All my life
I’ve been fighting a war
I can’t talk to you or your friends
It’s not only you
My heart jumps around when I’m eluded to
This will not do

'Cause I was raised up to be admired
To be noticed
But when you’re withdrawn
It’s the closest thing
To a someone who lies around you
This will not do

I’m thinking glory
Lick my lips, toss my hair
And send a smile over
And the story’s brand new
I can take it from here,
I’ll find my own bravado

It’s a switch flipped
It’s a pill tipped back
It’s a moon eclipsed
And I can tell you that, when the lights come on I’ll be ready for this
It’s in your bloodstream
A collision of atoms that happens before your eyes
It’s a marathon run or a mountain you scale without thinking of size
I was fighting off every little thing that I thought was out to get me down
To trip me up and laugh at me
But I look not to hold
The quiet of the room with no one around to find me out
I want the applause the approval the things that make me go oh

It’s a switch flipped
It’s a pill tipped back
It’s a moon eclipsed
And I can tell you that, when the lights come on I’ll be ready for this
It’s in your bloodstream
A collision of atoms that happens before your eyes
It’s a marathon run or a mountain you scale without thinking of size
I was fighting off every little thing that I thought was out to get me down
To trip me up and laugh at me
But I look not to hold
The quiet of the room with no one around to find me out
I want the applause the approval the things that make me go oh
