  • I'm slowly turning into you, but you don't know this; I told the truth
    You say I'm lying and I never really tell you the truth
    But your face is getting older, so put your head on my shoulder
    Yeah, put your head on my shoulder

    Yesterday it hit me that I do all the little things that you do
    Except the same little things that you do are annoying
    They're annoying as Hell, in fact; it kinda struck a little bell, in fact
    I like to keep my little shell intact

    And I'm slowly turning into you
    And I'm slowly turning into you

    Then something else came to mind that was the mirror; it made everything clearer
    That you're more beautiful, compelling and stronger; it didn't take much longer
    Just for me to realize I love all the little things and the beauty that they're gonna bring
    I dig your little laugh, and I'm lovin' your quick wit; I even love it when you're faking it
    And it might sound a little strange for me to say to you, but I'm proud to be you

    And I'm slowly turning into you
    And I'm slowly turning into you
    And I'm slowly turning into you
    And I'm slowly turning into you Writer/s: JACK WHITE
