"Nervous and Weird" as written by and Scott Cuthbert Art Alexakis....
You know I want to be the way you want me to
Big hearted and tall enough to cover you
I would break in half if you said it out loud
Splinter out of myself just like mercury
I think it's better now than how it used to be
You were lying in bed and I would levitate
I think it's better here than where we used to be
I wish I could go out into the Oregon sun to be alive in the day
I would smile at everyone

I remember you back in '83 you were dressing insane
You were my everything you were so different from all those other
girls

A blind Electra in drag so cool and casually lame
I think I'm better now than how I used to be
Always nervous and weird, scared most of the time
I think it's better now than how it used to be
Always up in the night afraid to live in the day

Afraid of being afraid
Afraid to live in the day
Afraid of being afraid

Now I sit alone when you're not around
I read aloud just to hear a friendly voice
I see you scary dolls they always look at me
From the corner of my eyes I see them shake their heads

You know I want to be the way you me to
Big hearted and tall enough to cover you
You know I want to be the way you me to
I wish I could go out just to be alive in the day
To be alive in the day

    General CommentThis song has always seemed very desperate, about a failed relationship where he or someone he knew put everything on the table, only to have it drive them close to insanity

    General CommentI love Everclear's early work beacuse it was so raw and I always felt like I could have written some of the songs, I mean they really struck a personal cord with me.

    First, the line: Big hearted and tall enough to cover you-

    Who of us hasn't longed for someone like that to give us relief from all of the stress of this life and give us security? Someone to take the pressure of the world off of your shoulders and put the weight on theirs and at the same time actually be able to hold that weight while you took a breath.

    Second, I love the verse about the Oregon sun, which only shines 3 months of the year and that fact makes it all the more special to see that good ole oregon sunshine.
