lyrics

why don't you cry about it, always works, i will do anything to fix
lie about it, biggest perk, i am walking benefit of doubt
you want so badly for me to feel the same way you do now &
i know, i know what it is to love to be in someone's presence
& later hate their guts for it

but i know what i am to you
don't think i can't see right through your kindness too
convenient is my middle name

so take me out to dinner i will be touched by the gesture & forget
if i had a problem, do you ever feel like you are
in another country speaking french & every now & then
you think of something that's in english, but it doesn't last for long
so yeah, let's play another couple hands & talk about the hazards of drinking
but i won't actually do any, i don't want to be off my balance with you

'cause i know what our friendship means
i know just how much help a willing ride can be
i already know what you're gonna say, so you don't have to tell me, see
convenient is my middle name

so tell me what has happened
in your own words, in your own words, i wanna know
what you think this means to me &
all it doesn't mean to you, when you say
hey what happened happened & the past is in the past
even five minutes ago, hey ain't that why it's called five minutes ago

when you said baby would you
keep quiet for just five minutes
so i can turn it around so i am the victim
keep quiet for just five minutes
so i can make it so we always were at war with
east asia & always were allied with eurasia
& your nature, baby, makes it easier for me

but i know what i am to you
don't think i can't see right through your kindness too
convenient is my middle name

i will keep quiet so you can have the satisfaction
knowing that this has ended politely
so you can go home & fake admit to your mommy
she was right about me, see

i know what i am to you
don't think i can't see right through your kindness too
i know everything, i know everything, that i do for you
convenient is my middle name

about

rorie kelly New York

rorie kelly is on a quest to bring her songs to ears around the world through the cunning use of the internet and a small blue Toyota with over 200,000 miles on it.

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.
