Boyfriends and their trophy girls
The only way to get by in this world
And I think you’re so interesting
They’re telling me to fall in line, beautify
And then I’ll be just fine
Your smile’s electricity

How would you feel if you had no personality?
How would you know if you took the chance and let it go?

Chorus: I’m playing dumb for a different meaning
You just blow me away
The real reason that I cannot speak
Nothing else I could say
Is this what I should do to make you love me?
Playing dumb, playing society

Pull down your shirt and stand up straight
Little girl, then you’ll be on your way
You’re so cool and confident
Giggle, laugh, try to be cute
You’d do it if you knew what’s good for you
Oh, you must be heaven sent

How would you act if you’re always under attack?
How would you know if you took the chance and let it go?


Even if I didn’t have the right to speak my mind
It wouldn’t matter ‘cause the words are hard to find



from Strike a Match, released April 23, 2016
