The Lyrics

Another 2020 one. I was trying to branch out with how I wrote songs and viewed the Pandemic. So I wrote this one from the perspective of the Coronavirus.
At first you were afraid, you were terrified
Kept thinking I could never spread
If folks just stayed inside
But then you spent so many nights
Thinking how lockdown was wrong
So I grew strong
And I learned how to move along

And so I'm back
And hard to trace
I came back strong and now you're pissed
The last five months feel like a waste
You should have listened to that Doc
You should have stayed home from the beach
If you'd known for just one second
You'd be struggling to breathe

Go on now, go, head to the bar
The schools are fine now
Just leave that mask inside your car
Weren't you the ones
Who couldn't sit home occupied
You think I'd just crumble?
You think I'd disappear in time?

Oh no, not I, it's how I thrive
Oh, as long as you don't wear a mask
I know I'll stay alive
Please don't live your life in dread
It's that much faster that I'll spread
And I'll just thrive
It's how I thrive, hey, hey

It takes all the strength you have
Just to stay apart
Keep trying hard to give economies
A good jumpstart
And you spent oh-so many nights
Just watching Netflix by yourself
I'd see you cry
But now my shedding rates up high
And my disease
Some virus new
I'm not this common little head cold
So much worse than just the flu
And so I felt like dropping in
And you expect a quick vaccine
Well, now I'm saving all my spreading
For someone ignoring me

Go on now, go, head to the bar
The schools are fine now
Just leave that mask inside your car
Weren't you the ones
Who couldn't sit home occupied
You think I'd just crumble?
You think I'd disappear in time?

Oh no, not I, it's how I thrive
Oh, as long as you don't wear a mask
I know I'll stay alive
Please don't live your life in dread
It's that much faster that I'll spread
And I'll just thrive
It's how I thrive
Oh

Go on now, go, head to the bar
The schools are fine now
Just leave that mask inside your car
Weren't you the ones
Who couldn't sit home occupied
You think I'd just crumble?
You think I'd disappear in time?

Oh no, not I, it's how I thrive
Oh, as long as you don't wear a mask
I know I'll stay alive
Please don't live your life in dread
It's that much faster that I'll spread
And I'll just thrive
It's how I thrive
It's how I thrive
