Description

hey. thanks for being you. this was written in an afternoon, i guess one where i was frustrated with the complexity of navigating relationships--particularly the mind games, miscommunication, and waiting for answers. maybe you can relate. or maybe not, but you dig the ukulele. if not, no worries. there probably isn't much of this song left for you to like in that scenario, but we can still be friends.

"Polite"

don’t tell me what you think i want to hear

honestly your honesty is all i need from you

though i fear i’ve got the answers

the script in hand pre-programmed

all my stories end the same

maybe you’re different than all of my dreams

that leave me standing alone on this street

i’m fine by myself don’t need anyone else

sure sometimes its lonely

but if i’m not your type

please don’t be polite

just tell me to leave

i used to be afraid

of tasting

the bittersweet of love

and losing it again

i stayed inside

kept my heart alive

and cards close to my skin

but I lived to sing about it

i’ll push aside my doubt

and take a chance on you

maybe you’re different than all of my dreams

that leave me standing alone on this street

i’m fine by myself don’t need anyone else

given time I’ll be ok

but if i’m not your type

please don’t be polite

just tell me to leave

i’m falling asleep with too many questions to sort

wondering what’s really going on in your thoughts

though i’m prepared for whatever will be

it only ever seems to be time to wait

and wait and wait

and wait, and wait, wait

there’s always next year

maybe you’re different than all of my dreams

that leave me standing alone on this street

i’m fine by myself don’t need anyone else

sure sometimes it’s lonely

but if i’m not your type

please don’t be polite

just tell me to leave

maybe you’re different than all of my dreams

that leave me standing alone on this street

here at your side it wouldn’t be a lie

to say i want to remain

on the chance your type

please don’t be polite

just tell me i’d better stay

on the chance i’m your type

please don’t be polite

just tell me i’d better stay
