When I see the ocean it means I'm home
Just give me the one wall, I can hold the world at bay
Put your camera down, this is not a zoo
Any serious miracle is not for keeping now

And I'm a lioness when it comes to you
If they say a word, it'll be the last mistake they get a chance to make
And I'm a straight up ghost since you wrote me off
Don't need pride of place, but in your good books I think I might rate a page

The trace effects of these foreign wars
I'm not sitting it out, I'm still in shock
And this cold, old orbit never fails
As the city sleeps, we fly into the night

And I broke parole just to get to you
At a stupid show I thought, "This can't be real"
I threw a McEnroe

And I'm a straight up ghost in a tattered cape
Too small to fail, but, baby,
Someone's gonna love me someday

    Lyric CorrectionThese lyrics are close, but not right. The correct lyrics are:

    When I see the ocean it means I'm home
    Just give me the one wall, I can hold the world at bay
    Put your camera down, this is not a zoo
    Any serious miracle is not for keeping now

    And I'm a lioness when it comes to you
    If they say a word, it'll be the last mistake they get a chance to make
    And I'm a straight up ghost since you wrote me off
    Don't need pride of place, but in your good books I think I might rate a page

    The trace effects of these foreign wars
    I'm not sitting it out, I'm still in shock
    And this cold, old orbit never fails
    As the city sleeps, we fly into the night

    And I broke parole just to get to you
    At a stupid show I thought, "this can't be real"
    I threw a McEnroe

    And I'm a straight up ghost in a tattered cape
    Too small to fail, but, baby,
    someone's gonna love me someday
