I got my feet on the ground but I know where my heart is
Writing a song doesn't make me an artist
Try'na get somewhere, trying my hardest
Song went out and I haven't even started yet
I've got so much to do but I'm too tired to put on my shoes
And walk to the next stop in jeans and a vest top
With last night's pizza that I'll eat the rest of

Friend of a friend that I met and I hated
Unfortunately, he thought he was amazing
You and me minus your V.I.P means you've got a fatter wallet
But we're pretty much the same thing
I admit that I could look fitter
I might get jealous but I'll never be a quitter

Stumble on your heels, while I do up my shoelace
I might be a bitch but I'll never be two-faced
Say what I want and do what I do
I have my own friends and they hate you too
You have to give respect to get respect
Crawling back under your rock is your best bet

And if you got something interesting
That's worth me listening, come say it to me
But if you can't be nice then shut your mouth
I'll drift away and chase my paper dreams

'Cause I'll never be the person that everyone else wants me to be

I got my hands in the air but I'm still dreaming
I'm half lazy, half human-being
It's hard to think when your brain's on the ceiling
I might do the robot but I've got feelings, yes
I've got so much to say, followed the path but I went the wrong way
That's what happens when you let your mind wander
I might look fine but my head's going under

Pretty sure I've got somewhere to be
But I'll just relax and let the traffic flow past me
I've been told that the way I roll
Is inside the lines but out of control
Pretty sure you'll agree with me
Even if I look stupid, I'm pretty happy
If you're having fun, don't care what you look like
As long as you're smiling then you got the game right

And if you got something interesting
That's worth me listening, come say it to me
But if you can't be nice then shut your mouth
I'll drift away and chase my paper dreams

'Cause I'll never be the person that everyone else wants me to be

I got my feet on the ground but I know where my heart is
Writing a song doesn't make me an artist
Try'na get somewhere, trying my hardest
Song went out and I haven't even started yet
