Clipboard

There’s a man who follows me ’round with a clipboard
.    Takes off points when I mess up
All day long, they come off wrong, I come on strong
.   And at night, I have to ‘fess up

What I wouldn’t give for 24 hours in a row
Without the need to apologise
What I wouldn’t take to be sure I’m not alone
To look the clipboard man in the eyes

There’s a sign hanging over my head like a verdict
.    Too uneven, not parallel
No relent, constant repent, can’t pay this rent
.    Bar keeps moving closer to hell

What I wouldn’t give for 24 hours in a row
Without the need to apologise
What I wouldn’t take to be sure I’m not alone
To look the clipboard man in the eyes

And blink
And breathe
And think
At ease
