A song about the weirdness of being me


I will always be on cloud nine
Until it gives out from under me
When rain starts falling suddenly
And I will always wear half a smile and half a frown
Oh, you can count on it being bittersweet

I will always be my own
I will always be

I will always be nervous, apparently
It matters not how many times
I pluck my strings or read my rhymes
And I will always stay quiet while my head is screaming
Oh, what's the matter darling,
Can't you handle what I bring?

I will always be my own
I will always be

I will always be up for a game of cards
Or watching the sun set just a little after midnight
And I will always be game for a scary movie
Oh, come and cuddle with me
We will keep each other safe
Tonight, tonight
