Lyrics

"The First Girl"

Well I know I’m not the first girl
To tell you all her secrets through song
It probably won’t be the last time
I complicate what’s already wrong

And I know you’ve got my number
Cause you’ve called me out so many times
And I know you see right through me
I don’t have to tell you what’s on my mind
I know you know

I’m a sucker for a good story
But I always make a mess of my own
And I wish I could rewrite the ending
So nobody ends up all alone

I don’t want to pull you under
Just to keep my own self afloat
And I know you hear the thunder
We should probably stay in the boat
I know you know

I know you know
I know you know

You know I give myself away
I always sing what I can’t say
I never have a reason for my rhyme
You know that I am lying when you ask me and I say I’m doing fine

If I apologize for being honest
Will you forgive me when I’m telling a lie
I’m so bad at awkward conversations
Doesn’t mean I’m not willing to try

And I know your first reaction
Was to pack your bags and head for the door
And deny me the satisfaction
Of seeing you begging for more
I know you know
I know you know
You know
You know
You know

Well I know I’m not the first girl
To tell you all her secrets through song
