She always claimed to be a bad-ass girl
She said 'nobody can touch me, nobody can hit my world'
So I just stood aside and watched her fall to her knees
Until the day she stopped saying 'fuck you' and started saying 'please'

I just want to live in this world free
And I just want to be praised for being me
I'm so tired of following your standards of what to do
Who cares if I just met you, I know that I'm in love with you

So lay back and take a toke
And laugh hard at my joke
It's okay if you choke
Better luck next time

Now she's flipping through this world like it's an endless fashion magazine
And she'd die for her passion, but she can't find an in between
He always says he loves her, but she doesn't really care
'Cause the one she really loves would never dare

She takes a stroll through this park and thinks of impossibilities
She thinks how easy life would be, if she could live with the rocks
and the trees
She kills herself over the things she doesn't know
Like all the paths she could be taking and destroying her ego

I just want to live in this world free
And I just want to be praised for being me
I'm so tired of following your standards of what to do
Who cares if I just met you, I know that I'm in love with you

So lay back and take a toke
And laugh hard at my joke
It's okay if you choke
Better luck next time

    General CommentShe was a tough girl that no one could ever have, but she falls in love and realizes that this person is changing her drastically, and she doesn't know what to do; she feels vulnerable, because this person is trying to change her, she wants to be who she used to be. In a way its kind of a dark joke, very ironic that she was a "bad-ass" girl yet this one boy has the power to control her, to change her into something she doesn't want to be.

    General CommentI take this as the singer fell in love with a girl who was that tough girl and the singer is chasing after her but she's getting tired of "following the girl's standards." I actually think the girl the singer is in love with has a boyfriend and maybe she's confused over who to be with but I feel like she wants to be with the singer. That's why the girl thinks of the possibilities and such. I think that's why the singer maybe has the girl alone and despite laughing and toking up she's saying better luck next time because at the end the girl isn't hers.

    IDK that's what I got and as we all know, music has different meanings for different people.
