lyrics

Bring me to my knees again. Lift my chin. I’m glad I’m not an orphan anymore. Weary me. When it was time to be free, I hid and I lost you. I’d fight for me, but I’m asleep. You found me on the roadside crying, I thought that it was dying. And me, you could make me clean. You would bring relief and redeem all the things that I’ve done.

But I’m bigger. I’m bigger than I used to be.
I’m bigger than I’d let myself believe.

You be the one that all the skinny kids refuse to play with. You be the one that shows them who they never want to be. You be the one and carry on and carry on and carry on and wait for real life to finally come along. Time brings her to mind. It’s a chasm, and he’s not who he needs to be. What he wants and what he wishes, and the space between. I’d fight for me, but I’m asleep. You found me on the roadside crying, I thought that it was dying. And me, you could make me clean. You would bring relief and redeem all the things that I’ve done.

But I’m bigger. I’m bigger than I used to be.
I’m bigger than I’d let myself believe.

Hello there. I'm called Slightly. I make what many call "Rock and Roll," and one man inexplicably called "Neo-Ecclectic Bimodal Chip Talk." If you are reading this, odds are you are a close friend or my mother. And that's okay. I'm no big deal.

Enjoy.
