Perfectly Plain

Waking up I greet the day, 

The sun hasn't come up yet and that's okay,

I get ready knowing full well what I'm getting into,

I'll put some music on because my favorite song makes me feel better and maybe I'll do a little dance too,

I'll take on the day wearing my favorite sweatshirt, 

Faded and maybe I've overrated it but its still my favorite, 

Get on the bus and boy do I like the morning sun,

Not yet blue because the day has only just begun, 

Long drives are the best because all my songs are on shuffle, 

Boy I'm feelin' good! But I gotta pick up the hustle,

Hop off and into class say hey to the friends I pass, 

Gotta tell them a joke I overheard the other day, 

And, hey! They were about to say the same thing! 

Feeding off positivity, 

Got that blue shaken out of me, 

Love all my friends and the music I got in me, 

The day has just begun, 

But boy! I feel like the afternoon sun.
