I was never very good at messing up
I'm afraid to take the blame
Because I don't mess up very often
And when I do I'm ashamed

I not too good at taking praise
Accepting it to be true
I was always expected to be great
Praise was something I barely knew

I was always expected to be good
It was silence that usually met my ears
I learned both criticism and praise
Were things I didn't want to hear

So be patient with me
I am afraid
To be good or bad at anything
When it comes to things I do well
I just want to do and be
And when they pass by silently
I smile from the shadows
And wish you'd set me free
Let me be me
Unafraid of criticism
Open to praise

But please be patient
Right now I'm afraid
