I can be an engine buzzing like a bee, I'm a real independent
doing the laundry and planning for the future
it's the nature of a renaissance girl
I can be your darling cooking you dinner and soothing your heartache
Having three kinds and still remain a virgin
It's my version of a renaissance girl

Lift me lift me up when the air is thin and my mind will take off
Pull me pull me down when my love is pure and I feel alright now

Come along, come, come along, we can be your renaissance girls
Come along, come, come along, move forward, move forward
Come along, come, come along, tough like rocks and sweet like pearls
Come along, come, come along, we can be your renaissance girls

I can be an artist sculpting your face like you always wanted
Making you believe it's just how I saw it
it's logic for a renaissance girl
I can be impressed by all the things you know'
I'm fan I'm obsessed now
I'm in your I drive in your fast car
it's mastered by a renaissance girl

I'll release my mind you can be my back bone
I call you honey you can cry on my shoulder
Let it all breath, I got a degree in psychology

Lift me lift me up when the air is thin and my mind will take off
Pull me pull me down when my love is gone and I feel alright now

Come along, come, come along, we can be your renaissance girls
Come along, come, come along, move on, move on
Come along, come, come along, take the drugs
Come along, come, come along we can be your renaissance girls

    General Comment:In general I think this song is obviously making a reference to a rennaissance man as the definition puts it to: a polymath, a person whose expertise spans a significant number of different subject areas. So sort of making a reference how guys or men in general nowadays want their girls to do everything, to be perfect in every sense, to be a jack of all trades. It also reminds me of one time I was talking to a friend saying how feminine aspects in society are seen now as weak. That’s mostly how I see it so women are supposed to do now many things, and also have certain specific careers or ideal jobs for “women” related tasks, well that’s how I see this song in general.

    It also depicts the typical housewife: “I can be an engine buzzing like a bee, I'm a real independent
    doing the laundry and planning for the future
    it's the nature of a renaissance girl”
    Also “I can be an engine” as if women were robots supposed to make everything perfect. Just reminds me of the typical housewife and a bit about chauvinism too:

    “I can be your darling cooking you dinner and soothing your heartache
    Having three kids and still remain a virgin
    It's my version of a renaissance girl”
    How some men want their girls to be virgins or wait til they get married and it’s not seen as bad when a guy is not a virgin before they marry but for a girl it’s different so sometimes they don’t talk about it as openly or is frowned upon by society. It’s like some girls even believe this “made up fantasy” and they want to live up to that expectation of a “perfect wife, woman, girlfriend”, an all around ideal of a perfect woman in general. Have 3 kids and still be faithful even if they don't love their husbands or never even think about divorce at all because that's just "wrong".

    "Lift me lift me up when the air is thin and my mind will take off
    Pull me pull me down when my love is pure and I feel alright now"< this I think isn't correct.

    This reminds me more like when you are in love with a guy that sees the world in that closed off way like women are weaker and men are stronger type of reasoning so they give you hopes of love or whatever then they make up again this “fantasy” sort of even Disney type world where you will live happily ever after, reason why “the air is thin”, and her mind “takes off”, but reality is very different.
    The second part I think should be “My feet are on the ground”, but I’m not sure I could be wrong, if it isss that way though it’s like “pull me down”, how she does in the video like pulling her ponytail, reminds me of those men also that are possessive over girls like during intimacy or whatever and they try to make you feel inferior, maybe not in that sense as to the intimacy so much but the reference is made possibly to the making you feel bad after you’ve loved them a lot eventhough you are realistic with your loving them they try to pull you down or make you feel worthless maybe like pull you back on the ground after they give you wings to fly so to speak?

    “I can be an artist sculpting your face like you always wanted
    Making you believe it's just how I saw it
    it's logic for a renaissance girl”
    – Like tell him everything he wants to hear and make him feel good eventhough you might think different just because you don’t want to be made feel bad or be treated badly or the guy to get angry in some way.

    I can be impressed by all the things you know'
    I'm fan I'm obsessed now
    I'm in your I drive in your fast car
    it's mastered by a renaissance girl
    - Same as up there like be impressed by those type of guys that think they know it all and just want you to be obsessed with them or their “intelligence” sometimes. Like they want to feel better, superior, again when she says renaissance girl is like she has to know it all as well and be perfect otherwise the guy might be uninterested or treat her badly if she doesn’t put up with the ideal woman he wants, or the facade. Also of course… guys love cars XD and girls must KNIT SWEATERS…that part is off from the lyrics it should read:

    “I’m a fan I’m obsessed now knitting you a sweater while you drive in your fast car”

    Also a reference to the “sweet” girl that can’t deal with cars or heavy “manly” things and must not like them she must like knitting sweaters, and sweet and cute and cuddly things :P

    HERE ANOTHER MISTAKE
    I’ll lose my money you can be my backbone” – meaning the typical girl who doesn’t have to work cause the guy will provide for her even if she loses her job or whatever she doesn’t care cause the guy can be her backbone.

    I call you honey you can cry on my shoulder
    Let it all breath, I got a degree in psychology”- I think this refers more to the sort of “weak” guy so to speak like he goes to her for emotional support and help and expects her to do everything for him and know how he feels all the time when he’s feeling sad or maybe even read his mind and know why he’s feeling in which way and what to do to help him as if she were a psychologist.

    Another take I have on that one last part is like this: I'll lose my money you can be my backbone, I'll call you honey you can cry on my shoulder.

    This can apply to both men and women maybe like a guy can also do that and just call them honey and want them to be all starry eyed cause they're nice to them even if they treat them badly or live off them or expect them to solve everything again making reference to the "rennaissance girl", an ideal perfect lover/woman.

    In general I think the lyrics are a bit off here just a few things that should be checked.
