 Become A Better Singer In Only 30 Days, With Easy Video Lessons!

I bet you're wondering 
If you woke up today 
Just to learn why the caged bird sings 
I bet you're wondering if the goddesses are all crazy 
Or just keeping it interesting 
Situated slightly outside society 
At odds with its odd offerings 
I bet you're teetering on the edge of sobriety 
Just to alleviate a few things

Like the fear that you're standing here 
'cause you want to be liked 
You know you need your instrument 
But does your instrument need to be miked? 

You keep imagining 
That pretty soon you will just disappear 
And thinking that one thing 
Is what saves you from your fear of being here 
Here for now 
Here for now 
Here for now

I bet you're looking for the little red x 
Next to the red arrow 
And the words 'you are here' 
I bet you're hoping that your heart will send up 
The white flag this time 
Or some sign that the coast is clear 
Yeah the moment when your heart jumps 
It's all that's happening 
And once again 
It's like the first time you've felt that shock 
Yeah the moment when your heart jumps 
It's all that's happening 
And I was right behind the door when you knocked 

Thinking maybe I'm just standing here 
'cause I want to be liked 
I know I need my instrument 
But does my instrument need to be miked? 

I keep imagining 
That pretty soon I will just disappear 
And thinking that one thing 
Is what saves me from my fear of being here 
Here for now 
Here for now 
Here for now
