lyrics

everyone's wearing the same lovely face suddenly
my eyes scan the contours of the crowd for something new
distractions, revisions of bullet points
must be kind, must be feminist, must be smart & engaging like you
but must live close to my city, too

now here comes the glare of the sun again
what's my excuse this time?
i'm stumbling over my words again
trying so hard to find something mine

i'm principled, i am not made of stone, it is not the same thing
everyone else just forgets this about me
now i wanna feel like myself again
but i smile & laugh this stupid social laugh; there is nothing that's funny at all
i only wanna tell the truth now, anymore

now here comes the glare of the sun again
what's my excuse this time?
i'm stumbling over my words again
trying so hard to find something mine

the city, the water
the pull, this is who i am
so confusing to others
alone in a crowd again

there i go leave it unsaid again
what's my excuse this time?
you're being cute & i've fled again
saying there's just no time

here comes the glare of the sun again
what's my excuse this time?
i'm stumbling over my words again
trying so hard to find something mine

about

rorie kelly New York

rorie kelly is on a quest to bring her songs to ears around the world through the cunning use of the internet and a small blue Toyota with over 200,000 miles on it.

rorie writes songs that are melodic and catchy but more thoughtful and introspective than the average pop tune. Her vocals are bigger than you would expect out of her small body and her guitar playing is powerful and percussive.
