What's the Big Deal?

Forgot this song for almost a year. I worked on it with The Buskers a couple of different ways, but the arrangement never came together. I think it wants a lush, pop groove. There was a problem lyrically: the tension between the title/hook, which sounds typically male and callous, and the empathy and support I want to drip from every line. So I just reworked the second chorus, which used to begin, "What's the big deal? Can't you read the signs? You're way out in left field, and you miss the ball sometimes." That stings. I don't mind a little frustration leaking into the vibe of the song, but ... I don't mean to be unkind. Here I am, expat in Germany, doubtful I will ever find audiences here
