Be Your Own Girl
I know you're tired of waking up on the floor Pushed to the edge with nothing heavy to hold Using your clothes as a blanket and a bed Holding your hands just to lay your head I know you don't remember ever falling down Who picked you up, who gathered around But you don't have to be his girl And you don't have to be my girl You can always be your own girl With the sound of your feet you follow yourself to sleep Restless and ageless and looking for somethin' to keep When you finally fall asleep you're awake in dreams Hanging by the ankles in a skeleton ravine I know you've kicked the lights, fell on your shoes Punched out the colors, leaving you the blues But you don't have to be his girl And you don't have to be my girl You can always be your own girl There's a soft melody that's ringing in my ears Simple and slow and it always brings you here With broken crayons you've scribbled on the wall Shapes of nothing and shadow box them all Your fingertips are broke and your knees don't bend Your imagination took the worst hit and cut it's skin But you don't have to be his girl You don't have to be my girl You can always be your own girl There's a soft melody that's ringing in my ears And it's the same one you could never avoid in yours And if you lay down you can hear from tongue to tails About a tattooed rhythm and drumming by color wheel Your rung is broken on the bottom of the rope And you can't tie another, another knot of hope And you don't have to be his girl And you don't have to be my girl You can always be your own girl
