about

this song will be on an upcoming album I'm working on called 'Inauthenticity'

lyrics

the first time someone called me 'queer'
I didn't know what it meant
so I looked it up in the dictionary
and I took it as a compliment, whoa-oh
I took it as a compliment

it said 'strange, odd or unusual'
and I thought to myself,
why would anyone ever wanna be
wanna be anything else?

the first time I ever wore a dress
I should've known my life would be a mess
cause I looked in the mirror and hated what I saw
just a little less, just a little bit less

I was just fourteen I wish someone had told me then...
that I didn't have to feel like a failed man
I didn't have to feel like a failed plan.

and I'll stop being 'queer' the day
you stop saying it's not OK
for people to act a certain way
because of their anatomy
because of the shape of their bodies

maybe I wouldn't have to feel
maybe I wouldn't have to feel
maybe I wouldn't have to feel like a failed man
wouldn't have to feel like a failed plan
