Soundtracks – Self Portrait lyrics

All of these dreams in my head
keep spinning round
I'm grabbing my paper and pencil
to pin 'em down
I'll sketch my world as a prettier place
draw my self with a smiley face
and make this picture perfect

But all of these lines on my page
won't mean anything
until I learn to erase
the ones that I don't need
I'm covering up the stupid mistakes
and starting over and over again
to make this picture perfect

I'll start with where I'm standing now
and keep in check where I want to be
no one can tear my picture down
because it's me
and as long as I'm still proud of this self portrait I'm creating I'm doing fine
ya doing fine

Every now and again
someone comes along
they try to box me in
to a corner I've drawn
but pushing the walls down and struggling free makes me strong so I can keep
making this picture perfect
ye-yeah

Chorus:
I'll start with where I'm standing now
and keep in check where I want to be
no one can tear my picture down
because it's me
and as long as I'm still proud of this self portrait I'm creating I'm doing fine
ya doing fine

Ya doing fien ya

And what I'm sketching doesn't have to be
anything fancy
no
I'm just shaping stronger sides of me
of me, of me ye-yeah

Chorus:
I'll start with where I'm standing now
and keep in check where I want to be
no one can tear my picture down
because it's me
and as long as I'm still proud of this self portrait I'm creating I'm doing fine
ya doing fine

I'm doing fine x2
I'm doing fine
