Me Lyrics

Artist: Atmosphere
Album: When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold

yeah, the child in the mirror was homely?
so he learned early on
how to switch into low key.
little person,
observant and accurate.
glued the skills to argue
and the passion to back it with
kick over the blocks just to re-build them.
cause mom and pop used to pop
(sound familiar?)
daddy had to leave,but mommy kept hurtin
so he stepped up to help be an anchor and a burden.
and right around the same time
he started noticing girls,
but they wouldnt pay him any mind,
and if they ever did,he got nervous.
you should've seen him practice on his hands
for his first kiss,
even though he was too young to hunt and gather,
hungry puppy had to learn how to front and swagger.
it didnt matter,it was all self-esteem,
at sixteen, you only needed one on your team.

and mom and dad was never gettin back together,
so he was on some "baby, we gonna make it last forever."
basically married, right out of high school.
five years of getting high and fighting at a drive thru.
and when he hit 21 they made a son,
but on his 22nd birthday, their relationship was done,
now hes got a best friend, (instead of a wife.)
but he feels like he stole the best years of her life.
after that,
it was one co-dependant to the next.
alot of love, alot of hate,
and a little bit of great sex.
self-learning in between the self-loathing,
strangled in a cycle,
cant feel yourself choking.

some of them would over-lap,
some of them would double back,
none of them deserved to be exposed,
to all the trouble he posed.
strike one, not even out of fear.
he dont even do rough set?
you bite him and he's out of here.
make no mistake,
he put the MAN in MANipulate
and he's attracted to the woman that reciprocate.
ya'll can kick karma till its getting late,
until mamas little drama is the topic of the big debate.
and now adays the confidence is off the page
cause women are attracted to the clown on the stage,
he's only in town for a handful hours,
but rapunzel wants to come down,
and dance in the flowers.

wanna make you smile,
wanna make you laugh,
wanna make up for the mistakes in the past.

wanna act like he doesnt know better,
if paybacks a bitch,
he'll be in debt forever.
insecure, impatient
temporary radification, self-validation
thats what its made of,
its all true,
and its the only reason he's even talking to you.

(x's 4)
you can try to fix my broken wings,
you can know all the words to the songs that i sing.
but you dont need to know whats wrong with me
unless you think you're gonna come home with me.

(....woman singing)
