​Can I Just Be Myself?

This song is by Red Herring and appears on the album The Sooner You Accept It (2006).

Wonder what you're thinkin'
While I ramble,
And I'm weak in the knees
Everytime,
I drop some stupid line,
'Bout "How's the weather?" and that.

Feelin' smaller than
The talk I'm dealin',
And I can't stop to breathe and relax.
And take the time to ask,
The real question on my mind.

Can I just be myself?
I know you couldn't
Tell right now,
I don't wanna be just friends.

Don't mean to think this
Through,
So much it's just that
You're so perfect
A mistake might break the trend.

Lookin' for a way,
An in,
A place to park
My intentional device
To get you to realize
I wanna know what's
Behind those eyes.

My sense ain't
Strictly Biblical,
In fact it's quite emotional,
Although I wouldn't mind
A bit of that physical, but
Let's start with,
Some lunch,
Some time.



Can I just be myself?
I know you couldn't
Tell right now,
I don't wanna be just friends.

Don't mean to think this
Through,
So much it's just that
You're so perfect
A mistake might break the trend.

I ain't much
For games of chance,
And this one seems
The most to make me dance,
Around The Punchline!

And isn't it ironic,
How being so platonic,
Always screws me over.

Bottom of the ninth,
Gotta clear the wall.
But you can't hit a homer,
If you ain't got no balls.

So here it comes,
Take a swing,
Roll the dice,
And I think this time
That it just might work out.

Let's find out.

This time,
This time,
I think this time that
It just might work out.

This time,
This time,
I think this time that
It just might work out.

This time,
This time,
I think this time that
It just might work out.
