lyrics

He took a shot before He got on the subway
His oldest mate was celebrating his birthday
He’d been awkward recluse for 37 days to date

He cut out hanging with those suckers on purpose
They thought he was being scared and nervous
But his skin’s so thick that a Cutco knife would be dulled

Called into question his participation
Thought he’d deflate the joyous celebration
But he’d heed his mother’s words and he’d don that Claire Huxtable smile

He stuck around until they cut through the ice cream cake
Made up a tale, he had to run or he’d be late
To some made up gig on the west side or was it uptown? Forget it, then Timmy said,

You don’t have to be the person you think I think you are
For your voice is like a holiday

Sat on a bus and rubbed her hands with lotion
She’s going backwards despite forward motion
To a boneyard, a memory, a boarded up seafront home

She packed a bag with only her necessities
Gave up her cosmetics and cut-off jeans
Cuz there’s work there where she’s heading and a thrift store to purchase more

She sent a message with a trusted messenger
Put on an air of love and clothed her anger
She would be the better person and make off with only dust in her wake

Her grandma told she could hold down a straight job
Put down the paint brush and quit being an art snob
That she was shooting in the dark with no bullets and no target
Then Jenny said
You don’t have to be the person you think I think you are
For your voice is like a holiday
