It starts in my lungs and moves to my lips and makes its way down to your heart
You shouldn't have to worry about this make up down your cheek, this true love shouldn't have to convinced every week
So gather up your belongings and say your goodbyes, momma's mockingbird is gonna dry your eyes

And everyone's out to get one another so keep your head up, here comes the storm
'cause everyone wants to be loved by another who'll hold their hair as they let it out

I work for the lemons
I work for the lemons
And the big ones keep sourcing out the little
When they really want is some sun
But no one can solve their riddle
Made in skyscrapers and stamped 'family fun'

I work for the lemons

So hold your breath and protect those subtle lips
You never know just when you're gonna get that poisoned kiss
Protect those you love and listen to their words:
No one's gonna let you get hurt, pretty bird, it takes time.
Maybe in a month or two you'll count this a blessing,
Maybe he'll spend years second guessing

Everyone's out to get one another so keep your head up, here comes the storm
Everyone wants to be loved by another who'll hold their hair back as they let it out

I work for the lemons

No one's out to get you
No one's out to get you
No one's out to get you

And so you turn your cheek
The other cheek
I work for the lemons
