lyrics: Anything (star-bellied sneeches)

Anything  (star-bellied sneeches)

Don’t be so negative
you should be how you aren’t
stop doing what you can’t
you won’t prove me wrong
now
I don’t like how I feel
when I think of what I hate
and you’re the one to blame
because I’m obviously not

Did I forget yet             who I wrote this song to
it could be anyone        or absolutely no one

I’ll make you love me     I’ll be your favorite by far
I’ll earn your worship     as my salvation

I’ll get to heaven (soon)  by deserving your attention.
I’d even torture the devil  to win your approval and affection

I’ll be the big hero          who barely saves you from a villain
I’m sure I can find someone to fill in that role
even if unwilling

I needed you to love me
or so I believed
Anything, anything for you
absolutely anything

I wanted you to need me
or so you believed
Anything, anything for me
absolutely anything

Am I guilty                              just as I should be?
Precisely how much shame     is the correct amount?
So is this the best way yet      to agonize almost perfectly
or is there a better form           of always doubting myself?
Now
am I just too skeptical             exactly how you like?
Or is too cynical                     what you have decided
that I should have been then    what I should not ever be?
Star-bellied sneeches             ain’t got nothing on me!

I needed you to love me
or so I believed
Anything, anything for you
absolutely anything

I wanted you to need me
or so you believed
Anything, anything for me
absolutely anything

Don’t be so negative
you should be how you aren’t
stop doing what you can’t
you won’t prove me wrong
now
I don’t like how I feel
when I think of what I choose to hate
and you’re the only one to blame
because I’m obviously right,
don’t you agree?

I needed you to love me
or so I believed
Anything, anything for you
absolutely anything

I wanted you to need me
or so you believed
Anything, anything for me
absolutely anything

    I suppose everything has a conundrum because language is linear. We only hint at Truth. How do we all have stars and not feel special? Well the star is an indication of our uniqueness. Love is rampant because of it! How do we have it all? That is the question…I suppose when at some moment infinity is dropped at my doorstep…we’ll all get there…we don’t have when…we only ask, how? 😉

      What does a star indicate? Well, inherently, a star indicates a star.

      As for “How do we have it all?” Are you presuming that we do not, and that “knowing how” is how we COULD have it all, you know, if we could only figure out how? That questioning seems to me to be a resisting, and that is fine, but “what do we have” is a question that may lead to noticing, and as we notice various “things that I have,” I have all of the things that I notice that I have- every single one. Of the totality of the it that I have, I have all of that it- I have it all, but absolutely nothing more than this, only exactly all of it.

      By the way, how long until eternity begins? I’ve been waiting for it to begin for, God, it seems like forever now!
