Favorite Quotes and Lyrics #6

It has just occurred to me that over all the weeks of doing this quotes and lyrics part of my blog, I have never explained the quote that I named my blog after!  A travesty!  So here we go:
I can try to get by
But every time I start to panic
I’m a little bit shy
A bit strange and a little bit manic
So there you are!  It’s a lyric from the song Wishing Well by Blink 182, from there latest album Neighbourhoods, which I don’t believe got the recognition it deserved.  I’ve been in love (see obsessed) with Blink 182 since I picked up Take Off Your Pants and Jacket at the age of 14.  They were a huge influence on my teenage years.  They were the first band I ever booked to see and the second band I ever saw live.  I saw them again twice last year and still had as much fun as ever, it’s like stepping into a time warp for me, makes me feel young again.  
These lyrics in particular stood out to me because it describes me so well, shy, strange and manic.  So the rest, as they say, is history 🙂

Check out the song here:
