lyrics

Mr Optimistic Me

Tuning Open A Strings (6-1) EAC#EAC# No Capo Key A


The world outside my window doesn’t think too much of me
I’m nobody famous and I never will be
A name that everybody knows, a face that people see
I’m just Mr Optimistic Me

Sometimes they call me ‘journeyman’ sometimes it’s worse than that
I wear this ‘Mr Average’ like a boring, shapeless hat
But inside me there’s a killer song just waiting to get free
‘Cos I’m Mr Optimistic Me

Sometimes I want to give it up and say “I did my best”
I used up so much self-belief competing with the rest
I feel like that for two weeks but it never lasts for three
‘Cos I’m Mr Optimistic Me

The world outside my window doesn’t think too much of me
I’m nobody famous and I never will be
But take a word like ‘crying’, and put a ‘T’ instead of ‘C’
And you’ve got Mr Optimistic Me

I know I’ll keep on trying I know I’ve got no choice
I carry words unspoken and they demand a voice
And every time I get knocked down I’ll get back up and be
Mr Optimistic Me
