Point to Prove

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
