The second single off Haley Bowery & the Manimals upcoming full-length release, Born Strange.

lyrics

She's so much younger than me
She's got the body I need
She's got command of the room
She's gonna have it all soon

I can be twisted and mean
I am afraid to be seen
I disappear in my beer
I say what you want to hear

I'd leave it all on the line
Got a titanium spine, I'm a tightrope walker
I'm the one who drew the route
I've got no doubts
I am some big talker, huh

It's all lies
I've got the better part of half a mind
To just hide in fear
Honestly I don't know what I'm doing here
Time never goes slow
So I'll watch the world, safe, from my window

He says til death do us part
Why should I question his heart
He wonders when I'll be happy
I wonder if it's even in the cards for me

In my dreams I'm brave and brazen
Laughing in the face of reason
And when I see that self on TV
She's superhuman, gorgeous, skinny

She'd leave it all on the line
Got a titanium spine, she's a tightrope walker
She's the one who drew the route
She's got no doubts
She is some big talker, huh

It's all lies
I've got the better part of half a mind
To just hide in fear
Honestly I don't know what I'm doing here
Time never goes slow
So I'll watch the world, safe, from my window

I'd leave it all on the line
Got a titanium spine, I'm a tightrope walker
I'm the one who drew the route
I've got no doubts
I am some big talker, huh

It's all lies
I hit the ground, grab at the sky
I trust, I fear
I make more mistakes every year
Time never goes slow
Before you know, you are grown
