ROUTE DELIGHT

If I’m losing everything I ever gained,

I don’t care that I once had it all, 

On this downhill slope, I finally have my chance,

To burn out in a blaze of glory before I fall,

Like the fireworks popping I want to be,

Burning brightly on New Year’s Eve,

Gone in the blink of an eye.  

They laugh, they hurl insults at me,

And I already know I’m a silly little fool,

But I’m honest, I’m ready to give it up,

I’m ready to do whatever I have to do to be free. 

Give me the chance to show you,

I can build my way back up, even though,

I’m not trying to prove nothing to you.

Yes I know, I know from experience, so very well,

You all never change, but things are still swell, 

And I’ll let you in on the secret,

I think you’re just crazy.

They laugh, they hurl insults at me,

And I already know I’m a silly little fool,

But I’m honest, I’m ready to give it up,

I’m ready to do whatever I have to do to be free. 

I’m a hopeless dreamer, 

But what I want is forever, 

And you look me up and down,

But all I’m thinking of is my crown… 

They laugh, they hurl insults at me,

And I already know I’m a silly little fool,

But I’m honest, I’m ready to give it up,

I’m ready to do whatever I have to do to be free. 

Because I want my freedom,

And I want my crown,

Swimming in the ocean,

You smile and say I’m just a clown.
