The Wrong Child - R.E.M.
I've watched the children come and go
A late long march into spring
I sit and watch those children
Jump in the tall grass
Leap the sprinkler
Walk in the ground
Bicycle clothespin spokes
The sound, the smell of swingset hands
I will try to sing a happy song
I'll try and make a happy game to play
Come play with me
I whispered to my new found friend
Tell me what it's like to go outside
I've never been
Tell me what it's like to just go outside
And I never will
And I'm not supposed to be like this
I'm not supposed to be like this
But it's okay
Hey those kids are looking at me
I told my friend myself
Those kids are looking at me
They're laughing and they're running over here
What do I do?
What should I do?
What do I say?
What can I say?
I said I'm not supposed to be like this
Let's try to find a happy game to play
But it's okay, okay
