Name of Song: Embarrassing moments

Careful to not show my feelings,
Let them show how they feel before I do,
Then I’ll know what to do and won’t make a fool of myself,
It’s too upsetting and so embarrassing the other way.

Now the problem is the other person is thinking similar,
We all seem to all be so worried about about who goes first,
When the standoff festers bright from such shenanigans,
We all try to bow out with that usual fake grin.

Chorus
Complex labyrinths of wonderings,
Thoughts against their grain,
Should I do what comes to mind,
Or should I always do the same.

Incessantly worried about what people will think,
No room for error, no room for kinks;
Making sure I look good, no tolerance for change,
Get with their program, to alter will only bring me shame.

Feelings of wanting to break out into life,
As long as it’s within their rules,
Of how to love and live my life,
And who to do it all with.

Chorus
Complex labyrinths of wonderings,
Thoughts against their grain,
Should I do what comes to mind,
Or should I always do the same.
