Lyrics

So tell me this is who you are
But, tell me I've got something worse
And oh, you could be loved
But I don't want the lies to find me
When I'm dark and lost but never on my own

'Cause I just wanna swing like Sinatra
Singing like I can't stop
'Cause I can never rock like a Rolling Stone

I just wanna live like the ones before, yeah
And maybe I could play guitar like Hendrix
Or save the world or end it
And maybe they'll remember me when I'm gone
It's all I could ever want

It's all I want

So I got ten minutes to be all or nothing
To whoever wants to hear
And I got ten weeks to talk bullshit on repeat until I'm burned out and disappear
But I owe you nothing
And I own my life

So you'll say you'll never be alone again
But I don't think you understand me or what I fear
But you could be loved
But I don't wanna lie to tell myself
I'm more than all the mistakes I've outrun
I'm only here for a minute
But I don't care what you say
'Cause I know you're only here 'cause I'm winning

But I can be my own kind of rock and roll
I don't really care if you say you don't fuck with me

And I can say what the fuck I want 'cause it's down to me
And I got love for you even if you were doubting me
Like, oh my God, I just can't stop

'Cause I just wanna sing like Sinatra
With ethanol on my soundtrack
'Cause I can never rock like a Rolling Stone
And wonder how it feels to burnout young
'Cause I just wanna die before my heart fails
From heartbreak or cocktails

Then maybe you'll cry once you know I'm gone
It's all I could ever want

Oh, it's all I want, yeah

'Cause I ain't scared of livin'
(-Does it get easier?
-No...)
No I ain't scared of livin'
(...yes, It gets easier
-Oh yeah? Look at you)
No I ain't scared of livin'

'Cause it's all we got
What are we breathin' for if we ain't livin'?
And I don't want your love
I just wanna feel like I'm still livin'
And if there is no god
I know the day I die I've lived through heaven
And that I gave it hell
And if it hurt, oh well
At least that's living
(-The more you know who you are, and what you want...)
It's all I want
(...the less you let...
things upset you)
It's all I want
(- I just don't know what I'm supposed to be... you know?
I tried being a writer but... uh
I hate what I write... and... uh...
I tried taking pictures... uh... but...
They're so mediocre, you know?
And every... girl goes through a photography phase...
You know like horses...
And take uh... dumb pictures of your feet...
-You'll figure that out... hm
I'm not worried about you...)
