Don't try and sound right, just hope your honest
Trust you'll end up somewhere
That girl that made you promise
she says "try not to care"
I don't know if I'm good, and everyone knows it
You ever feel you were meant to be alone?
Because I saw a play and and a character said
that he was destined to never feel at home
Don't go tonight, I'm looking for salt in a snow globe
Because what I had is slipping fast.
Dr. Howe, Please call back
I'm not sleeping in, I don't care
I'm singing loud but no one hears
I'll wake up tomorrow and still feel wrong for these days
What I had is slipping fast
Dr. Howe Please call me back.
What good am I to anyone like this?
It's been a hard couple months I'll admit
After tonight I'm not so convinced that I'm wrong
I feel at ease with my lows, and I'll take it.
Lord knows I'll take it.
Tonight they're explainable, far from extraneous.
Always expectant
I seldom discover or turn flaws into questions.
Great questions of the times.
I guess I'm an artist who's confines brought him luck choked by second guessing
I know that's not enough.

    General CommentHes look for salt in a snow globe, what he had is slipping fast. That could mean a lot of things, but its easy to find something in your own life that it fits into. Thats why its a good song. I like how he says " I guess Im an artist, whose confines brought him luck, chocked by second guessing." I take this to mean, he supposes his songwriting and singing, makes him someone who is popularly thought of as an artist eventhough hes just some guy, and the confines of his ability have brought him luck, meaning that the fact that he cant just create songs of any genre and style have lead him to make songs such as his own but that has brought him luck, as people like the songs he and the rest of PBC have written, even though he is always second guessing whether or not what he writes is good or not. ( im just speculating, it sounds good thouigh right?) but he 'know[s] thats not enough." nothing ever is.
