lyrics

Hey you, quit moving!
Can't you ever stay still?
Have you nothing better to do?
Why don't you take a CHILL PILL?
(Legs and lungs, In the spirit of having fun
Turn around and count to 10. I'll be 1)

Hi Mum, I'm living
But I'm lonely up here
Hey Dad, I'm doing my best
Got all my energy in fear
(Keep in touch. Am I good? Not good enough?
(At saying all the things you wanna hear)

Dear friends
I am not who you think I am
Dear friends
I am not who you think I am
(I'm sailing at sea, helplessly downstream
I'm not happy where I am)

One day I'll find where I belong
One day I'll find where I belong
(Cruising upstream on a boat fit for a queen
To a lake where I can swim
I'll be king)

I know I know I know
I know what you're thinking
I know I know I know
I know what you're thinking
(I'm a a little bit washed out, a prisoner of doubt
I'm sorry all my efforts are in vain)

Listen, I love you
A little more each day
I worry that I'll come home one night
And I'll find you not breathing
(I'll seal my love in a time capsule of us
Send it into space for the future)

One day I'll find where I belong
One day I'll find where I belong
(Cruising upstream on a boat fit for a queen
To a lake where I can swim
I'll be king... I'll be king)
