Tough Guys

Album: Bare Feet (2018)
  • I'm selfish if I please myself
    I'm good if I please you
    I'm a rebel if I don't fit in the box
    I'm a talent if I do

    I'm ignorant to your hypocrite
    Naive to your experience
    Well oops, but I don't give shit
    'Cause I ain't waitin' on you to approve

    'Cause I got all the love that my heart can give
    Tidal wave that you can't hold back
    Courage is all dreams need to live
    Your fiction is my fact

    Tough guys wantin' this girl to play nice
    I don't mean to play rough, guys
    I'm just trusting my gut, guys
    I think I threaten these tough guys
    'Cause I'm in love with my own life
    And I've heard enough lies
    If it makes you cry
    If it makes you cry
    Well that's just tough, guys

    I'm smart if I ask a question
    That you know the answer to
    I'm an airy fairy hippie if I ask
    Why we can't do something brand new

    It's comical to see the quizzical
    Looks upon your face
    As you blame me 'cause I'm crazy
    But it's you who can't keep pace with
    All the love that my heart can give
    Like a tidal wave that you can't hold back
    Courage is all dreams need to live
    Your fiction is my fact

    Tough guys wantin' this girl to play nice
    I don't mean to play rough, guys
    I'm just trusting my gut, guys
    I think I threaten these tough guys
    'Cause I'm in love with my own life
    And I've heard enough lies
    If it makes you cry
    If it makes you cry
    Well that's just tough, guys
    Kick it

    Listen

    Does it make you cry
    Does it make you cry
    Does it make you cry?
    Does it make you cry
    Does it make you cry
    Does it make you cry?
    Does it make you cry
    Does it make you cry?
    Does it make you cry, baby, make you cry?

    Tough guys wantin' this girl to play nice
    I don't mean to play rough, guys
    I'm just trusting my gut, guys
    I think I threaten these tough guys
    'Cause I'm in love with my life
    And I've heard enough lies
    If it makes you cry
    If it makes you cry
    Well sorry, but that's just tough, guys Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
