about

This is me riffing on Sheryl Crow. I was mildly interested in learning country guitar.

On the chorus, I love the way my Telecaster just suddenly jangles out of nowhere.

This song was about a year in my life when I had a massive bout of Anxiety Disorder. That year brings back memories of trips to the emergency room with my pulse going up until 180.

It was all because of so much toxicity I got from people while working on a mainstream film. I lost some friendships during the making of that film. This song is my consolation from all those horrible experiences.

lyrics

I DON'T BELONG HERE

Everywhere I go
I search for silence
Want things to be slow
But the world is violent

I can’t figure out
Noises people dig right now
Am I singled out? (No)
I’m just having this and that

Heart attack
It’s something grave, believe me
I would die
Wishing of somewhere quiet

I don’t belong here
I should be home playing my guitar
I should be sleepin'
On my bed, not in my car
I don’t belong here
Don’t wanna be a superstar
I should be sleepin'
Just right about now
Just right about now

People are deranged
So I’m my own best friend
I don’t wanna change
'Cos I want my weekends

I’ve made up my mind
I’m happy when I’m on my own
Know what I’ve found out?
People give me heart attacks

Heart attacks
They’re something grave, believe me
I would die
Wishing there was no riot
