about

need i list more similarities between oprah and myself? in summary tho: capitalism's obsession with "origin stories" and "success" has birthed the idea of "careers," which are::: a lie. one does not simply progress from "origin" (fake) to "success" (also fake). some people from older generations do not understand this fact. that is not their fault, but their discomfort cannot and should not police us. the sooner i became comfortable with this fact, the sooner i started actively pursuing my own queer passions. i will be fine, and you will be fine. our lives will be very different. neither one of us has seen our life path represented in books, or on TV, or in movies, because it will be completely unique. the rest is still unwritten xoxo natasha bedingfield

lyrics

I got lost in the used books section
Somewhere between all the bibles and memoirs
Didn’t know the time of day
Didn’t matter, anyway
I lost track of time

Poured out my pockets for the yellowed pages
Can’t buy a purpose but you can buy inspiration
Now it’s dark out
I’m almost 24
And i have no job
Am i Oprah yet?

Guess i’ll blame pisces men
Who do i think i am?

What am i avoiding? There’s so much that i’m avoiding
Everywhere i look i’m hit by some guy’s “origin story”
The same reiteration of “discovered in a basement”
Maybe i should find a basement?
Maybe that’s where i’ve gone wrong
I heard that Oprah lost her job at 23
Maybe i’ll be a DJ?
Does that pay well?

I’m a little bit afraid of what i want
It feels too right and it feels to honest

I’m tired of white boys in jam bands
Explaining me jazz

And i don’t know what i’ve been hiding
But i think i’ve had to
There’s a bitter sense of aloneness
In crowded rooms
You don’t know me

What brings out the fight in you?
Don’t disappear
Just make the world better
Don’t have to know how at 22
Don’t disappear,
Just make the world better

Now i’m going home
Only i can say no
