lyrics

I was quiet for several years
but I awoke one day and said
“I’m fucking glad to be here
yeah I’m proud to be here”
I just wish the same for everyone
‘cos it’s a million times better
than insecurity and fear
(be glad that you’re here)

and I won’t apologise anymore
I’m smiling now
there’s nothing to be sorry for

I make mistakes quite frequently
but they’re MY mistakes
they’re the decisions that got me here
let no-one tell you you’re inferior
there are reasons why they’ll want to bring you down
it’s your world too, be proud

if I get in your way tonight
smile or move ‘cos it’s my right to be here
and I’m proud to be here
‘cos I watch the sun go down each day
my heart quickens
I just can’t believe that I’m here
if only for a few years

about

3 1/2 Inch Floppy Birmingham, UK

I met all of the band over a couple of weeks in October 1999. We met at different times, due to different band T-shirts. Sebby, Dave and I practised in my kitchen and it’s a miracle that they didn’t walk out then. But they stayed on, and Pete, Rachel and Jo were thrown in and the rest, as they say, is… unfortunate.
