Lyrics

APPROVAL

Not waiting for your APPROVAL
Not waiting for your APPROVAL

In the court of public opinion
The turn of phrase you are twisting
To fulfill your agenda
It’s not ok, it’s not ok
It’s not ok, it’s not ok
Each and every feeling
Brings me closer to healing
I focus in on the beat of my heart
The rhythm

And it’s different now
I can sit so still
While you look the other way
For the coast is clear
And the moon is full
Not waiting for your
APPROVAL
Not waiting for your
APPROVAL

It’s been a test of endurance
It almost got the better of me once
I held on tight to my mantra
I’ll be ok, I’ll be ok
I’ll be ok, I’ll be ok
Kept trying harder to let go
Possessed, obsessed with the FOMO
It’s a wonder I could focus
In on the beat of my heart
The rhythm

CHORUS

It gives me fire
It gives me life
Say you want me
Say you love me
I know how to play nice
(You never have to say it twice)
An acorn in
A diamond world
In spite of
The estrangement
Eventually
The oyster becomes a pearl

And it’s different now
I can sit so still
While you look the other way
For the coast is clear
And the moon is full
Not waiting for your
Not waiting for your no


And it’s different now
I have had my fill
Go on and look the other way
For my mind is clear
And my heart is full
Not waiting for your
APPROVAL
Not waiting for your
APPROVAL
