4. Fool

I tell myself    
not to be a fool
It comes so naturally to me
It’s all I’ll ever be

I tell myself      
To grow up, get serious  
And all i want to be
Is an animal that’s free 

I tell myself     
It’s not safe in my head   
And that’s where I'm gonna be
every day until I’m dead 

i tell myself
come on and hit the big score  
I only get myself banged up
when i think I'm needing more 

there’s a little girl sitting in the back seat
watching me everyday
i’m trying to listen to what she tells me  
She knows that i am afraid
Then She says
go do it anyway

I tell myself
I’m not good, not good enough
now i’m studying up
How not to treat me so rough

I'll tell myself
just about anything  
but I don’t have to believe
everything I say to me

there’s a little girl sitting in the back seat
she really knows how to play
i’m trying to listen to what she tells me  
To show my love i’m afraid  
and then she says   
go do it anyway
go do it anyway
go do it anyway
