I Trip Every Time – Written Tuesday 17th August 2004 (Aged 29)

I Trip Every Time

you can do no wrong
i trip on your halo every time
and every time i pick myself up
and i pay an emotional fine
you can do not wrong
in your ivory tower
watching everyone else
whilst you can only flower
i trip on your halo every time
every time it leaves me blind
and just stumbling around
you have to believe
and you must not let those doubts creep in
perfection is self preservation
doubting thomas must not win
every situation is perfectly played out
you can do not wrong
i trip on your angel wings
i am blinded by your halo
all i can do it cower
and want to be asked in
because i do not have the key for the ivory tower
so my garden is all weeds
and you cannot help but flower
