Thank you, Fiona

If you don't have a song to sing
You're ok
You know how to get along humming
If you don't have a date
Celebrate
Go out and sit on the lawn
And do nothing
-Cause it's just what you must do and
Nobody does it anymore

No I don't believe in the wasting of time
But I don't believe that I'm wasting mine

If you don't have a point to make
Don't sweat it
You'll make a sharp one being so kind
(And I'd sure appreciate it)
Everyone else's goal's
To get big-headed
Why should I follow that beat,
Being that I'm
Better than fine

- Waltz (Better Than Fine), Fiona Apple, 2005

I know, I had not paid enough attention to them. Even if she is a bit bonkers, she is a BRILLIAANT lyricist and has some actual wisdom...

I am glad you posted!
