Microscopic Town

I breezed in
All quiet-like
Why was I afraid?

'Cause last time
It was too big
For my fragile self to take

I really felt the transition
Today now my blood has thickened

And though I felt welcome
None of you knew
Where I was coming from

Why worry?
Just let go
In this microscopic town
Short and sweet
We are home
Yeah, this is our home now

Carelessly
And randomly
Breaking out into song

With the gang
This is insane
Two years have come and gone

I never was meant to be there
That life feels like some old nightmare

And some say we're too small
But you'll never understand
Why I need you all

Oh Why worry?
Just let go
In this microscopic town
Short and sweet
We are home
This is our home

Take it in
This harmless
Microscopic town
Thank God for this
Safe haven
Promise me it's our home now

Now, now, now...

Why couldn't I have been born with
In this world from the start?
In a careless country setting
I'd have a perfect heart

Being dropped here all a sudden
Inside this little town
It pulls me toward something safer
Instead of the other way around

I'll stay here
I'll stay right here
As long as I'm able

But I will keep in mind
I won't make it in this world
If I'm too comfortable

But Why worry?
Just let go
In this microscopic town
Short and sweet
We are home
This is our home

Take it in
This harmless
Microscopic town
Yeah, and this
Safe haven
It has to be our home
Promise me it's our home
Yeah, this is our home now

Now, now, now...

None of you knew
Where I was coming from

Really strong intro, it seems almost like a slam work, with acoustics it would blow me away... the intention I felt in it was good, but it sort of petered out in vagueries. Editing on the bones of it. Great work!

It's really nice and interesting but you could use some punctuation. =)
