Laughing At Myself

Verse, Pre-chorus, Chorus, Bridge

 

‘Laughing At Myself’ lyrics:

I’m laughing at myself
I’m laughing at myself
Ha, Ha, Ha

I used to think there’s no complexity in happy,
Naively thought to fall in love was to give my notice
What would I write if there was no heart break, no more ideas,
Would I tell stories not mine, just to fill the quota?

My music has always been a snapshot of my life,
Of all of my “lives” that you see, my public persona
If I fell in love and lost my edge I’d have no motive
So I block myself off, will the world even notice?

I’m laughing now but also sad, I spent so long
Just avoiding the real thing, guess I got it wrong
Scared I’d give up my career, my fame, and my success
If I couldn’t write as well, numbed by my happiness

So I wouldn’t write at all, because you can’t go back:
If the only way is up, there ain’t no time for that

The beauty of love
It lets you be you
And all along
I never knew
Now I’m laughing at myself
I’m laughing at myself
I guess I’m laughing at myself
I’m laughing at myself
Ha, Ha, Ha

Used to hope that even with love, there would still be some strife
Just enough anger and sadness, to write songs sharp as knives
Cutting with enough velocity, attacking the atrocity
Blank love songs are distractions from our selfish animosity

If all I wanted was my fans to pelt out at the radio
I’d toss my name, I’d chase the fame, and soon become a puppet show
But you’re the only one I just might let pull my strings
Even for you I would not just give up everything

But I don’t have to, that’s the beauty, I’m truly inspired
Tumbling down from an affair, alter, or pedestal
Cannot compare, cannot prepare you for, it’s a whole new level

There’s no heartbreak, but still drama of a different kind
The stuff that everyone on Earth wishes they’ll someday find

So maybe I can speak my truth, include the fact of me and you
And maybe stadiums won’t fill, but I’ll still go in for the kill

The beauty of love
It lets you be you
And all along
I never knew
Now I’m laughing at myself
I’m laughing at myself
I find I’m laughing at myself
I’m laughing at myself
Ha, Ha, Ha
