work that old charm, that boyish charm.

You’re in my way.

Get out of my way.

You’re in my way.

We may be on the same course

But I will not let you force

Your way back into my life. I will survive.

You’re in my way

Get out of my way.

You’re in my way. (2x)

Get out of my way.

    Haha…I think anyone on the road in front of me is in my way… well, almost everyone…well, occasionally…well, I guess I don’t really own the road…although I do pay taxes… fun post.

    Not a war trek fan, either, but find the fascination of the series and movie very interesting. And I like the scene you described.

  4. I’m going to listen to your song now. I sent you an e-mail on downloading your songs.

    I’m incredibly technologically challenged…

    But I always love listening to your music.

    Thanks for sharing it.


  5. I really like Holding Pattern, too.

    Your voice is neat in that one.
