Cool – Ilana Charnelle

From the album Play Nice (2018).

I’ve always liked things I shouldn’t
And I’ve always loved like 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
I’m 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 into pieces
Throw them 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
I’m 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 into pieces
Throw them on the floor, it’s Bowie, it’s genius
You’re leather-edged sadness, you’re rock and roll cool
I’ll stick to 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
I’m so sick of dipping my toes in the water
Just to watch you all end up with each other
End up with each other
End up with each other
End up with each other
With each other
