Small Town 04:35
Big-eyed beautiful oh She’s so wonderful, she said to me: “What’s wrong with my face, What’s something I can change so they’ll like me?” I shake my head and say: “Life made you this way, and that’s lovely to me I’ll let you in on something new, Something I’ve had to learn too.” Perfect is as perfect does And perfect is full of shit And people are too quick to judge And you shouldn’t feel like this Oh small town, you’re bringing her down Please just let her go To where the lights glow Oh small town, someday she will leave you And she will be free to Go where she is loved Go where she is loved They say he hit a wall, it All just got too much At least, that’s what I heard Questions were never asked, he Simply wasn’t like the rest of his class Faces like the wind, they’re There and they’re gone again And no one ever knows why We love the quirky ones, but He crossed the line No one ever told him where it was And perfect is as perfect does And perfect is full of shit And people are too quick to judge And you shouldn’t feel like this Oh small town, you’re bringing him down Please just let him go To where the lights glow Oh small town, someday he will leave you And he will be free to Go where he is loved Go where he is loved Different is okay Different is okay Different is okay That’s what they say Different is okay And not just in the simple ways You can be confused You can be bruised Different is okay Say it ‘til we see it Different is okay Say it ‘til we mean it Oh small town, you’re bringing me down Please just let me go To where the lights glow Oh small town, you’re bringing me down Please just let me go To where the lights glow Oh small town, someday I will leave you And I will be free to Go where I am loved Go where I am loved Go where we are loved Go where we are loved Go where I am loved Go where we are loved Go where I am loved Go where I am loved Go where we are

I’ve got all these responsibilities People to please, souls to feed Oh oh oh I've got all these, all these tendencies You're done with me, I'm done with me too Pink and blue skies Are what I'm trying to find Don't you try and stop me now Paper and pen, all over again Writing myself into the ground The evening always dwindles on When I'm finding my way back home I always find it funny how No one ever knows I was gone I say I love to take them on But I never carry through The prettiest songs aren't about me They're always about you I’ve got all these responsibilities People to please, souls to feed Oh oh oh I've got all these, all these tendencies You're done with me, I'm done with me too Aren't you glad I Tried my hardest this time I know you like it when I do Lost all those nights No one's as tired as I Why do I do this to myself? I say I love to fight the fight But I care too much for you You ask me to stay a little while But there's some things I cannot do I say I love to take them on But I never carry through The prettiest songs aren't about me They're always about you I’ve got all these responsibilities People to please, souls to feed Oh oh oh I've got all these, all these tendencies You're done with me, I'm done with me too Flaws, flaws, flaws We are flawed to no end Words, words, words Do we ever really say I can't refine my heart's design To be what I'm not meant to Diamonds only shine in the light My best will just have to do I can't refine my heart's design Diamonds only shine in the light I can't refine my heart's design Diamonds only shine in the light I’ve got all these responsibilities People to please, souls to feed Oh oh oh I've got all these, all these tendencies You're done with me, I'm done with me too

You have many faces, you have many names I left you behind, you left a trace I feel the weight of you, it’s all around Must be something in the water The things you dreamed of were in your hand All you needed to do was grab them I want you to know this isn't a love song I like to call this a remember-to-forget-song I hope somebody gets you what you need That somebody can never be me Lost girl, find home They love you, you know I can't be the one who saves you Wild sea, small boat I’ve got to let go This heart will never be your home I tried to open, you pushed me down Must be drowning, sinking faster All your twisted words are a tired sound I know its hard when you’re under The things you dreamed of were in your hand All you needed to do was grab them I want you to know this isn't a love song I like to call this a remember-to-forget-song I hope somebody gets you what you need That somebody can never be me Lost girl, find home They love you, you know I can't be the one who saves you Wild sea, small boat I’ve got to let go This heart will never be your home You've made yourself a princess, a damsel in distress But you won't let anyone let you down If you want to be saved, let yourself be saved But you won't let anyone let you down I want you to know this isn't a love song I like to call this a remember-to-forget-song I hope somebody gets you what you need, That somebody can never be me Oh, lost girl, find home They love you, you know I can't be the one who saves you Wild sea, small boat I’ve got to let go This heart will never be your home
