It's been a long 10 years. Kinda thought I'd be further, never thought I'd be here. And the funnier thing, In spite of the ambitions me I think, you know, I kinda think that it's good. And now you're calling me crazy, but I think that it's good. I think that it's as it should be. It is...

Though I'm much more than this. I'm not on a world tour. You don't hear me through the airwaves, but I'm feeling better in my own skin. It don't take much to scare me, but I'm ditching these pills, and I'm hitching that ride, and I'll forfeit these blues, and I'm boarding that flight, cause it found me to you.

It's been a long ride home, ever since I saw lighting crash outside the window. And then I look at the children, and the fear in their eyes. I know I should tell my family, so they know I'm alright. You see it's complicated, but I only see you. And I told her I made it, told her what I been through. Cause I told you I would, so I did...

But god damn all of this. Cause I'm not in the papers. I'm not on the radio, and it took me all this time just to feel good in my skin. And I'm telling the truth. I was much more than they thought all of those years ago and now I'm here. It don't take much to scare me, but I said fuck those pills. So ready or not. I'm hitching that ride, and I'll fly through the storm, and I'll fight with these blues. I can't regret this life, cause it found me to you, to you.

and I'm feeling better in my own skin.
