lyrics

You say I'm a sweet girl
I don't know about that
I got blood on my teeth and ashes in my backpack
Siphons for fingers and splinters in my mind
You say I'm a sweet girl
Boy you tell a sweet lie

I don't make it easy
for anyone to know me
I got too many sides all mixed up and conflicting
You thought I was a loner 'til one day I asked you out
No I don't make it easy
and I can't take it back now

My walls are barren white
My clothes are mostly plain
I don't step out of line
I'm not on display

The next time I see you
I'll wish that I could tell you
I don't blame you at all
but I know that won't get through
You'll go on thinking that I'm nice but unaware
So next time I see you
I'll be staying in here
