history repeating

in childhood i was often quiet
they told me i was patient - good
as gold, teacher's pet, the prof, swat
honestly i didn't know my standards
like Ginger Rogers equipped for going back
i had to take the lead, Miss without her heels
but is it even this, i just don't know
now like a shy one's self corrected coping
i overdo it spontaneous and brash
injured by every quick allusion
my tongue clicks to bring consideration back

my tongue clicks to bring consideration back
injured by every quick allusion
i overdo it spontaneous and brash
now like a shy one's self corrected coping
but is it even this, i just don't know
i had to take the lead, Miss without her heels
like Ginger Rogers equipped for going back
honestly i didn't know my standards
as gold, teacher's pet, the prof, swat
they told me I was patient - good
in childhood i was often quiet
