Cowboy
by Alma

Album: Single release only (2018)
  • All I saw was eyeballs lookin' at me sideways
    Blurring out my lover's face
    Hoping we would die young, drinking like your last day
    Letting it all go to waste
    Smoking every dollar, hanging on a last laugh
    That was all we fucking had
    The town was even smaller
    Then what made them mad
    I'm never going back to that

    I still got lovin' for ya
    But only some of you, yeah yeah
    Already said all of my last goodbyes
    I think about you, mama
    I think about you, daddy
    While I start these fires

    I'm a cowboy
    Oh, yeah
    Yeah, yeah
    I'm a cowboy
    Oh, yeah
    Yeah, yeah
    I'm a cowboy, remember my name
    Remember my name
    And where I came from
    Cowboy
    Oh, yeah
    Yeah, yeah

    Honest as a virgin, pissin' holy water
    Swear I've never felt so free
    I taste it in your body, see it in your anger
    I know that you feel like me

    I still got lovin' for ya
    But only some of you, yeah yeah
    Already said all of my last goodbyes
    I think about you, mama
    I think about you, daddy
    While I start these fires

    I'm a cowboy
    Oh, yeah
    Yeah, yeah
    I'm a cowboy
    Oh, yeah
    Yeah, yeah
    I'm a cowboy, remember my name
    Remember my name
    And where I came from
    Cowboy
    Oh, yeah
    Yeah, yeah

    Never stop, never stop fallin' apart
    But it doesn't really hit so hard
    Thick skin, dark mind and a broken heart
    But it doesn't really hit so hard
    Anymore
    Anymore
    Anymore

    'Cause I'm a motherfucking cowboy
    Oh, yeah
    Yeah, yeah
    I'm a motherfucking cowboy
    Oh, yeah
    Yeah, yeah
    I'm a cowboy, remember my name
    Remember my name (remember my name)
    And where I came from
    Cowboy
    Oh, yeah
    Yeah, yeah

    I'm a cowboy
    Oh, yeah
    Yeah, yeah
    I'm a cowboy (cowboy), remember my name
    Remember my name
    And where I came from Writer/s: Alma-Sofia Miettinen, Eren Cannata, Justin Tanter, Sarah Hudson, Mike Tucker
