lyrics

It's never a date that ends with a kiss and a hushed goodbye
Never waking up to a text with a clumsy "hey, I had a good time"
There's never more than meets their dark, dangerous eyes
That I fall into each time, not remembering why I should keep my feet on the ground

I always say he wasn't my type anyway
With a smile made of ice I list off why the flicker didn't turn into a flame
But they know that we both know I didn't end the chapter
It's always they who decide I'm not right to be a part of their ever after

CHORUS
I'm pretty great, pretty smart you'd think that's a start for something more
So tell me why I'm always the one left behind or the girl they settle
I'm pretty sure I'm doing all that I can to be the one who's on their mind
So tell me how I should change, how to act, how to look if you'd be so kind

I shouldn't give up, shouldn't seek love in every corner
I should let it go but don't lose hope, let it hit me like a storm
You can tell me that I'm free, that alone doesn't have to mean lonely
That I'm smart & strong, clever & strong, but then I guess I'm just not that pretty

CHORUS

(harmonise-y thingy)

It's never a date that ends with a kiss and a hushed goodbye
Never waking up to a text with a clumsy "hey, I had a good time"
