Shameika lyrics

I used to walk down the street
On my way to school
Grinding my teeth to a rhythm invisible
I used my feet to crush dead leaves like they had fallen from trees
Just for me just to be crashed cymbals

In class, I passed the time
Drawing a slash every time the second hand went by a group of five, ten, twelve times is a minute

But Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential

I used to march down the windy, windy sidewalk
Slapping my leg with the riding crop
Thinking it made me come off so tough
I didn't smile, because a smile always seemed rehearsed
I wasn't afraid of the bullies, and that just made the bullies worse

In class, I passed the time
Drawing a slash every time the second hand went by a group of five, ten, twelve times is a minute

But Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential

Hurricane Gloria in excelsis deo
That's my burden.
My dog, and my man, and my music is my holy trinity
Hurricane Gloria in excelsis deo
That's my burden.
My dog, and my man, and my music is my holy trinity

Tony told me he described me as pissed off, funny, and warm
Sebastian said I'm a good man in a storm
Back then I didn't know what potential meant
And Shameika wasn't gentle, and she wasn't my friend but
She got through to me, and I'll never see her again
She got through to me, and I'll never see her again

I'm pissed off, funny, and warm
I'm a good man in a storm
And when the fall is torrential, I'll recall

Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential

Tony told me he described me as pissed off, funny, and warm
Sebastian said I'm a good man in a storm
Back then I didn't know what potential meant
But Shameika wasn't gentle, and she wasn't my friend
But she got through to me, and I'll never see her again
She got through to me, and I'll never see her again

I'm pissed off, funny, and warm
I'm a good man in a storm
And when the fall is torrential, I'll recall

Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential

Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential
