Working my way to the bottom of a barrel.
Married that man and borrowed the blues.
Everything is old, everything is new,
Everything is borrowed, and everything gets blue.
It's the kind of secret an uncle only shares with his niece.
Only now there's no sleep, just fucking lay in the bed
Between blankets and sheets.
And yo, it has to be better than sleeping alone.
It's better to be homely than live without a home.
"Common sense is the collection of prejudices
Acquired by age eighteen."
Who gives a fuck?
So fucking what if I didn't say it first,
It takes smarts to rip off genius,
And I've got enough brains to get us out of this mess.
You don't have to be Einstein to look into a mirror.
Hickeys can be covered and the bruising disappears.
It's the kind of thing you say when you want people to hear.
It's from the bottom of my heart
Because the top just isn't sincere.

    General CommentI'm assuming these are from the liner notes,

    I've definitely noticed differences in the written lyrics and ones in the actual song.
