Light Of Some Kind
Not A Pretty Girl 1995
Voir une traduction

I wish I didn't have this nervous laugh
I wish I didn't say half the stuff I say
I wish I could just learn to cover my tracks
I guess Iím not concerned about getting away
'cause every time I try to hold my tongue
it slips like a fish from a line
they say if you want to play
you should learn how to play dumb
I guess I can't bring myself to waste your time

'Cause we both know what i've been doing
i've been intentionally bad at lying
you're the only one I ever let see through me
and I hope you believe me when I say Iím trying
and I hope I never improve my game
yeah i'd rather have these things weighing on my mind
and at the end of this tunnel of guilt and shame
there must be a light of some kind
there must be a light of some kind

I must have blown a fuse or something
cause it was so dark in my mind
she came up to me with the sweetest face
and she was holding a light of some kind
and I still think of you as my boyfriend
I don't think this is the end of the world
but I think maybe you should follow my example
and go meet yourself a really nice girl

'Cause we both know what i've been doing
i've been intentionally bad at lying
you're the only boy I ever let see through me
and I hope you believe me when I say Iím trying
and I hope I never improve my game
yeah i'd rather have these things weighing on my mind
and at the end of this tunnel of guilt and shame
there must be a light of some kind
I want a light of some kind

In the end the world comes down to just a few people
but for you it comes down to one
but nobody ever asked me if I thought I could be
everything to someone
there's a crowd of people harbored in every person
there are so many roles that we play
and you've decided to love me for eternity
i'm still deciding who I want to be today

'Cause we both know what i've been doing
i've been intentionally bad at lying
you're the only boy I ever let see through me
and I hope you believe me when I say Iím trying
and I hope I never improve my game
yeah i'd rather have these things weighing on my mind
and at the end of this tunnel of guilt and shame
there must be a light of some kind
I want a light of some kind
I want a light of some kind
Give me a light of some kind
