Derek - Because


Because

i used to be the type of kid who would find joy in all things

but somewhere along the way i became the type of kid who’d always think the sky’s falling

and i'd wonder why i was so differently wired, why i never seemed to fit in

finding belonging’s kinda hard when everyone’s always frontin

always stuntin like they’ve got something to prove

but maybe that's why everybody acts a fool

and just to be honest with you, i’ll include myself in that too

cos hiding’s child’s play, and I’m just another actor who got good at smiling every day

Because

i used to be the type of kid who’d always think the sky’s falling

kinda hard not to when shit never seems to stop happening

but men can’t talk, so we just smile and wave

just remember people don’t fake depression, but it’s easy to fake being okay

so all i can say is please forgive me for having contemplated being gone one day

Because

I used to be the type of kid who’d always think the sky’s falling

and I’m only just now realising that being differently wired’s awesome

that the best part about me is I am not you

I’m me

one of a kind in a full house, you see

it might still be a mess, but there’s finally room for life

who might be bit of a b*tch, but she’s kinda becoming my type

and even her flaws are starting to look gorgeous

so f*ck raging against the dying of the light

I’m the type of kid who can make my own,

here let me show you, I promise it’s a beautiful sight.
