miniature disasters lyrics – kt tunstall

i don’t want to be second best
don’t want to stand in line
don’t want to fall behind
don’t want to get caught out
don’t want to do without
and the lesson i must learn
is that i’ve got to wait my turn

looks like i got to be hot and cold
i got to be taught and told
got to be good as gold
but perfectly honest
i think it would be good for me
coz it’s a hindrance to my health
i’m a stranger to myself

miniature disasters and minor catastrophoes
bring me to my knees
well i must be my own master
or a miniature disaster will be
it will be the death of me

i don’t have to raise my voice
don’t have to be underhand
just got to understand
that it’s gonna be up and down
it’s gonna be lost and found
and i can’t take to the sky
before i like it on the ground

and i need to be patient
and i need to be brave
need to discover
how i need to behave
and i’ll find out the answers
when i know what to ask
but i speak a different language
and everybody’s speaking too fast

miniature disasters and minor catastrophoes
bring me to my knees

well i must be my own master
i’ve got to run a little faster
i need to know i’ll last if a little
miniature disaster hits me
it could be the death of me
