Please Explain

Words and music by Catie Curtis

Please explain

Is it real life yet?

You told me that the trouble

Is I’m living in a bubble…

If I lose my friendships

If I lose my home

If I leave everything behind for the unknown

If there’s a trembling

And I am thrown

Will I float like a leaf or sink like a stone?

Please explain

Is it real life yet?

You told me that the trouble

Is I’m living in a bubble

And it feels so strange

But I need to let my eyes open wide

Let my heart decide

Through all these changes,

All these changes

If I lose my money, If I lose my time

If I lose everything that I put on the line

Looking for answers, what if I find

That I shouldn’t have trusted myself this time

Please explain

Is it real life yet?

You told me that the trouble

Is I’m living in a bubble

And it feels so strange

But I need to let my eyes open wide

Let my heart decide

Through all these changes,

All these changes

There’s a river inside me

Running strong

In the flow that’s where I belong

But I’m afraid

So I hold on

I can’t turn back and I can’t move along

Please explain

Is it real life yet?

You told me that the trouble

Is I’m living in a bubble

And it feels so strange

But I need to let my eyes open wide

Let my heart decide

Through all these changes,

All these changes
