Skinned Knees

sometimes i drive on back roads
just to see how high the dust will fly
and sometimes i’m too reckless
and i have no reason why

sometimes i’m impulsive
and i don’t regret mistakes
and sometimes i will push you
just to see how much it takes

sometimes i think too much
and others not enough
and sometimes i get sick of you
well baby ain't that rough

sometimes i laugh real hard
at no one but myself
and sometimes i don't believe in grammar
or syllables or rhyming

sometimes i like a challenge
‘cause i like to prove you wrong
others, i don’t care what you think
you can never be that strong

sometimes i am not enough
that’s all that i can be
and sometimes i still skin my knees
but baby i feel free
