about

back on my eldest daughter bullshit :)

lyrics

I'm back on my eldest daughter bullshit
Drawn towards broken people like a magnet
Pull out my tool kit
Hammer you back into place
Proficient in tension headaches and white lies
Grind my teeth even at night
Draw lines in the sand
Just to watch them wash away

Want everyone to adore me even though
People's emotions are out of my control
Smothering fires
Letting flames claim my hands
I would do anything to be needed
Over and over again

I'm back on my routine loving bullshit
Pamper myself with meticulous habits
Cling to what I know like a golden safety net
(Ah)
Caffeine and praise like wind in my sails
Trying and failing to quit biting my nails
Keep moving to silence the voices in my head
(Mmm)

Want everyone to adore me even though
People's emotions are out of my control
Smothering fires
Letting flames claim my hands
I would do anything to be needed
Over and over again

Bring me your battled, your bruised, and scarred
Florence Nightingale to your broken hearts
Bring me your bleeding
I'll stitch it up with a bow
Tugging at the sword in the stone
The dormant hero in me is yet to be known
Dying to prove myself again but I don't know how
Wanna lay my weapons down
Lay my weapons down

Want everyone to adore me even though
People's emotions are out of my control
Smothering fires
Letting flames claim my hands
I would do anything to be needed
Over and over again
