Here for now

I bet you’re wondering if you woke up today
just to learn why the caged bird sings
I bet you’re wondering if the goddesses are all crazy,
or just keeping it interesting.
Situated slightly outside society
at odds with its odd offerings,
I bet you’re teetering on the edge of sobriety,
just to alleviate a few things —

like the fear that you’re standing here
’cause you want to be liked —
yes, you know you need your instrument,
but does your instrument need to be miked?

And you keep imagining that pretty soon you will just disappear.
And thinking that one thing is what saves you from your fear of being here

Here for now,
you’re here for now
you’re here for now.

I bet you’re looking for the little red x next to the red arrow
and the words ‘you are here’,
I bet you’re hoping that your heart will send up
the white flag this time, or some sign that the coast is clear.
Yeah the moment when your heart jumps —
it’s all that’s happening
and once again it’s like the first time you’ve felt that shock;
Yeah the moment when your heart jumps —
it’s all that’s happening,
And I was right behind the door when you knocked…

Thinking maybe I’m just standing here
’cause I want to be liked;
yes, I know I need my instrument,
but does my instrument need to be miked?

and I keep imagining
That pretty soon I will just disappear
And thinking that one thing
is what saves me from my fear of being here

Here for now
I’m here for now,
I’m here for now.
