I am not your typical girl
Throw away that picture in your head
I am not your typical girl
Work harder, now, work harder
(Running from myself) I am not your typical girl
(I come undone) throw away that picture in your head
(Running from myself) I am not your typical girl
(I come undone) work harder, now, work harder

Work, work
Work, work

Oh
Oh, I'm different, I'm a cup of mild sauce
Sweet tongue, but don't get me in a paper cut
I'll fight you with my eyes, oh, when they call me shy
They just frightened of what's in my mind (mind)
These great-greats won't let me lie
Midnight eyes wide feels like I'm at the riverside
Great greats come down, they whisper to me quiet
"I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive"

I am not your typical girl
Throw away that picture in your head
I am not your typical girl
Work harder, now, work harder
(Running from myself) I am not your typical girl
(I come undone) throw away that picture in your head
(Running from myself) I am not your typical girl
(I come undone) work harder, now, work harder

Work, work
Work, work
Work, work

What 
What is it with you independent men? It's always something
Threatening your masculine energy, you think it's fleeting
Nothing you ain't give to me I can take away from you now
Let me be, I'm trying to fly, you, insist on clipping my wings

(Running from myself) I am not your typical girl
(I come undone) throw away that picture in your head
(Running from myself) I am not your typical girl
(I come undone) work harder, now, work harder
(Running from myself) I am not your typical girl
(I come undone) throw away that picture in your head
(Running from myself) I am not your typical girl
(I come undone) work harder, now, work harder

Running from myself (girl)
I come undone (head)
I wait, I try
