ricky lyrics – john frusciante

i was afraid to be me
be anyone you want to be
i don’t blame my weak
for my not being able to speak
clearly about things i’ve said before
and if it’s light outside night will fall
and if it’s life it resolves
anywhere you are in a maze is a lie
anywhere you are on a page you still go to the right
anytime there’s no ground below you you’re in the sky
anytime you’re afraid it’s gonna be alright
it’s gonna be alright

i was a flame in the night
i heard what i wanted to hear
and the moment i disappeared
i grew the size of all outside
’cause i became one with the night
and if it’s real it’s not all
there is
there’s a lot in what appears not to be there at all
and you can function as someone besides who you are
