I’ve not been satisfied
It’s been that way forever
Though I seem to have it all in my hands

And the strangest thing about it
Is I’ve never felt this distance
When it was so far away

Now here I go
Downsizing myself again

It’s that fear of being big
It’s that fear of over-showing
Fear of letting down
It’s that fear of being boring
Sabotage happy endings
All too good to be true
Damaging awkwardness
In fear of what you can do

You can drive me off
At the next inception
Though I need to walk from here
And do not disturb me as I’m stuck in the state
Of fitting rectangles in a hole

Now here I go
Selling myself short again

It’s that fear of being big
It’s that fear of over-showing
Fear of letting down
It’s that fear of being boring
Sabotage happy endings
All too good to be true
Damaging awkwardness
In fear of what you can do

Oh I need to lie down
Til the fear of the unknown is gone
I said I need to lie down
Til the fear of the unknown is gone tonight

It’s that fear of being big
It’s that fear of over-showing
Fear of letting down
It’s that fear of being boring
Sabotage happy endings
All too good to be true
Damaging awkwardness
In fear of what you can do
