I try to always be a gentleman.
I try to always be a better friend.
Lately, I've been feeling half a man;
Like maybe I should be more who I am.
Maybe I should fuck something up good,
Or maybe I should act like someone bad.
I try to live my life like David does,
But something always feels just slightly off.

I'm young and maybe that's why days, to me,
They seem like opportunities to test my reach:
Adopt some ugly habits that are bad for me and
Treat some others not-so-equally.
If I thought I knew me, well, it's clear as can be
That things are gonna change like a hundred degrees.

If I thought I knew me, well, it's plain to see
That things are gonna change like a hundred degrees.

Don't tell my mother.
Don't tell my mother till I pull myself together.
It's undercover --
I hope forever.
Don't tell my mother till I pull myself together.
I think it's me, but I
Just need to see
If this is real or just something that I need.

Try to always do what people like
And try to be the man that someone might
Look up to in a minute when they're feeling down,
Like maybe I could be somebody that you love.
Or maybe I'll just keep thinking all about me
Until I get the proper opportunity that I need.
Maybe I'll just keep thinking all of myself
Until I find a way to be in love with somebody else.
