heron – i’m new here lyrics – gil scott

“i’m new here”

i did not become someone different
that i did not want to be
but i’m new here
will you show me around

no matter how far wrong you’ve gone
you can always turn around

met a woman in a bar
told her i was hard to get to know
and near impossible to forget
she said i had an ego on me
the size of texas

well i’m new here and i forget
does that mean big or small

no matter how far wrong you’ve gone
you can always turn around

and i’m shedding plates like a snake
and it may be crazy but i’m
the closest thing i have
to a voice of reason

turn around, turn around, turn around
and you may come full circle
and be new here again
[x5]
