lyrics

At school I hated having to go in front of the class
To give a speech or presentation
I hated being the focus, having all eyes on me
Nothing worse than being the center of attention

I'd lay awake at night, fearful of the future
Imagining high school graduation, walking across the stage
To receive my diploma, or even further ahead, getting married,
Walking the aisle, saying my vows... never wanted to reach that age

I hated sports, especially team sports
Like basketball or volleyball
That required me to catch or bump the ball - I'd screw up
And ruin the play, it was all my fault

But then I got a bass guitar and started to play in my room
Then the bluegrass lady asked me to play along at church
I was really nervous, but it felt safe enough,
On bass, even when I was up front, I could be in the back

Then I started a band with some friends,
We got a few gigs, starting small, then bigger crowds
It still makes me nervous, but I can handle it now
Just need to take it easy after, find space to cool down
