Bubble Troubles

By Jai Cafarella on April 26, 2020 3:40 pm

Super duper simple this week, something a bit cute n quirky, quite different from last week. The base idea for this track has been on my short list for a while, and this week felt like the right time for it. Part of me feels a bit embarrassed to share this, but I've spent most of my life being afraid to be the real me, and I'm only just starting to learn and allow myself to do that.  I've never really measured up to society's stereotypical male yard stick, but because I craved acceptance, I put more effort into trying to fit in than just being myself. I like cute and quirky stuff, so I guess it's pretty fitting that a cute and quirky song contains lyrics about self-acceptance and allowing myself to be... uh... myself, regardless of what society says I should or shouldn't like.


Lyrics:


Trouble!
I'll hide in my bubble
The world can't control me
If I'm all alonely
Pretending that the world is not on fire


Struggle!
When I leave my bubble
The world is so scary
For somebody like me
Ambivalent of who I really am


I'm slowly learning
I'm slowly learning to live again
I'm slowly finding my feet again
I'm slowly learning how to be myself


When there's trouble
I really want to cuddle
Cause you can console me
With silent acceptance
A chance for me to grow and breathe again


Life's a juggle
I can't stay in my bubble
I have to face this
I can't stay in stasis
Accept myself is where I need to start


I'm slowly learning
I'm slowly learning to live again
I'm slowly finding my feet again
I'm slowly learning how to be myself


Troubles in my bubble seem far away
