lyrics

i was born in a hellish suburban town
on the outskirts of albany
where my grandparents still live now
i didnt know it but my fate was sealed
sitting cross-legged in our family room while pop played that 6 string steel
guess i always was the melancholic type
i dont have fun in games, cant dance cause im too uptight
if i dont learn to loosen up right
how am i to sleep at night
mama says
darling
sweetheart
just calm down
youll grow up
sometimes
youll find
it just takes time
to feel fine
are the flowers in my voice enough to make it real
the love i so ubiquitously feel
you must know by now
sometimes its like the only hands on my wheel
arent mine somehow
papa told me thered be days of bliss
then thered be days when you wake up thinkin nothing could be worse than this
papa told me and i guess he was right
he said the only thing to do is to get on your feet and fight
thank the lord for the friends i have at home
thank the lord for the lovers that have made me grow
and thank the lord for the love so often shown
in the family rooms ive come to know
mama says
darling
sweetheart
just calm down
youll grow up
sometimes
youll find
it just takes time
to feel fine
are the flowers in my voice enough to make it real
the love i so ubiquitously feel
you must know by now
sometimes its like the only hands on my wheel
arent mine somehow
