Cool – Ilana Charnelle

From the album Play Nice (2018).

Mmm, mmm
I’ve always liked things I shouldn’t
And I’ve always loved when other girls wouldn’t
I don’t wanna say I was biding my time
But I’ve always thought that you could be mine

But hey now, I’m speeding ahead
He said no, so I’ll put it to bed
So sick of dipping my toes in the water
Just to watch you all end up with each other

I’ll take my words, cut them to pieces
Throw ’em on the floor, pretend I’m a genius
If I liked rock and roll, or my hair was real red
You’d call me your cool girl, you’d see me again

But hey now, I’m speeding ahead
He said no, so I’ll put it to bed
So sick of dipping my toes in the water
Just to watch you all end up with each other, yeah

I’ll take my words, cut them to pieces
Throw ’em on the floor, it’s Bowie, it’s genius
You’re leather-edged sadness, you’re, you’re rock and roll cool
I’ll stick with my madness, at least I know the rules

But hey now, I’m speeding ahead
He said no, so I’ll put it to bed
So sick of dipping my toes in the water
Just to watch you all end up with each other
Yeah
End up with each other
End up with each other, yeah
End up with e, end up with each other
