Intro
Intro (Spoken as an intro to "I'm Sensitive")

Okay, I gotta think about it. I was really bummed when I wrote this.
Because it's funny, when you grow up in a place like Alaska it's so
beautiful and it's really easy to have some faith, you know what I
mean? And faith after all is what carries you through, like, the
darkest of days. You just have to believe time will pass, somehow the
tide will come back in and I won't feel so incredibly shitty tomorrow.
And it's hard 'cause like people lose faith, you know, when you're
surrounded by crime and murder and pollution everyday. But it's really
what like makes everything okay. And I think if we could just be...
(Jewel starts talking to an audience member)
Shut up I'm talking. That was obnoxious girl. I was kidding. God, I'm
insulting people. (laughter)
So anyway I just thought maybe if we could be surrounded in beauty
we'd become what we see. 'Cause all we're told in the news is how evil
we are and how racist we are and all these things.


I'm Sensitive

I was thinking that I might fly today
Just to disprove all the things that you say
It doesn't take a talent to be mean
You words can crush things that are unseen

So please be careful with me, I'm sensitive
And I'd like to stay that way

You always tell me that it's impossible
To be respected, and be a girl
Why's it gotta be so complicated
Why you gotta tell me if I'm hated

So please be careful with me, I'm sensitive
And I'd like to stay that way

I was thinking, that it might do some good
If we robbed the cynics and took all their food
That way what they believe will have taken place
And we can give it people who have some faith

So please be careful with me, I'm sensitive
And I'd like to stay that way

I have this theory, that if we're told we're bad
Then that's the only idea we'll ever have
But maybe if we are surrounded in beauty
Someday we will become what we see
'Cause anyone can start a conflict
it's harder yet to disregard it
I'd rather see the world from another angle
We are everyday angels
Be careful with me 'cause I'd like to stay that way
