  • I ain't afraid though my steps appear tentative
    I scope it out then I throw myself into it
    I ain't ashamed in the fact that I'm sensitive
    I believe that it is the perfect adjective
    I wear my feelings on my sleeve, I suggested it
    It serves me better than to swallow in a sedative
    I am what I am and I'm good at it
    And you don't like me well that isn't fucking relevant

    Don't call me mad
    There's a difference, I'm angry
    And your choice to call me cute has offended me
    I have power, there are people who depend on me
    And even you have time you wish to spend on me
    And now you all think I'm unhinged
    But wind it up and this honeybee stings
    Did you think I was a puppet on strings?
    Wind her up and this honeybee sings

    Ah, ah, ah, ah, sun and the shine
    Ah, ah, ah, ah, smile
    Ah, ah, ah, ah, sun and the shine

    If you want me you can find me at the bar
    Lost souls congregate at the bar
    Take a minute and remember who you are
    Sip your drink, sip one more and you're a star

    Ah, ah, ah, ah, sun and the shine
    Ah, ah, ah, ah, smile
    Ah, ah, ah, ah, sun and the shine
    Ah, ah, ah, ah, smile
    Ah, ah, ah, ah
