Lyrics

12 years old sick in mom and dad’s bed
Watching romcoms on repeat till they live in her head
With their narrative of happily ever after instead
Of the real life she’d find a little later

But by high school she figured, she’d figure it out
Every teenager’s ripe to navigate doubt
But left wondering when someday she might be allowed
To disbunk the fate she feared would await her

So by now she’s tired
Cause by now she’s trying
To pretend that she buys into something that died in her
The first night she cried herself to sleep

Now she’s tossing back shots with her sister in white
Using whiskey to shield from what sounds so polite
Are you here all alone? Where’s your kid? Where’s your life?
In the hot seat society had made her

So she heads home to stare at the brick in her hands
A remote control shackle for love on demand
Losing sleep as she thumbs through a sea of despair
Wondering why Aphrodite’d betrayed her

And by now she’s tired
Cause by now she’s trying
To pretend that she buys into something that died in her
The first night she cried herself to sleep

Maybe love’s an unfair expectation today
In a world so removed from our golden age ways
So when’s the right time to let the young girl’s dream decay
Just say it’s ok, it’s ok, it’s ok

So by now she’s tired
Cause by now she’s trying
To pretend that she buys into something that died in her
The first night she cried herself to sleep

And by now she’s tired
Of feeling alone but constantly trying
To pretend that she buys into love and a life
That isn’t spent wishing the worst worst away
