Here for Now
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
