Lost In A Valley Near Water

This song was created for Game of Bands round 239 : "Alone in the Wilderness"

Lyrics:

I wake up to a new dawn and I'm not altogether pleased
The world I find myself in is different to how it seemed
Everyone was telling me how I was meant to live
What I had to do to grow, what I should be willing to give
If I were but a caterpillar, crawling by and by
Would you cast me out if I refused to become a butterfly?
I'm no long lost son, I'm no long forgotten daughter
I'm stuck as I am, lost in a valley near water

I have no tale worth telling
Nor have I a tail to show
No shellder shall feast on me
To evolve me into a slowbro

You call me an outcast
You treat me like I'm a joke
I've made my home in solitude
Forever a Slowpoke

But what's so wrong about loving who you are?
What you call evolution, I call straight up bizarre
I'm glad I never grew a tail, I choose to stay as me
You think that I won't grow up, but I'm the one who's free

And so I left my old life, left the snickers and the japes
I sought out the wilderness with the hillsides and the lakes
Alone is where I'm happy and where I feel at peace
No longer will I have to feel the harsh choke of your leash

I have no tale worth telling
So you treat me like I'm a joke
No shellder shall feast on me
Forever a Slowpoke

I have no tale worth telling
Nor have I a tail to show
No shellder shall feast on me
To evolve me into a slowbro
You call me an outcast
You treat me like I'm a joke
I've made my home in solitude
Forever a Slowpoke
[Exit]
