-Song for the Liberal Arts band-

Would you look me in the eyes and tell me everything … I am

Touch my face and make me believe that I can

Be exactly what you want …

But I’m not

I’m just fucking not.

When you look me in the eyes

And tell me I’m (pause)

Okay.

Can you really believe the words that …  you say

Cuz I can’t,

No I can’t

Be anything you want

No I’m not, I’m just not

(Chorus)

One day,

just maybe

I’ll see myself as I am

Tuesday, maybe Wednesday

You’ll take me from that

Reflection, my reflection

Kiss me and tell me it’s okay

But it’s not okay

Maybe,

just not lately

Maybe I’ll be okay

Would you look me in the eyes

And tell me

I’m … (Pause) Okay

Hold my face as the tears run down … My face

Maybe one day

Just not today

One day ill see clearly

Just not today

Won’t you take my

Fucking mirrors away

-break-

When you look me in the eyes

Tell me everything

I’m not

Because one day

Just not lately

Because one day

Just not lately

Maybe

I’ll believe you
