lyrics

Lyrics by Kristi McKeever with some alterations:
I could be a pilot
why not, why not try it
or get my PHD
go into therapy
As an architect
I won't play hard to get
we'll build some imagery
show some chivalry
How about a fighter, yeah fighter
entertainer
How about a fighter, yeah fighter
entertainer
And I know that I'll be good too
when I put my mind to whatever I do

Maybe now I'll be rising from the ashes
and tomorrow find my little passion
though I'm completely fine doin' nothing
I think about who I'm becoming

Some say I'm strange, can't deny it
this world is odd and we buy it
I'll break the code to win the lottery
and finally grab myself some reality
and I know that I'd be good too
as long as you won't make me blue

Maybe now I'll be rising from the ashes
and tomorrow find my little passion
though I'm completely fine doin' nothing
I think about who I'm becoming

It's not so much about what we are doing
it's who you are, who are you?
It's not so much about what we are doing
it's who you are, who are you?
Though I'm fine doin' nothing
I think about who I've become

Maybe now I'll be rising from the ashes
and tomorrow find my little passion
though I'm completely fine doin' nothing
I think about who I'm becoming

Maybe now I'll be rising from the ashes
and tomorrow find my little passion
though I'm completely fine doin' nothing
I think about who I'm becoming

Original lyrics by Kristi McKeever

Maybe now I’ll rise from the ashes
And tomorrow, find my passion
Though I’m fine doin’ nothin’
I think about who I am becoming

could be a pilot
Why not try it
Or get my PHD
Go into therapy

As an architect
I won’t play hard to get
Will build some imagery
Show some chivalry

How about a fighter, yeah, fighter
Entertainer... (music only for rest of this line?)
And I know that I’d be good too
When I put my mind to whatever I do

On your mark, get set, go
Be on a game show
Win a million for all I know

I could be gutzy
Sometimes lazy
People might even think I’m crazy

The sun and moon
Know what they’re doin’
Up and down, around we go
Hello, hello hello

Maybe now I’ll rise from the ashes
And tomorrow, find * passion
Though I’m fine doin’ nothin’
I think about who I’m becoming

And I know...I’ll be okay
If I can...learn how to play
