Am I too crazy for you?
Is my charisma too hysterical?
Maybe because the way I bounce off the walls,
Or the way I scream when I’m giddy.
But baby, I’m just livin’ lively.

You say calm down,
And to slow my roll.
I know mymindruns100thoughtsperminute!
But baby, I’m just livin’ lively.

When we first met,
Our gazes caught like a hummingbird in a net.
You said you loved the way I cherished
everything.
And how anything could make me smile.
I really thought I could teach you how to live,
But you weren’t in it.
You started to be annoyed by me
And cringe when I laughed
I’d cry to your back,
But baby, I’m just livin’ lively.

We said our goodbyes,
And cut the ties.
But now you’ve grown bitter
Crying for me to come back.
I don’t want your dreariness anymore though!
I don’t need your droopy moods!
I won’t let you be the weight that holds me
to the ground,
When all I want to do is fly.
Because this is just how I live.
’Cause baby,
I’m gonna live my life lively.
