I’m new here – Gil Scott Heron


gil scott heronI did not become someone different
I did not want to be

But I’m new here
Will you show me around?
No matter how far wrong you’ve gone
You can always turn around

 

No, no, no, no

I did not become someone different
I did not want to be

But Im new here
Will you show me around?
No matter how far wrong you’ve gone
You can always turn around

Met a woman in a bar
I told her I was hard to get to know
And near impossible to forget
She said I had an ego on me, the size of Texas

Well, Im new here and I forget
Does that mean big or small?
No matter how far wrong you’ve gone
You can always turn around

And Im shedding plates like a snake
And it may be crazy
But Im the closest thing I have
To a voice of reason

Turn around, turn around, turn around
And you may come full circle
And be new here again
