why try to change me now...

I'm currently sitting once again at Ellwood's Coffee and because of all the lack of seating inside I've decided to pop a squat outside.  It is in a matter of words lovely outside,  I'm listening to Fionna Apple, sipping green tea with honey and taking deep breaths to lessen my anxiety and nervous stomach.  I love the lyrics of the song which is originally Frank Sinatra, playing now:

I'm sentimental
So I walk in the rain
I've got some habits
Even I can't explain
Go to the corner
I end up in Spain
Why try to change me now

I sit and daydream
I've got daydreams galore
Cigarette ashes
There they go on the floor
Go away weekends
Leave my keys in the door
Why try to change me now

Why can't I be more conventional
People talk
People stare
So I try
But can't be
Cuz I can't see
My strange little world
Just go passing me by

So let people wonder
Let 'em laugh
Let 'em frown
You know I'll love you
Till the moon's upside down
Don't you remember
I was always your clown
Why try to change me now

you know I love you til the moon's upside down...
