  • Stupid girl
    How could you think
    That you could take those wings
    And fly so close to the sun
    Do you like to fall for fun

    Oh, stupid girl
    How dare you to try
    To bring your dark to the light
    To live your life undivided
    Take your unhappy and hide it

    You got to hold yourself back
    Put yourself last, never first
    Always make 'em laugh
    Say you're sorry
    Don't make it worse
    Take a deep breath
    Give 'em what
    They want and smile

    All my life
    I've tried to do what's right
    But I'm a leaver
    Who can't leave well enough alone
    I'm a seeker, an unholy rolling stone
    And I might be stupid
    But that stupid girl ain't wrong

    Stupid girl
    What else could you want
    How could you ask for something more
    With all the gifts you were given
    Ain't it enough to just be living

    You got to hold yourself back
    Put yourself last, never first
    Always make 'em laugh
    Say you're sorry
    Don't make it worse
    Take a deep breath
    Give 'em what
    They want and smile

    Oh, all my life
    I've tried to do what's right
    But I'm a leaver
    Who can't leave well enough alone
    I'm a seeker, an unholy rolling stone
    And I might be stupid
    But that stupid girl ain't wrong

    There are no answers without questions
    Even if they're wrong
    How else you gonna love all the lessons
    We only get this one trip
    Lose the fear, lose the grip
    And throw the lines from the ship
    And take it all my life

    Oh, all my life
    I've tried to do what's right
    But I'm a leaver
    Who can't leave well enough alone
    I'm a seeker, an unholy rolling stone
    And I might be stupid
    But that stupid girl ain't wrong
