"How People Are" as written by and Amy Rigby....
You shouldn't be allowed

To walk around out there in the world

Where everyone can see your face

They shouldn't be permitted to lay eyes on you

I wish that I could keep you locked up safe inside

Cause you're too good to share

A precious thing I wanna hide



What scares me the most is not how you are

What scares me the most is how people are

Selfish and searching for someone like you

Watching and waiting for two in love to screw it up



They say that the stars

Protect trusting hearts I'm not sure

When all around the evidence

Would suggest the opposite, it's a tragedy

When we should be out walking underneath the sun

But there's no telling who we'd see

It could be anyone



What scares me the most

Is not how you are

What scares me the most

Is how people are

Drifting and dreaming of someone like you

Lonely and looking for two in love to screw it up



I can't believe how perfect you are, I'm meant for you

I can't believe how jealous I am of anyone you ever knew

There was a time I thought we were free fromf worrying

Now we both know that's no way to be

We can't relax

We watch our backs



What scares me the most

Is not how you are

What scares me the most

Is how people are
