For this Tunes Tuesday, I am choosing another song that spoke to me the first time I heard it.My favorite line is: “I’ve been searching for myself and I know I’m gonna find her if I break away from everyone.”

This is one of the lead songs on the soundtrack of my life. This song never fails to inspire me and get my blood pumping. I hope it does the same for you.

Crazy
Alana Davis

You’ve got your home of the brave
And I’ve got my land of the free.
You  conform to what society says
And I conform to me.
Looking for light in the corners,
Getting caught in the spider web.
You look at me as though I’m  giving a performance
When I’m just feeding my head.

And you know that  I’m doing alright
And I won’t explain myself to you just to avoid a fight
How I’m living ain’t correct,
But for me, its just right

I’m not  completely insane.
I’m maybe just a little bit crazy.
There’s no one to  blame,
Got no shame ’bout my game,
Don’t want nobody to save me.

I’ve got a pair of ruby slippers that
I don’t wear much anymore
And if I  had the nerve,
I’d click my heels and return
To the wonderland I knew  before.
I’m waiting on a slow boat to China,
Gonna sail away to the  sun.
I’ve been searching for myself,
And I know I’m gonna find her
If  I break away from everyone.

So, the way that I act may not fit in.
Just because I have a mind of my own,
Doesn’t mean its a sin.
I don’t ask  you to give up;
Don’t expect me to give in.

I’m not completely  insane.
I’m maybe just a little bit crazy.
There’s no one to blame,
Got no shame ’bout my game,
Don’t want nobody to save me.

Some like to  live for the moment,
Taking life into their hands every day.
And if they  don’t get killed,
They get so high off the thrill,
They could float to  heaven anyway.
And others want to save for tomorrow,
Thinking money is  security.
Well, I understand the need,
But I don’t get the greed.
Y’know, they all seem pretty crazy to me.

You can tell by the expression  I wear.
Though I seem a little strange to you
I don’t really care.  I’ve  got the freedom to be;
There are others like me everywhere…

I’m not  completely insane.
I’m maybe just a little bit crazy.
There’s no one to  blame,
Got no shame ’bout my game,
Don’t want nobody to save me.

  1. I like the lyrics to “Some Nights” by Fun. Great song and great words. 🙂

  2. My list is endless! Love this song, it’s new to me so thanks for sharing.

  3. Great lyrics. I see why you like it. I love eclectic people. They are far more interesting than people who are playing a role. One of my favorite Rush songs is called “Subdivisions” which has the line “conform or be cast out” which is what most people try to do in groups. My daughter likes to wear different brightly colored socks. I love it. Thanks for sharing, BTG

  4. Thank God for the little bit crazy people in this world.
