Point to Prove

Chords

 

I put in all my hours
I'm playing every night just to get a little better at guitar
I'm takin’ singing lessons at 80 bucks a lesson
(who the hell am I impressin’?)
And why do I work so hard?


I've searched my soul, dug deep below, to find the answers
I think the reason for it is…


I was an ugly kid with a handsome older brother
Yeah, I was a catch... like a cold or an ugly fish
I knew what to do:
wear my talent like a mask and hope it magically distracts you
but I'm back, I've practiced…
my act’s together
I got better and a Point to Prove


I didn't know her, in June I got her screen name
as valuable as gold for antisocial kids in 10th grade
I spent the rest of my vacation glued down to my chair, was
afraid to miss a second of our digital affair 'cause
when summer ended, I could finally be the guy
I tried to be in person, but could only be online
the first day of the school year we get our seat assignments
I ended up right next to her and we just sat in silence


and I wouldn't wish that awkwardness on anybody
I think the reason for it is...


I was a chubby kid with an athletic old brother
Yeah, I was a catch... as in I was easy to catch during tag
('cause I was fat!)
I knew what to do:
I would chase a newer passion
'cause I'm sick of nothin’ happenin'
but I'm back, I've practiced…
my act’s together,
I got better and a Point to Prove


And I have hit the bottom, been lost, tossed,
and gosh, I've been burned by gossip
and I have gone full Hot Topic,
was an ugly duckling crossed with a few Hot Pockets
and I'll be damned if where I am's
not what I worked for
I think the reason for it is...


I wasn't talented... when all I wanted was attention
Yeah, I was in no way, no way
a catch in life or love
I knew what to do:
To do it 'cause I love it
(and one-up my older brother, yeah)
Nah, I'm just playin' 'cause I've stopped:
Dying from embarrassments, hiding from comparisons
I'm driven, I've got: vision, time, ambition,
and a point to prove
