Theme Songs for Introverts

Ben Folds is one of my favorite musicians. I love most of what he does, but (most of) the lyrics to this song resonate especially with me.

I feel like a quote out of context,
Withholding the rest,
So I can be free what you want to see.

I got the gesture and sound,
Got the timing down.
It's uncanny, yeah, you'd think it was me.

Do you think I should take a class
To lose my southern accent?
Did I make me up,
Or make the face till it stuck?
I do the best imitation of myself.


Last night I was east with them,
And west within,
Trying to be for you what you wanna see.

But I can't help it with you,
The good and bad comes through.
Don't want you hanging out with
No one but me.

Now if it's all the same,
It comes from the same place.
And if my mind's somewhere else,
You won't be able to tell.
I do the best imitation of myself.

Yes it's uncanny to see,
You'd really think it was me:
The best imitation of myself

Share yours, won't you?
