Cheerleader

Album: Strange Mercy (2011)
  • I've had good times
    With some bad guys
    I've told whole lies
    With a half smile
    Held your bare bones
    With my clothes on
    I've thrown rocks
    Then hid both my arms

    I don't know what good it serves
    Pouring my purse in the dirt

    But I-I-I-I-I don't wanna be your cheerleader no more
    I-I-I-I-I don't wanna be your cheerleader no more

    I've played dumb
    When I knew better
    Tried too hard
    Just to be clever
    I know honest thieves
    I call family
    I've seen America
    With no clothes on

    But I-I-I-I-I don't wanna be a cheerleader no more
    I-I-I-I-I don't wanna be a cheerleader no more

    I don't know what I deserve
    But for you I could work

    'Cause I don't wanna be a cheerleader no more
    I don't wanna be a cheerleader no more
    I don't wanna be a cheerleader no more
    I don't wanna be a dirt eater no more
    I don't wanna be a dirt eater no more
    I don't wanna be a cheerleader no more Writer/s: Anne Clark
