My Weird

Feat. Tyler Miller

TYE:
I KNOW YOU THINK YOU KNOW ME
AND I’VE SHARED ALL MY SECRETS WITH YOU
MY CURLS AND KINKS
SO TWISTED
SO FREAKISHLY WILD AND COOL

I’M NOT SOME TEEN CLICHÉ
I’M A SAPPHIRE SILVER AND BLUE
MY SMILES AND WINKS
SO SPECIAL
I’M NOT ANOTHER BORING FOOL

I’M OBSESSED WITH DEAD SQUIRRELS
AND I INTERVIEW CATS
AND I HOT-GLUE BLACK PEARLS
TO THE BRIM OF MY BLACK LEATHER HAT

YES YOU LOVE MY QUIRKS
DISGUSTING AND ADORABLE
AND LIKE SOME JERK
I JUST SMILE AND PRETEND THAT’S ALL THERE IS

BUT THAT’S JUST THE BIT THAT I PUT OUT THERE
SO NOBODY REALLY KNOWS WHAT’S WRONG

BECAUSE I’VE GOT A WEIRD
AND I THINK IT MIGHT BE WEIRDER THAN YOURS
AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’D SAY
AFRAID YOU’D RUN AWAY
IF YOU LOOKED INSIDE
AND SAW WHAT I KEEP BURIED HERE
YOU’D BREAK AND CRY
SO I JUST SMILE
AND STAY SILENT
AND PRETEND MY WEIRD IS JUST LIKE YOURS

I KNOW YOU THINK YOU LOVE ME
AND TRUE LOVE WILL CONQUER ALL
AND YOU’LL RIDE IN ON HORSEBACK
MAJESTIC
NOBLE AND SHINING LIKE THE SUN

YOU TRY SO HARD TO GET INSIDE ME
HURLING YOUR KISSES AT THE WALL
THIS ADORING ATTACK
RELENTLESS
AND NOW I’VE GOT NOWHERE TO RUN

YES I’VE BEEN STRUCK BY LIGHTNING
AND I DON’T HAVE A PHONE
AND I’M CRAZY ‘BOUT VIKINGS
AND SOMETIMES I WEAR OLD MEN’S COLOGNE

OH YOU LOVE MY QUIRKS
BEWITCHING AND UNBEARABLE
AND LIKE SOME JERK
I JUST SMILE AND PRETEND THAT’S WHAT I REALLY AM

BUT THAT’S JUST MY OFFBEAT FACADE
AND I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT’S UNDERNEATH

I’VE GOT A WEIRD
AND I THINK IT MIGHT BE WEIRDER THAN YOURS
AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’D DO
AFRAID I’D START TO HATE YOU

IF YOU LOOKED INSIDE
AND SAW WHAT I KEEP BURIED HERE
I’D CRUMBLE AND DIE
SO MORTIFIED

AND I’M NOT READY FOR THAT
MAYBE I’M NOT READY FOR YOU

YOU KNOW I THINK THAT YOU’RE AMAZING
ONE DAY I’LL BE AMAZING TOO

[GRACE takes TYE’s face in her hands. TYE walks away and GRACE sobs]
