"If you don't like something: change it. If you can't change it: change your attitude." - Maya Angelou


CHORUS
I don’t want to be a complainer
No talking to me now, see you later
I just want to be
Where the ground
Meets the sky
Being like me is overrated
And a little complicated
I just want to be
Where the ground
Meets the sky

Verse 1
Closing in on what you know
You have no more time to grow
You have no more time to shine
And for others that’s just fine
But if you’re someone like me
There’s so much that you can see
And you just can’t let that be
But things in life are never free

CHORUS
I don’t want to be a complainer
No talking to me now, see you later
I just want to be
Where the ground
Meets the sky
Being like me is overrated
And a little complicated
I just want to be
Where the ground
Meets the sky

Verse 2
All the places I have been
All the laughs, the tears, the sins
Where I start
Where I begin
When I come to a dead end
All the things that I have seen
All these words, what can they mean?
To have fun, or come and stay?
Go back home, or walk away?

Bridge
I had the perfect chance
To pursue a sweet romance
Then I knew it wasn’t for me
Fallin’ in love isn’t easy
So I said “I’m not your type”
Though he had everything I liked
Many will say I’m not alright
But they don’t choose to use their sight

CHORUS
I don’t want to be a complainer
No talking to me now, see you later
I just want to be
Where the ground
Meets the sky
Being like me is overrated
And a little complicated
I just want to be
Where the ground
Meets the sky

Verse 3
Some may follow
Some may lead
It’s all just work for what you need
Take more pride in what you chose
In life you’ll win and then you’ll lose
What can I say, what can you do?
Some things are real
Others aren’t true
Just ignore what they all say
Everything will be okay

CHORUS
I don’t want to be a complainer
Talking to me now see you later
I just want to be
Where the ground
Meets the sky
Being like me is overrated
And a little complicated
I just want to be
Where the ground
Meets the sky

CHORUS
I don’t want to be a complainer
Talking to me now see you later
I just want to be
Where the ground
Meets the sky
Being like me is overrated
And a little complicated
I just want to be
Where the ground
Meets the sky
Meets the sky

I wrote this at age 11, in 5th grade. It's one of my favorite songs I've written
