Wallflower Lyrics

2019 Off-Broadway
We Are the Tigers the Musical - Wallflower Lyrics


CAIRO:
Nobody remembers fourth grade Riley
She is harmless and shy and will never speak up
Cause she's scared to be wrong
Riley is a wallflower
The type of little kid who gets paralyzed with fear
When she gets called on

But who had your back when you had a heart attack
Cause the kids would start to laugh
When you st-st-st-st-stuttered
It was me who decided you could be so much more
Than they could see if I never saved you
W-w-w-w-what would you have done?
You would be no one
So forgive me for doing what's best for you
So forgive me for trying to
Make this easier
I'll always be on your team
You are nothing
You have nothing
Without me

RILEY:
Everyone remembers sophomore Cairo
Starting fights in the halls
Mouthing off in each class
Cause she'll never be wrong
Anything but wallflower
The type of high school kid who is rarely seen at parties
With her pants on

CAIRO:
But who has your back every single time you crack
When you don't cut yourself slack and you keep
C-c-c-c-crashing
See, it's me who's beside you
Constantly
Making sure you don't see
How much everyone is t-t-t-t-trashing us for fun
You could be no one

RILEY, CAIRO:
So forgive me for doing what's best for you
So forgive me for trying to
Make this easier
I'll always be on your team
You are nothing
You have nothing
Without me

CAIRO:
Who had your back when you

RILEY:
So forgive me for

CAIRO:
Had a heart attack cause

RILEY:
Doing what's best for you

CAIRO:
The kids would start to laugh when

RILEY:
So forgive me for

CAIRO:
You st-st-st-st-stutter. It was me

RILEY:
Trying to

CAIRO:
Who decided you could

RILEY:
Make this easier

CAIRO:
Be so much more than they

RILEY:
I'll always be on

CAIRO:
Could see

RILEY:
Your

CAIRO:
If I never saved you

RILEY:
Team

CAIRO:
W-w-w-w-

RILEY:
You are

CAIRO:
What would you have done?

RILEY:
Nothing, you have

CAIRO:
You would be no one

RILEY:
Without me

RILEY, CAIRO:
You are nothing, you have nothing
You are nothing, you have nothing
You are nothing, you have nothing
You are nothing, you have nothing
Without me

CAIRO:
Riley is a wallflower
