  • Dancing with my girls, only having two drinks then leaving
    It's a funny thing, thought you'd never gain self control
    Guess it's been a while since you last said sorry
    Crying in the dark at your best friends' parties
    You've had enough, gotta turn the lights up, go home

    Couldn't wait to turn fifteen
    Then you blink and it's been ten years
    Growing up a little at a time then all at once
    Everybody wants the best for you
    But you gotta want it for yourself
    My love

    You can take 'em if you want 'em, these are just
    Secrets from a girl, who's seen it all
    Secrets from a girl, who's seen it
    Secrets from a girl
    Secrets from a girl, who's seen it all
    Secrets from a girl (secrets from a girl)
    Secrets from a girl, who's seen it all

    'Member all the hurt you would feel when you weren't desired?
    (Doing anything for more touch)
    'Member what you thought was grief before you got the call?
    Baby girl, no one's gonna feel the pain for you
    You're gonna love again, so just try staying open
    And when the time comes, you'll fall
    Yeah, when the time comes, you'll fall

    Your dreams and inner visions, all your mystical ambitions
    They won't let you down
    Do your best to trust all the rays of light
    Everybody wants the best for you
    But you gotta want it for yourself
    My love

    Couldn't wait to turn fifteen, then you just go
    (Whoosh)
    Secrets from a girl, who's seen it all
    Secrets from a girl, who's seen it all
    Secrets from a girl
    Secrets from a girl, who's seen it all
    Secrets from a girl (secrets from a girl)
    Secrets from a girl, who's seen it all

    Welcome to sadness
    The temperature is unbearable until you face it
    Thank you for flying with Strange Airlines
    I will be your tour guide today
    Your emotional baggage can be picked up at carousel number 2
    Please be careful so that it doesn't fall onto someone you love
    When we've reached your final destination
    I will leave you to it
    You'll be fine
    I'm just gonna show you in
    And you can stay as long as you need
    To get familiar with the feeling
    And then when you're ready, I'll be outside
    And we can go look at the sunrise
    By euphoria mixed with existential vertigo?
