The Lyrics

This song is dedicated to my friend Ashley who is about "4'3"
There's something about me
That you may never like
There's problems in this life
That i cant solve
Somewhere in this cupboard
Theres a shelf that I cant reach
Maybe it's too far away...
Or maybe i'm just short

Maybe i'm just short


So hold me up when i cant reach
Pray 4 me to be tall
Hold be when i'm scared
And love me when i'm Tall
Everything I am
And everything i'm not
I'll also be the 1
You never wanted me to be
I could pick you up even if i tryed
I'd give up evrything
To only be "5'1"
So hold me up when i cant reach
Pray 4 me to be tall
You can hold me when I'm scared
That someone might step on me
So love me when i'm tall

Love me when i'm tall

I'm trying to be serious
Look at me but please don't grin
I can tell you one thing
I wish i were "5'1"
Roaming this world
I'm alive but i'm small
Part of me is meek in this
But part of me is tough


Maybe i'm just short


Love me when i'm tall

Love me when i'm tall
When i'm tall
When i'm tall
When i'm tall
(If i'm tall)
