Do you need me
Do you need me
Do you need me
Like you need your coffee

Zebra stripes of dark and light make my heart electric
Tell me anything you like, I'm a conversational eclectic
Crack of dawn or late at night, when the streetlights flicker
When you're barely hangin' on, like an old bumper sticker

You call the shots and I'll pull 'em for ya baby
But would you miss me if I went away

Earning your respect is a mountain I can’t summit
You think you know exactly what I am and the ways I’ve become it
Underneath the pleasantries, below the grinder’s humming
A hundred broken melodies are slowly off and running

I know what I'm doin', I know there's no guarantee
I got a degree, I got another degree, and now I got 140 degrees

Do you need me to smile
Do you need me to hold my tongue
Do you need me to be
A cog in your machine
Do you need to see proof to consider the truth that I'm worth a damn too


from When I Get Home, released June 16, 2015
