  • I don't mind
    Lettin' you down easy but just give it time
    If it don't hurt now, but just wait, just wait a while
    You're not the big fish in the pond no more
    You are what they're feedin' on

    So what are you gonna do
    When the world don't orbit around you?
    So what are you gonna do
    When the world don't orbit around you?

    Ain't it fun
    Livin' in the real world?
    Ain't it good
    Bein' all alone?

    Where you're from
    You might be the one who's runnin' things
    Well, you can ring anybody's bell and get what you want
    See, it's easy to ignore trouble
    When you're livin' in a bubble

    So what are you gonna do
    When the world don't orbit around you?
    So what are you gonna do
    When nobody wants to fool with you?

    Ain't it fun
    Livin' in the real world?
    Ain't it good
    Bein' all alone?
    Ain't it good to be on your own?
    Ain't it fun you can't count on no one?
    Ain't it good to be on your own?
    Ain't it fun you can't count on no one?
    Ain't it fun
    Livin' in the real world?

    Don't go cryin' to your mama
    'Cause you're on your own in the real world
    Don't go cryin' to your mama
    'Cause you're on your own in the real world
    Don't go cryin' to your mama
    'Cause you're on your own in the real world
    Don't go cryin' to your mama
    'Cause you're on your own in the real world

    Ain't it fun? Ain't it fun?
    Baby, now you're one of us
    Ain't it fun? Ain't it fun?
    Ain't it fun?

    Ain't it fun
    Livin' in the real world?
    Ain't it good, ain't it good
    Bein' all alone?
    Ain't it fun
    Livin' in the real world?
    ('Cause the world don't orbit around you)
    Ain't it good, ain't it good
    Bein' all alone?

    Don't go cryin' to your mama (now to your mama)
    'Cause you're on your own in the real world (don't go cryin')
    Don't go cryin' to your mama (to your mama)
    'Cause you're on your own (hey) in the real world (world)
    Don't go cryin' to your mama
    'Cause you're on your own, this is the real world
    Don't go cryin' to your mama (don't go cryin')
    'Cause you're on your own in the real world (this is the real world)
    Don't go cryin' (this is the real world) to your mama (don't go cryin')
    'Cause you're on your own in the real world
    Don't go cryin' (don't you cry) to your mama (to your mama)
    'Cause you're on your own ('cause you're on your own) in the real world
    Don't go cryin' (don't you go, don't you go cryin')
    Don't go cryin' (you're on your own)
    Don't go cryin' (don't go, don't go cryin' to your mama)
    Don't go cryin' (don't you cry) Writer/s: Hayley Nichole Williams, Taylor Benjamin York
