LYRICS

Annie's been Annie for long enough now
She knows what she will and she won't
Sometimes she's gonna be up when you're down
she's gonna know things that you don't
All of the world isn't here just for you
Annie being Annie doesn't make you less you
She's got her own baggage, she doesn't need your's too

Annie doesn't need your luck
Annie doesn't need your worry
Annie doesn't hate your guts
But she does need you to get up and get out of her way

Do you ever think you're holding her down
Do you ever even think to ask why
If you yourself are stuck on the ground
Are you terrified that she could fly?
Maybe it's time you take a look at yourself
Annie's not a trophy you can put on your shelf
She's pulling you through life you're putting her through hell

Annie doesn't need your luck
Annie doesn't need your worry
Annie doesn't hate your guts
But she does need you to get up and get out of her way

I have to ask, as a friend, a friend to both of you so when
you hold her close and keep her near is it love....or is it fear.
I have to say it because you have to know
You only get to keep her if you let her go

Good Morning John. I'm headed out on tour next week! So expect some travel vlogging. All the shows are all ages, and tickets are around twenty dollars, and somebody asked me on Tumblr "What is the difference between Hank Green, and Hank Green and the Perfect Strangers?" It's pretty simple. It's more fun to play music with a band, and I think it's more fun to listen to music with a band. And so, some of my friends got together, and we made a band! But we play the same old Hank Green songs, you'll hear Deathly Hallows, and Anglerfish, and Strange Charm, and also some newer songs like I Love Science, and Oh, J. K. Rowling, and We Are All Bat People. And even some songs that we have never before performed live together, like We're All Gonna Die, which is a song I recently released, and also, this song right here. Surprise! New song!

"Annie's been Annie for long enough now,
She knows what she will and she won't.
Sometimes she's gonna be up when you're down.
She's gonna know things that you don't.

And all of the world isn't here just for you.
Annie being Annie doesn't make you less you.
She's got her own baggage,
She doesn't need yours too.

And Annie doesn't need your luck.
Annie doesn't need your worry.
And Annie doesn't hate your guts,
But she does need you to get up and get out of her way.

Do you ever think you're holding her down?
Do you ever even think to ask why?
If you, my friend, are stuck on the ground,
Are you terrified that she could fly?

Oh, maybe it's time you take a look at yourself.
Annie's not a trophy you can keep on your shelf.
She's pulling you through life,
You're putting her through Hell.

Oh, Annie doesn't need your luck.
Annie doesn't need your worry.
And Annie doesn't hate your guts,
But she does need you to get up and get out of her way.

I have to ask, as a friend,
A friend to both of you,
So when you hold her close and keep her near,
Is that love, or is it fear?

I have to ask because you have to know,
You only get to keep her if you let her go.
Oh, let her go, let her go.
Let her go.

'Cause Annie doesn't need your luck.
And Annie doesn't need your worry.
And Annie doesn't hate you guts,
But she does need you to get up and get out of her way.

Yeah, oh get up and get out of her way, boy,
Get up and get out of her way.
Get up and get out of her way."

Getting ready to go on tour has involved lots of work. I have been quite tired, and recently, I got home from work, and I grabbed some Peanut M&Ms, which are my favorite, and I went and I laid down on my couch.

So, I wake up a half hour later, and in my mouth is a half-eaten M&M. It was a weird sensation and flavor, but I ate it! And that's the whole story. I just wanted to tell you that one.

So we have been having some trouble selling as many tickets as we would like to on tour. This is kind of strange, 'cause like with Kansas, we're doing amazing! But in Los Angeles, where there are more people than Kansas, we're doing not as well. So if you are in Austin, San Diego, Los Angeles, Anaheim, or San Francisco, and you're considering maybe coming to the show, consider it hard.

I'm super excited about it. I hope you will be too. For me, concerts have always been something that causes me a lot of anxiety. Like, going to shows always freaked me out, but also those shows are some of my most precious memories, and we strive to be that for the people that come to our show.

And there's one thing that always kind of bugs me about concerts. When I go, I kind of want to know as many of the songs as I can, 'cause it's more fun if I'm like, singing along, having a good time. But you never know what they're gonna play. So I have put together a limited, but not complete, set list of some of the songs we're going to be playing, if you would like to know what those are in advance, as part of my general strategy to get rid of this conception that you have to be the smartest, most knowledgeable person who knows everything about the band and the act. No! Just have a good time! It's not about looking cool!

And that's it! Coming to you straight from the mouth that once had an M&M in it for a whole half an hour. John, I'll see you on Tuesday.
