Debbie Downer

Album: Sometimes I Just Sit And Think And Sometimes I Just Sit (2015)
  • Tell me when you're getting bored and I'll leave
    I'm not the one who put the chain around your feet
    I'm sorry for all of my insecurities, but they're just a part of me
    Envy is thin because it bites but never eats
    That's what a nice old Spanish lady once told me
    Hey Debbie-Downer turn that frown upside down and just be happy

    I don't ask too much of you
    It's true and I can't read your mind

    Don't stop listening, I'm not finished yet
    I'm not fishing for your compliments

    I'm growing older every time I blink my eyes
    Boring, neurotic, everything that I despise
    We had some lows, we had some mids, we had some highs
    Sell me all your golden rules and I'll see
    If that's the kind of person that I wanna be
    If I'm not happy I'll be glad I kept receipts

    I don't ask too much of you
    I use to wonder what to wear

    Don't stop listening, I'm not finished yet
    I'm not fishing for your compliments
    Don't stop listening, I'm not finished yet
    I'm not fishing for your compliments

    Don't stop listening, I'm not finished yet
    I'm not fishing for your compliments
    Don't stop listening, I'm not finished yet
    I'm not fishing for your compliments

    Don't stop listening, I'm not finished
    Don't stop listening, I'm not finished
    Don't stop listening, I'm not finished
    I'm not finished Writer/s: Courtney Barnett
