Freak Accident

Lyrics

How long have you been on hold
Makes you want somebody to hold
Right outside your window I was dancing
I wore that wig I wore that dress
Guess I thought you'd be impressed
You just rolled your eyes and shut the shade

It wouldn't be the first time
It won't be the last
Well I know you love me enough to tell me when I'm acting like an ass

We'll just call it a freak accident
All my money's spent
Can't help myself, daydreamin'
Freak accident
Lack of common sense
We'll just call it a freak accident

Screwed up a few things in my life
Maybe even screwed them up twice
Every now and then somebody's countin'
Then again I'm still alive
Somehow managed to survive
That ain't nothing worth announcing

My little stumbles started out as a child
I've got a little steam to blow off
So please excuse me if I seem too wild

We'll just call it a freak accident
All my money's spent
Can't help myself, daydreamin'
Freak accident
Lack of common sense
We'll just call it a freak accident

Even when I'm feeling down
Look in the mirror and see a clown
When I look away I'm always happy
I know you're a misfit too
That's my favorite part of you
Even at the fair you can get lucky

And this time I know I'm right
Though I've known all along
Gotta admit its pretty far, few, and in between
To worry about if something should go wrong

We'll just call it a freak accident
All my money's spent
Can't help myself, daydreamin'
Freak accident
Lack of common sense
We'll just call it a freak accident
