Lyrics[]

So tell me this is who you are
They tell me I've got something more
And oh, you could be loved
But I don't want the lights to find me when I'm dark and lost
But never on my own

Cos I just wanna swing like Sinatra
Singing like I can't stop
Cos I could never rock like a Rolling Stone
I just wanna live like the ones before, yeah
And maybe I could play guitar like Hendrix
Or save the world or end it, and
Then maybe they'll remember me when I'm gone
That's all I could ever want
That's all I want

So I got ten minutes to be all or nothing to
Whoever wants to hear
And I got ten weeks of talking bullshit on repeat
'Til I'm burnt out and disappear
But I owe you nothing
And I own my luck
Oh, they said you'll never be alone again
But I don't think you understand me or what I fear
But you could be loved
But I don't want to lie to tell myself
I'm more than all the mistakes I've outrun

Cos I'm only here for a minute
And I don't care what you say cos I know
You're only here cos I'm winning
But I can be my own kind of rock and roll, I
I don't really care if you say you don't fuck with me
And I can say what the fuck I want cos it's down to me
And I got love for you even if you were doubting me
Like oh my God, I just can't stop

Cos I just wanna sing like Sinatra
With ethanol my soundtrack
Cos I could never rock like a Rolling Stone
I wonder how it feels to burn out young, yeah
Cos I just wanna die before my heart fails
From heartbreak or cocktails and
Then maybe you'll cry once you know I'm gone
That's all I could ever want
Oh, that's all I want, yeah

Cos I ain't scared of living
Does it get easier?
No… yes, it gets easier
No I ain't scared of living
Oh yeah?
No I ain't scared of living

Sex, drugs, and rock and roll, that's all I want
Cos it's all we've got
What are we breathing for if we ain't living?
What's under the words you know, that's all I want
And I don't want your love
I just wanna feel like I'm still living
Something more than superficial is all I want
And if there is no god
I know the day I die, I lived through heaven
Sex, drugs, and rock and roll, that's all I want
And that I gave it hell
And if it hurt, oh well
At least that's living

The more you know who you are, and what you want
That's all I want
The less you let things upset you
That's all I want
I just don't know who I'm supposed to be
I tried being a writer but I hate what I write
And I tried taking pictures, but they're so mediocre
You know, every girl goes through a photography phase
You know, like horses, and taking dumb pictures of your feet
You'll figure that out
I'm not worried about you
