Track Name: Ripples
First of all let me apologise
I took everything so seriously
I should have been having fun, able to laugh it off
Instead I mistook humour for spite.

Caught in the I of my brittle ego
I didn't feel I could hold my own
Feeling insecure, while you were popular
I think that is why I took your words to heart.

You must have been laughing and shaking your head
wondering aloud what my problem was
I wanted encouragement, not outright abolishment
it seems you can't even get the things you need.

Small ripples make big waves
The jab of a finger
it felt like a punch

You put yourself out there
opinions will flow

Thank you sincerely
No really
thank you sincerely
because at one point I nearly let this consume me
swallow me whole
bury me deep
bury me beneath
a huge slab of embarrassment

You put yourself out there
opinions will flow

Now I know
I have worth
I am worthy

Small ripples make big waves
The jab of a finger
it felt like a punch
