lyrics

I am fusing with the background
I promise I was never here
I was never sweating fiercely
Never stumbling and weird
I am facing up to conflict
I am confident and sure
I'm not hiding in the bathroom
I'm reacting like I should

Why do you love me?
Why does anyone?

I always mumble or I talk too loud
I’m quiet or I can’t calm down
I can’t believe you want me around
I'm always listening to bands that you don’t like
Or writing songs you’re not too impressed by
The things I love are only mine
Most of the time

Am I missing some instructions?
Some kind of manual for this?
Intro to Small Talk With a Stranger
The Rudiments of Blending In
If I could pull myself together
Quell the shaking in my hands
I'd try acting like a person
Or pretending that I can

I always mumble or I talk too loud
I’m quiet or I can’t calm down
I can’t believe you want me around
I'm always listening to bands that you don’t like
Or writing songs you’re not too impressed by
The things I love are only mine
Most of the time

I am nervous, I am nerveless
I am fragile, I am frightened
I am careful beyond caution
I am altogether frail
I will rise to the occasion
Hobble through these conversations
I will operate correctly
I will try to be okay
Just please don’t lose faith
I will bend but never break

Don't give up on me

I always mumble or I talk too loud
I’m quiet or I can’t calm down
I can’t believe you want me around
I'm always listening to bands that you don’t like
Or writing songs you’re not too impressed by
The things I love are only mine
Most of the time
