You Make Me Feel Mighty Real

Sat Oct 14, 2000 7:10 am

I love this song, and with so many gay members on the forum and some people taking those first brave steps of coming out, I thought I'd post the lyrics here. It's about coming out in San Francisco in the 70's but it applies to any time...


Oh, you make me feel, mighty real

San Francisco, I say.....

You make me feel, mighty real

Sylvester you’re an angel walking among us, on the face of this earth

You were so beautiful, You were so fragile.....You were so real.....


Oh, you make me feel, mighty real
My darling
You know, you make me feel mighty real

It’s your first night out, you weren’t sure what you’re about
but tonight, somethings going down
Castro Street on a Saturday night, it was outta sight
Macarthur Park melting in the background...

You walk into the disco, and hit the dance floor
feel a little out of place but you know you want more
(but) Baby now you’re free, and it’s gonna be alright
‘cause somewhere in this world you’ll find true love tonight

Oh, you make me feel mighty real
My darling, you know
You make me feel, mighty real

You leaned against the wall, you felt so shallow felt so small
caught up in this first hot night
You looked across the room, and your heart went zoom
he walked right over said, “I’ll treat you right”

You walked outside, the air was fresh and sweet
rain falling down, your heart you conceal
You get on the back of his motorcycle
hit the pavement and babe you feel so real

Oh, you make me feel, mighty real
My darlin’ you know
You make me feel, mighty real

It’s time to live this brand new life
doing what you felt was right
Don’t ever look back, alright?

Be true to your heart,
do it right from the start,
and heaven will be yours

Oh you make me feel, mighty real
My darling, you know
You make me feel, mighty real

(you know you make me feel real)

The disco song was included in the top 100 Dance Tunes of all Time. Sylvester was quite the entertainer! But where did you get the lyrics to the song you typed? Is it the same song or another one?

It is a different song. It came from the 1994 album "Excuses for Bad Behavior" by Sandra Bernhard. Also, if you've seen the documetary "Unzipped" about Isaac Mizrahi, it is the theme song, plus Isaac used it in one of his runway shows, which is also featured at the end of the film.
