I thought I’d grow out my hair to see if you noticed, and I’d start dressing nice to make you believe that I’m alright. I’d start playing sports to be more like my brother and my dad might be proud for once in his life.
Or maybe I’ll drink myself to sleep because that’s what I’m used to, and when I wake up I’ll feel brand new.
I’ll start tanning my skin to feel more like my mother, because I am a ghost in size small clothes and I guess I could use some color. Maybe I’ll smile, just like my ex-girlfriends. Because they can feel love, but I can feel anything.
So I thought I’d write you this song so you could get noticed. You could sing it along with your friends, in the back of their Mercedes-Benz
and me and my Volvo will be fine, and maybe i’ll close my eyes to feel more like myself.
