  • I'm twenty-one
    The edge is razor thin
    Between being numb
    And feeling everything
    Good days only serve as relief again

    Now I'm watching as I waste away my days
    And then
    It's a cross dissolve
    It's a scene I've played before
    And the leading role that I thought I'd hold
    Doesn't listen to me anymore

    But I'm wearing his boxers
    I'm being a good wife
    We won't be together
    But maybe the next life

    I need him like water
    He lives on a landslide
    I cry in his bathroom
    He turns off the big light

    I'm being the cool girl
    I'm keeping it so tight
    I carry him home while
    My friends have a good night

    I need him like water
    He thinks that I'm alright
    I'm not feeling human
    I think he's a good guy

    But it's complex
    It's a complex
    It's a complex
    I'm a complex

    Triangular
    I can see them now
    Three points at which
    I let myself down
    I was just a girl
    What's the excuse now?

    Too regular
    This pattern I've been taking shelter in
    Reaching new highs
    When I was nineteen I wanted to die

    Now I just want to kill you
    But I don't want to paint you the victim
    And I talk a good game
    I'd die for you just the promise you'd listen

    But I'm wearing his boxers
    I'm being a good wife
    We won't be together
    But maybe the next life

    I need him like water
    He lives on a landslide
    I cry in his bathroom
    He turns off the big light

    I'm being the cool girl
    I'm keeping it so tight
    I carry him home while
    My friends have a good night

    I need him like water
    He thinks that I'm alright
    I'm not feeling human
    I think he's a good guy

    But it's complex
    It's a complex
    It's a complex
    I'm a complex Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
