Pay No Mind

  • She was dancing, she was smiling
    Roses blooming in her cheeks
    In a quiet kind of litany
    She accepted some defeat
    And then she twirled into the arms
    Of disgrace, and then repelled
    Now, she's fallen to her knees
    But you couldn't ever tell

    And then, she asked me how we got here
    I told her, "I don't know!"
    And if you keep on asking
    I'll just keep saying so
    This isn't what I wanted
    It isn't what you need
    But let them keep on talking
    Just calm yourself, and pay

    Don't you pay them any mind
    Don't you pay them any mind
    You know this happens every time
    Now, don't you pay them any mind

    Let it burn, as if we'd bothered
    We'll make sound based on their eyes
    As she closes, just to open
    There's some sirens wailing by
    And as she's off to tell her secret
    To her friends somewhere in town
    And her friend just takes a moment
    And that's why I'm not around
    Darling, this is something
    I should have told you long ago
    I just want you to feel safe
    I just want to make you glow
    How you glowed when we were young
    There was nothing on our minds
    When you jump, for your love
    Baby, you're nothing long of time

    And then, she asked me how we got here
    I told her, "I don't know"
    And if you keep on asking
    I'll just keep saying so
    This isn't what I wanted
    It isn't what you need
    But let them keep on talking
    Just calm yourself, and pay

    Don't you pay them any mind
    Don't you pay them any mind
    You know this happens every time
    Now, don't you pay them any mind

    Why do we have to, go further every time?
    Some days you hear it (don't listen, I'll carry you)
    Some days you don't (to the universe we'll never go)
    Sometimes you feel it (it's not worth it, help me)
    Sometimes you won't
    Just calm yourself, and pay

    Don't you pay them any mind
    Don't you pay them any mind
    You know this happens every time
    Now, don't you pay them any mind

    Don't you pay them any mind
    Don't you pay them any mind
    You know this happens every time
    Now, don't you pay them any mind Writer/s: HUGO LECLERCQ, MICHAEL ANGELAKOS
