lyrics

i'm singing harmonies to an old song,
any old song, it don't matter
thinking of the car, tegan & sara,
& waking up with you hard against me

& the window that i stare at rolls the evening on by
like nothing ever happens & time just passes by
& i'm thinking i have friends here, & these people somewhat know me
& i sidestep conversation so i don't have to feel the truth

i'm too smart to believe
i'm too smart not to see
i'm not too smart to grieve

& the pages of my notebook filling up with my selfishness
& it's true all i could think of was who's gonna make me feel better now?
i know how to get attention now, & it's killing my hope
i know how to be good to you but i don't want to make myself into a chump

i'm too smart to believe
i'm too smart not to see
i'm not too smart to bleed

& i wasn't always crazy; i saw magic in the subways
i saw the best minds of my generation succumb
to numbness & lipstick
to post-feminism
to post-everything

we're too smart to believe
we're too smart to feel free
we're too smart to do a goddamn thing about anything
we take it lying down we take it cracking jokes

& i'm singing harmonies to an old song
any old song it don't matter
thinking of the car, tegan & sara
& waking up next to you

i will call this sentimental
i will write down that i miss you
that's as far as i am willing to go

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.
