LITTLE OFF KEY

LITTLE OFF KEY

little off
key
might be
a
freak
like others
i don't talk
never belonged
to a flock
speak a
bit loud
feel isolated in
a crowd
can't stay
calm
when something's
going on
awkward
afraid
gonna make
a mistake
look like
a fool
trying to
keep cool
arrive in
casual wear
at black tie
affairs
don't possess
social grace
end up
losing face
topics i
choose
always
old news
pretend
and pose
that i'm
not alone
have giggling
fits
when
inappropriate
shift my
shape
still turned
away
if i'm
shunned
order dinner
for one
don't wanna
change my stripes
everytime
i socialize
little off
key
might be
a
freak
but at
least
what you get
is what you see
