Stay Down

by Phoebe Bridgers

Phoebe Bridgers (born August 17, 1994) is an American musician from Pasadena, California.




Wasn't a fighter 'til somebody told me
I had better learn to lean into the punch
So I don't hurt as bad when they leave
There you were, turning your cheek

I look at you and you look at a screen
I'm in the back seat of my body
I'm just steering my life in the video game
Similar accent, a different name
It's a slow down

So would you teach me I'm the villain
Aren't I, aren't I the one?
Constantly repenting for a difficult mind
Push me down into the water like a sinner
Hold me under and I'll never come up again
I'll just stay down

It's a half-life
It's a fallout
It takes so long for me to settle down
And when I finally do there's no one else around
So I stay down
So I stay down
So I stay down
So I stay down
So I stay down
