Just One of the Guys

Album: The Voyager (2014)
  • All our friends, they're gettin' on
    But the girls are still staying young
    If I get caught being rude in a conversation
    With a child bride on her summer vacation

    No matter how hard I try to be just one of the guys
    There's a little something inside that won't let me
    No matter how hard I try to have an open mind
    There's a little voice inside that prevents me

    Ooh, how I live it got me here
    Locked in this bathroom full of tears
    And I have begged for you & I have borrowed,
    But I've been the only sister to my own sorrow

    No matter how hard I try to be just one of the guys
    There's a little something inside that won't let me
    No matter how hard I try to have an open mind
    There's a little clock inside that keeps tickin'

    There's only one difference between you & me
    When I look at myself all I can see
    I'm just another Lady without a baby

    No matter how hard I try to be just one of the guys
    There's a little something inside that won't let me.
    No matter how hard I try to have an open mind
    There's a little cop inside that prevents me

    I'm not gonna break for you!
    I'm not gonna pray for you!
    I'm not gonna pay for you!
    That's not what ladies do!

    Oh when you break
    When you break
    Oh when you break Writer/s: Jenny Lewis
