I am exceptional
I am an exception
I am the exception
That's for me, that's also for me
I am a contradiction
I'm fascinating
Not enough, too much
Tell me I'm special
They might look like me but they don't know
Man, I wanna take you home
Oh, the relaxation I feel here
Oh, the relaxation I feel most everywhere
Except the places I don't go
Except the places I don't go

Oh, don't trust me
That I won't take all the money and run
Don't trust me
That I won't take all the money and run
Oh, I'm just a shell of myself
I might just take all the money and run
I don't wanna be a woman if it's permission
Like it's permission

Now as then
I know then as now, oh
Now as then
I know then as now, oh
I know I'm not to be trusted

She had this thing with her shoulders
Couldn't sleep on either side
Face-up to the ceiling, nowhere to hide
Oh, she has this thing with her shoulders
Can't sleep on either side
Face-up to the ceiling, nowhere to hide
Oh, she is speaking to me, speaking right to me
They're all speaking right to me, speaking my language
It's all in my language, a universal language, and I am loved, I am loved
I am loved in every single tongue

Oh, don't trust me
That I won't take all the money and run
Don't trust me
That I won't take all the money and run
Now I'm a blank, I'm drawing a blank
I might just take all the money and run
I don't wanna be a woman
If it means not being human

Now as then
I know then as now, oh
Now as then
I know then as now, oh
Now as then
I know then as now, oh
Now as then, oh
I know I'm not to be trusted

Now, now, now, now, oh
Now, now, oh what if I don't feel it
Now, now, now, now

Now as then
Then as now
