lyrics

I remember in kindergarten, riding bikes in the spring outside.
I crashed into the fence by the garden; you teased me for a month or five.
Running laps, I know I’m so slow. You all ran until I cried.
I didn’t have the confidence to tell you to “fuck off bully, I’m taking my time!”

You called me a dictionary when we were back in grade five.
I could spell better than most children. I helped you study, yeah, we got by.
At summer camp I was the oldest kid. I knew just what to do:
I stole your things and teased and kicked you, then felt bad for a year or two.

Grow! We are growing up. Learn! We are learning stuff.
In every way and every day, we’re growing up. We’re learning stuff.

You told me you are a computer, but I knew that was a lie.
You and I are normal humans, you are just an average guy.
I could have been something special! Now I’ll give it all to you:
I will help you learn to love you and do the things you want to do.

All we want is for you to love you and believe in the things that you do.
All we want is for you to love you and believe in the things that you do.
All you want is for us to love you and believe in the things that you do.
All I want is for you to love you and believe in what I’m saying.
All we want is for us to love us and believe in what we tell us.
All we want is for you to love you and believe in the things that you do.
