RemThe Wrong Child

(Berry/Buck/Mills/Stipe) I've watched the children come and go A late long march into spring I sit and watch those children Jump in the tall grass Leap the sprinkler Walk in the ground Bicycle clothespin spokes The sound the smell of swingset hands I will try to sing a happy song I'll try and make a happy game to play Come play with me I whispered to my new found friend Tell me what it's like to go outside I've never been Tell me what it's like to just go outside I've never been And I never will I'm not supposed to be like this I'm not supposed to be like this But it's okay Hey, those kids are looking at me I told my friend myself Those kids are looking at me They're laughing and they're running over here They're laughing and they're running over here What do I do? What can I do? What should I do? What do I say? What can I say? I said I'm not supposed to be like this Let's try to find a happy game to play Let's try to find a happy game to play I'm not supposed to be like this But it's okay, okay
