Stepped On Another Crack

Pretend to like what they like
Pretend to see what they agree
Pretend to be what I'm not
Can't wait to be alone with myself
So I can be free

Off beat
Trip over my feet
I stepped on another crack today
I say hay
Couldn't help it
Sometimes I escape myself
And if we all did
We might be surprised what we be
We might discover we really like ourself
No matter what the others see

Pretending not to want
Pretending not to notice
Pretending not to be

I shared a fantasy
Against the fence it flew
And got wrecked
And if the fence only knew
How true

Off beat
Trip over your feet
I walk to the beat of no drummer
Isn't it a bummer
Couldn't help it
Just me being free
And if we all were
We might find how special we are
We might discover the likeness of ourself
No matter what anybody says
