Artist's Description

Watercolour done on Visual 200gsm watercolour with a textured back-ground by GHOSTBONES
.
Sometimes I think we may feel that we have to do the big things in life to stand out from the crowd, when all you have to do is be yourself…. like this little daisy….
.
Mother said stand up straight,
Don’t let your classmates make you feel like you don’t belong.
So you’re not like the rest of them,
someday the best of them, will realize they were wrong.
But in my world, different meant lonely,
the last place I wanted to be, was

CHORUS:
Standing out in a crowd,
Where the spotlight finds you, and singles you out.
What are they whispering about?
Thinking up ways to take up less space,
Can’t see the grace in it,
Standing out in a crowd.

Too short, too tall, flower against the wall,
The last one chosen to play.
Too smart, too dumb, too strange a place to be from,
Same shoes everyday.
With all these ways to be different,
Then maybe that’s how you fit in, by

It’s funny how now, it’s not such a bad place to be,
Standing out in a crowd
Standing out in a crowd.

CHORUS:
Standing out in a crowd,
Where the spotlight finds you and singles you out.
What are they whispering about?
Thinking up ways to take up less space,
There’s no escaping it,
Standing out in a crowd.
