The Loser https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqCzgGHgO40 #Live Music #Spokane #Bullying

This is a song wrote several years ago while teaching middle school. It’s from the perspective of the one who is labeled “loser.”

The Loser

Verse 1

You flash me those “I’m better than you eyes”

And then look happy when you think I might cry

But my size never came from making you small

So I’m not the loser after all

Verse 2

You say exactly what you know will cause pain

And then pretend that you had nothing to gain

But my strength never came from making you weak

So I guess I’m not the geek

 

chorus:

I’m not perfect to look at most times

And I’m

I’m not perfectly wise

But I don’t get my jollies or joy by stealing anybody’s pride

Verse 3

You give me that “you don’t fit in” glare

And then look smug because you know that I care

I never won my race by making you crawl

So I’m not the loser after all
