I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

June ? 2009

not sure of the exact day… although w/dedicated perseverance could nail it (is the super-bowl-sunday laziness in me. i’m using that as an excuse. i stand corrected… it’s the everyday laziness in me). a great day nonetheless! i do remember this was the last pic jeff snapped out of hundreds… and, i also remember him (he reminded me of animal from lou grant) telling me, how much he loved this pic, said it resonated our effort and accomplishment… our culmination after two hours in front of the lens. truthfully, for years, i never was much a fan of it. now, seven-and-a-half years later… i’m warming up to it!

Yo I’ll be over here

I’m sorry if I seem uninterested
Or I’m not listenin’ or I’m indifferent
Truly, I ain’t got no business here
But since my friends are here
I just came to kick it but really
I would rather be at home all by myself not in this room
With people who don’t even care about my well-being
I don’t dance, don’t ask, I don’t need a boyfriend
So you can go back, please enjoy your party
I’ll be here, somewhere in the corner under clouds of marijuana
With this boy who’s hollering I can hardly hear
Over this music I don’t listen to and I don’t wanna get with you
So tell my friends that I’ll be over here

Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here oh oh oh
I ask myself what am I doing here?
Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here
And I can’t wait till we can break up outta here

Excuse me if I seem a little unimpressed with this
An anti-social pessimist but usually I don’t mess with this
And I know you mean only the best and
Your intentions aren’t to bother me
But honestly I’d rather be
Somewhere with my people we can kick it and just listen
To some music with the message (like we usually do)
And we’ll discuss our big dreams
How we plan to take over the planet
So pardon my manners, I hope you’ll understand it
That I’ll be here
Not there in the kitchen with the girl
Who’s always gossiping about her friends
So tell them I’ll be here
Right next to the boy who’s throwing up ’cause
He can’t take what’s in his cup no more
Oh God why am I here?

Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here oh oh oh
I ask myself what am I doing here?
Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here
And I can’t wait till we can break up outta here

Hours later congregating next to the refrigerator
Some girl’s talking ’bout her haters
She ain’t got none
How did it ever come to this
I shoulda never come to this
So holla at me I’ll be in the car when you’re done
I’m standoffish, don’t want what you’re offering
And I’m done talking
Awfully sad it had to be that way
So tell my people when they’re ready that I’m ready
And I’m standing by the TV with my beanie low
Yo I’ll be over here

someday soon and I don’t know when your little world will come crashing in

don’t think twice say I’ll be around turn your back someone’s gonna let you down
you know that it’s true nobody led you on left that to you
now you’ll be alone when the sun comes up
your tattered little dreams and a broken cup
then you’ll have to trust yourself and don’t believe in anymore lies
you waste your time think too much really make a mess of the things you touch
poor little bird with a broken wing
better look around now you know your losing everything it’s just a game
thought you had it all lined up somehow that’s changed
now you’ll have to run and not get caught
and you’ll have to hide if you like it or not
then you’ll have to trust yourself and don’t believe in anymore liessomeday soon it won’t be long you’ll ring the bell but they’ll all be gone
they took your jewels and your statues too
left you with a pile of things you never learned how to use here it comes again
you showed us where it all began well here’s where it endsand you’ll be alone when the sun comes up tattered little dreams and a broken cup
then you’ll have to trust yourself and don’t believe in anymore
trust yourself and don’t believe in anymore
trust yourself and don’t believe in anymore lies
yeah yeah yeah
yeah yeah yeah
yeah yeah yeah

Who’s the one that makes you happy?

Or maybe, who’s the one always on your mind?
And who is the reason you’re living for?
Who’s the reason for your smile?

Everyone needs somebody.
And you know, everybody needs someone.
Well and yes it’s true!
Everybody needs a special kind of love.
And you’re the only one I’m thinking of.
You mean the world to me.
You are my only!

It’s not whatcha got it’s what you give.
It ain’t the life you choose it’s the life you live.
It’s only what you give, only what you give, only what you give,
It’s not whatcha got, a but the life you live.
It’s the life you live.

Going crazy outta my head, going crazy,
Outta my head.
