lyrics

If you see me for anything more than I am
I’m begging you please look again
Lock me up in the tallest of towers
Until I let my hair down braided with wilted flowers
And you’ll skeptically climb with your low expectations
There pacing I’ll be cursed with my lack of patience
And you’ll see me trembling and holding my breath
The truth’s in this brick room with four poster bed

If you see me for anything more than I claim
Please slam the door in my face
Heavy footsteps will prove that you’re gone
Disappointed eyes will fade from my memory before long
Give me time and I’ll try to become
Timid and fragile, a beaten dog or newlywed nun
Pictures I wish I’d drawn, songs I wish I had sung
Talking shit to the walls where no medals are hung

If you see me, if you see me again
Biased opinions changed over time
And new insecurities eat me alive
Well I am still thirsting, and I am still thinking
But I’ve yet to take comfort in solitary drinking
And if there is something I think you should hear
You’d better systematically shun me Or lend me your ear

If you see me, if you see me again
I might not be the same person that you remember
But I won’t be labeled return to sender
