You're not Stupid



Verse 1:
You're miserable and you don't know why.
All you can see are the ways you went wrong.
Clouds of tears storm your eyes.
You know you should have done better.
You could see through this if only your mind
would work correctly.
Just once.

Chorus:
You're not stupid-You're just not thinking clearly.
Step back my love.
Breathe in deeply.
Think.
I know you can do this, you're not stupid.

Verse 2:
You always ask yourself where you went wrong.
That's mature.
But it's not always you screwin things up.
Cast your eyes on those around you, they make mistakes too.
Even when they mean well.
Come now, blink back the tears,
stifle the rising sob.
You can do this.

(CHORUS)

Verse 3:
If we never stepped a foot wrong
how would we learn?
If we never messed up
how could we ever show love through an apology?
You're tryin your hardest and that's
all anyone can do.
Now think!
Calm your mind and think clearly.

(CHORUS)

Bridge:
You know you're not stupid.
You're just letting your emotions
cloud your judgment.
Take the time to cry out the tears.
But then you need to think clearly.

Chorus:
You're not stupid-You're just not thinking clearly.
Step back my love.
Breathe in deeply.
Think.
I know you can do this, you're not stupid.

Is this a song or did you write it? Great message, I want to say it to people sometimes. Some people should take more time to step back and think about it. Then again, some people are just stupid. And if not stupid then dense. Unfortunately.

I actually wrote this. I wrote a song last night in my sleep, and this morning when I woke up all I could remember is "You're not stupid, you're just not thinkin clearly." So I sat and this is what came out.

Good work. I can't write songs, when I do they sound terrible. I enjoyed this quite a bit.
