Used to Be

by NicoleK

Just a song a wrote a few years ago after having my heart broken by a stupid boy…I was reminiscing on what it was like when I had the creativity to write, and it felt good to play. This recording is rough, and I messed up obviously a few times, but doing it has helped to curb the pain today.

Sometimes I try too hard
It never gets me very far
And this whole darn world could stop
And I’d never know
‘Cause I’m watching you go
And I don’t wanna settle back down
Into being by myself
‘Cause this whole darn world would forget
Like I was never here
I just wanna be real

It seems the wind’s picked up
And carried away what I love
Oh, I tried so hard to hold on
But what’s the use
You’re gone, and that’s nothing new

Well, I used to be uncomfortable
With everything I was
And it cut me deep that you were too
It used to be so wonderful
With the world in front of us
And it cuts me deep that you don’t agree
Is it really that bad to be me?

And I’m not sure who I am
Or where it is that I stand
But I know that I’m a little less you
And a lot more me
Whatever that may mean
Some people that I trust
Will leave me in the dust
But I know that they’re just scared
Just like I’ll always be
I can’t blame them for being like me

I think of Butters from South Park when someone uses the word ‘darn’. It’s like you wanted to use the word ‘damn’, but that’s too harsh so you went with the lite version. It’s like the Diet Coke version of the word damn.
