Give me a year, I'll grow a bit older Lend me your ear, and I'll whisper your name but don't tell me a fear, or I'll run away I can't be too sure of tomorrow's today Although I've never seen a prettier day than this today. Hey, I'm a little chubby, but I like to wear crop tops I'm a little chubby and that's probably not gonna change I'm a little chubby, but I like to wear crop tops Hey I'm a little chubby, and it's only ever been this way. But I gotta know, whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do about it? whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do about it? whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do about it? whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do about it? Can't figure out how to work the damn thermostat. My hair looks like !!!!!! but I've never really rocked a hat And I can't breathe when I dream because I only have nightmares and I can't dream when I breathe because I never can do two things at the same time Hey, I'm a little chubby, but I like to wear crop tops I'm a little chubby and that's probably not gonna change I'm a little chubby, but I like to wear crop tops Hey I'm a little chubby, and it's only ever been this way. But I gotta know, whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do about it? whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do about it? whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do about it? whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do about it?

When I was a young girl, I was told to be what i wanted So I went, and I tried to become the thing that I wanted But now I'm a bit older, and I'm hearing something else Now that I'm looking round I am seeing something else That goes like If you wanna make it, girl You'll have to shake it, girl Show a little more, and talk a little less It would help if you had bit more to your chest, maybe a thinner waist try putting on a dress I am more than my tits, I am more than my clit, I hate wearing dresses. But this world that we live in would rather get off than value the driven. If I take off my shirt, will you listen to my music? La di da di da, oh yeah If I take off my shirt, will you listen to my music? La di da di da, oh yeah Well, turns out I am more than my tits, I am more than my clit, I hate wearing dresses, and I got a lot to say But this world that we live in would rather get off than value the driven, or the minds of our children If I take off my shirt, will you listen to my music? La di da di da, oh yeah If I take off my shirt, will you listen to my music? La di da di da, oh yeah If I take off my shirt, will you listen to my music? La di da di da, oh yeah If I take off my shirt, will you listen to my music? La di da di da, oh yeah If you wanna make it, girl You'll have to shake it, girl Show a little more, and talk a little less It would help if you had bit more to your chest, maybe a thinner waist try putting on a dress If I take off my shirt, will you listen to my music?

La di da di da, oh yeah If I take off my shirt, will you listen to my music? La di da di da, oh yeah

Gym Crush 04:21
Every night, when the time is right you put on your tennis shoes and go You've got other stuff to do, but that don't matter to you water bottle, headphones in, you're ready to roll. Your friends say their impressed with your commitment to get fit, they know you're spending every night at the gym. But deep down you know, the reason you go is in hopes to see him. While you're pumping iron, you keep a careful eye out scanning all the dudes in the mirror You notice he's here, but suddenly clear is you're biggest fear You see your gym crush talking to another girl what are you to do when he's looking right through you to smile at her? You see your gym crush talking to another girl Now you feel so lame, you don't even know his name, but it hurts all the same Every night, when the time is right you put on your tennis shoes and go Your friends say their impressed with your commitment to get fit, they know you're spending every night at the gym. But deep down you know, the reason you go is in hopes to see him. While you're pumping iron, you keep a careful eye out scanning all the dudes in the mirror You notice he's here, but suddenly clear is you're biggest fear You see your gym crush talking to another girl what are you to do when he's looking right through you to smile at her? You see your gym crush talking to another girl Now you feel so lame, you don't even know his name, but it hurts all the same Does she squat, squat deeper than me? Does she jump, jump higher than me? Does she lift, lift more than me? Can she run, run faster than me? Can she plank, plank longer than me? Does she sweat, sweat more than me? Gym crush, what are you doin. Oh, what are you doin. Gym crush, what are you doin. Oh, what are you doin.

You are more beautiful than the flowers I picked the other day, and though they died in the window, luckily that's not your case. That night, I wanted to tell you I loved you and so I did. Maybe too soon? But thankfully, you are still here. You are my sunshine You water my leaves You bring out my color You are more wonderful than the ocean sounds that soothe a troubled mind, though they crash to the seashore, thankfully, that's not your case. I know that sometimes I can be a lot and that's my bad I'm learning not to always think so hard. You are my lighthouse You guide me to shore You light up the nighttime And I know we're far away for now and inside sometimes it scares us Oh but I have faith that someday, somehow We'll end up in the same zipcode You make me so happy you don't mind my tears you share my odd humor You are my darlin you are my dear You bring out my color

Last week, I wrote a song about how wonderful you were, but that was before what you said the next day I used some metaphors about how you were like flowers and sunshine, but you gave me a sunburn and looks like you might be a weed You ripped out my petals You stomped on my leaves You drained me of color Next was a verse about how you're like a lighthouse that guides me to shore who knew the shore was just a bunch of big sharp rocks? Before, you were the one who lit up the night time, but now you're the reason I'm afraid of the dark I'll be here, crying in the bathroom I'll be here, crying to my mom But I'm glad you're having fun at that beach house I'll be here, faking a smile I'll be here, hating my tears but I'm glad you're having fun at that beach house And I know we're far away for now and in just a month we would be closer Until you said you're going to leave again and plan to be single when you do So out of the blue Here's why I don't write love songs They always bite me in the ass You'd think by now I would learn my lesson Here's why I don't write love songs They always bite me in the ass You'd think by now I would learn my lesson

A couple weeks back I thought “tonight will be the big one” I sang and it felt sublime but when I listened back I lost it so I went for a run and I cried for the whole time I wanted to cherish the time I had off but instead I just wallowed around I wanted to share in the holiday song but my head was too stuck in the ground A couple weeks back I thought “maybe this will be alright” I don’t know how to behave but see, often my best is not enough to last past the night nor am I always so brave I wanted to cherish the time I had off but instead I just wallowed around I wanted to share in the holiday song but my head Was too stuck in the ground Maybe I need you or may be you need me maybe we could use one another, then? I don’t believe you I don’t believe me maybe we con- fuse one another then Somehow I always wanna sing the most when I got a cold Somehow I always wanna sing the most when I got a cold Maybe I need you or may- be you need me maybe we could use one another, then? I don’t believe you I don’t believe me maybe we con- fuse one another then

2 CDs 04:03
Sometimes I get excited when I think I saw something in your eyes but, typically when I go and get excited Turns out it was just a trick of the light But you owe me two CDs Though I'm sure you've forgotten by now. You owe me two CDs But how could I blame you for forgetting? I should have known, I should have known, I should have known I was just another part of that day for you I should have known, I should have known, I should have known I was just another part of that day I should have known, I should have known, I should have known I was just another part of that day for you I should have known, I should have known, I should have known I was just another part of that day But you owe me two CDs sometimes I wish I had forgotten by now. You owe me two CDs but I'm a fool for expecting them. I should have known, I should have known, I should have known I was just another part of that day for you I should have known, I should have known, I should have known I was just another part of that day So I'll stay here and I'll think about it some days when I hear your songs but it's none of my business bugging you anymore You can keep the CDs and I'm sorry, I guess I expected them. You can keep the CDs but you were fun think about.

Pretty Tired 03:05
Turns out I just sing too loud and lose my voice Every other poor decision's a thought out choice Can't control my own reflection, even if I try hard Can't explain wordless rejection, or the hole of a heart And I get really tired and I get really cold I can't tell if I tried and I start feeling old All the friends I love to make just end up movin while I remain, my hands they shake and I hunt for soothing We are all just selfish creatures, crawlin for love, crawlin for love Picking at our lovely features, hoping for love, hoping for love But I get really tired and I get really cold I can't tell if I tried and I start feeling old Death, it creeps into my mind more often than not Hard to feel a bit less weary when I'm hoping a lot But I feel. I don't wanna. When I feel, I don't wanna. But I feel. And I don't wanna. Then I feel.

Looking for love can be hard. You never know when to let down your guard So many fine looking people in the street, a million hotties that you kinda wanna meet.
