ALANIS MORISSETTE lyrics : "Orchid"

Me and my helmet
Such an unconventional kid
All intense and kinetic

At best tolerated from afar

Not yet arrested

And by that I mean betrothed
Though at start I am duly courted
I've just not been trusted with altars


I'm a sweet piece of work
Well intentioned yet disturbed

Wrongly labeled and underfed
Treated like a rose as an orchid


My friends as they weigh in
Get understandably protective
They have a hard time being objective

So inside, we cancel each other out

I'm a sweet piece of work

Well intentioned and unnerved
Enabled and misunderstood
Treated like a rose as an orchid


You've brought water to me
Making sure my bloom rebounds

You know best of what my special care allows

So I've lived in my blind spot

Thought myself usual when I'm not
In your garden is a nice spot
As long as it is brave and where you are


For this sweet piece of work
High maintenance and deserted

I've been different and deserving
Treated like a rose as an orchid


Sweet piece of work
Overwhelmed unobserved
I've been bowed down to but so misread

Treated like a rose as an orchid
