lyrics

Finding a way in the world,
hoping that, someday, I'll get the girl,
and the job and the fame I've always felt I was owed.

Worked all my life to carve a space,
that fits my form, to have a place,
where I could be praised for reaping the seeds I've sowed

But for the first time,
that's not my concern.
I'm resolved to know,
I'm never getting my turn.

I was appealing to my vanity,
But now, I think, I finally see.
For the first time, I'm free to just be me,

I had a dream, and chased it,
but all that time was wasted.
And now I leave it behind to start from scratch.

But I didn't quit, I fought.
It was never quite what I thought.
No matter how hard I tried, I can't make a match.

But for the first time,
I don't even care.
I've spent enough time,
just pulling out my hair.

I was appealing to my vanity,
But now, I think, I finally see.
For the first time, I'm free to just be me,

Yeah, for the first time,
I'm not even concerned.
I'm resolved to know,
I'm never getting my turn.

I was appealing to my vanity,
But now, I think, I finally see.
For the first time, I'm free to just be me.
