lyrics

this american daydream wrapped me up in gauze & paint
it gave me a relapse, said i liked it better that way
& that may be true i thought but it shouldn't be that way
so where do i go with the ripped IV dangling from my vein?

i don't care what you say to me
it's easy it's easy it's easy
to walk away, to walk away, to walk away from

these conversations have been telling in many ways
but they are not pushing me closer to my goals
& this pile of parking tickets & bills in my face
are making me think i should just do as i'm told

i don't care what you say to me
it's easy it's easy it's easy
to walk away, to walk away, to walk away from

five, six, seven, eight, i can think of better ways
to make me like you, than to tell me that i'm pretty
one, two, three, four, i'm not gonna fall for
any of this because i know myself too well

these american bad boys think they've got one over on me
they come with their red sharpies to make editor's marks on my body

i don't care what you say to me
it's easy it's easy it's easy
to walk away, to walk away, to walk away from

i don't care what you say to me
it's easy it's easy it's easy
to walk away, to walk away, to walk away from this

rorie kelly New York

rorie writes songs that are melodic and catchy but more thoughtful and introspective than the average pop tune. Her vocals are bigger than you would expect out of her small body and her guitar playing is powerful and percussive.
