Sometimes I Wonder If I'm a Mistake

[Daniel Striped Tiger]

Sometimes I wonder if I'm a mistake
I'm not like anyone else I know
When I'm asleep or even awake
Sometimes I get to dreaming that I'm just a fake
I'm not like anyone else

Others I know are big and are wild
I'm very small and quite tame
Most of the time I'm weak and I'm mild
Do you suppose that's a shame

Often I wonder if I'm a mistake
I'm not supposed to be scared am I
Sometimes I cry and sometimes I shake
Wondering isn't it true that the strong never break
I'm not like anyone else I know
I'm not like anyone else

[Lady Aberlin]

I think you are just fine as you are
I really must tell you
I do like the person that you are becoming
When you are sleeping
When you are waking
You are my friend

It's really true
I like you
Crying or shaking or dreaming or breaking
There's no one mistaking it
You're my best friend

I think you are just fine as you are
I really must tell you
I do like the person that you are becoming
When you are sleeping
When you are waking
You're not a fake
You're no mistake
You are my friend
