Late Bloomer / Stuck In The Paper

11/14/2016

I saw this rose today at Palmisano park.

​​Stuck In The Paper

Stuck through it all

Though I’m gonna fall

Wishing I could catch myself

Seems like the choices I pick

Just keep on making me sick

Everything seems bad for my health

What the hell is wrong with me?

Should I chalk it up to being crazy?

I want everything but I just missed the plane

And no one knows even if I explain

Up a creek without a paddle

Got no horse but I got a saddle

Everywhere and you just can’t see me

And someone else might just be me

Its complicated and all related

When I ask for help I get misstated

Misunderstood and it’s never good

Cuz when you say you love me

I don’t know how to take it

I’m stuck in the paper

Cuz I’m so fly

We’ll get up later

It’s a matter of time

Stuck in the paper

Cuz I’m so fly

Maybe I’ll see you later if I’ve got the time

I’m stuck in the paper

Cuz I’m so fly

We’ll get up later

It’s a matter of time

Stuck in the paper

Cuz I’m so fly

Maybe I’ll see you later if I’ve got the time

Try to improve on my look and it don’t work

Can’t convince all these crooks

What my word’s really worth

And when I give them the truth

They just can’t really see

So they dash the vermouth

And they pour me a drink

And when I step off the stage you’ve just got to believe

Theres more to me

Than this image you perceive

I’ts like painting pictures on a canvas

Yet their painting them on me

Yet I’ve got a real side that I need you to see

Up a creek without a paddle

Got no horse but I got a saddle

Everywhere and you just can’t see me

And someone else might just be me

Its complicated and all related

When I ask for help I get misstated

Misunderstood and it’s never good

Cuz when you say you love me

I don’t know how to take it

I’m stuck in the paper

Cuz I’m so fly

We’ll get up later

It’s a matter of time

Stuck in the paper

Cuz I’m so fly

Maybe I’ll see you later if I’ve got the time

I’m stuck in the paper

Cuz I’m so fly

We’ll get up later

It’s a matter of time

Stuck in the paper

Cuz I’m so fly

Maybe I’ll see you later if I’ve got the time

And when I feel like dressing up

Enjoy the show, let it be enough

When I feel like being a character

Straight truth.com that’s really her

I’m stuck in the paper

Cuz I’m so fly

We’ll get up later

It’s a matter of time

Stuck in the paper

Cuz I’m so fly

Maybe I’ll see you later if I’ve got the time

I’m stuck in the paper

Cuz I’m so fly

We’ll get up later

It’s a matter of time

Stuck in the paper

Cuz I’m so fly

Maybe I’ll see you later if I’ve got the time

Better believe I love to

Sing these songs for you

And I can’t give up

It’s just what I do

I said I love to

Sing these songs for you

Send you a letter if I could

Drop email yes I would

But there is no other way

What sets me apart

Is that it comes straight from my heart

Up a creek without a paddle

Got no horse but I got a saddle

Everywhere and you just can’t see me

And someone else might just be me

Its complicated and all related

When I ask for help I get misstated

Misunderstood and it’s never good

Cuz when you say you love me

I don’t know how to take it

I’m stuck in the paper

Cuz I’m so fly

We’ll get up later

It’s a matter of time

Stuck in the paper

Cuz I’m so fly

Maybe I’ll see you later if I’ve got the time

I’m stuck in the paper

Cuz I’m so fly

We’ll get up later

It’s a matter of time

Stuck in the paper

Cuz I’m so fly

Maybe I’ll see you later if I’ve got the time
