  • Lyrics
  • Cody Simpson penned this song about a bee that he saw flying around in Malibu and wondered what it would be like if he were one of the buzzing insects? "If I was a bee maybe I could see things from a better perspective or something - being able to... be a bee would be kind of cool," he told MTV News. "It's just a really cool conscious message and I was psyched on it. It was silly to me at first and then I turned it into something that could be on the album."
