lyrics

When I see pixies and stardust
spontaneously combust
I know the time has come for change
to sing the same old tune with a different muse
and pretend that it's okay
to click my heals and transport home
in some red shoes I don't own
so I stay just where I am
but if I act like I'm psycho, somehow that more normal
because it's trendy, yeah
----
I put my makeup on for me and me alone
and I will sing my song even after I go home
I wanna scream and shout all the things you need to hear
and I'm allowed right now, so please put down your beer
Just for a second, baby
---
You are better than what they give you credit for
so please don't do this to yourself anymore
because I will not stand to see you like this
when you wake up wake up sayin sayin:
“What did I miss?”
“What did I miss miss
what did I miss miss?
Gimmie a kiss” (smooch)
“What did I miss?”
----
When I see pixies and stardust
spontaneously erupt
I know the time has come for shame
to sing the same old tune
so incredibly shrewd
Because I do not know who to blame
I always sing like I know you
though you will be disowned soon
if you cannot change your ways
because frankly my freaking dear,
that stuff just isn't welcome here
so get it all out of my face
----
I put my makeup on for me and me alone
and I will sing my song even after I go home
I wanna scream and shout all the things you need to hear
and I'm allowed right now, so please put down your beer
Just for a second, baby
---
Just for a second baby...
Just for a second baby
Shh
Sorry?
Just for a second
Shh.
MM
It's going to be okay
everything is going to be okay.

(you are better than)
You are better than

---
You are better than what they give you credit for
so please don't do this to yourself anymore
because I will not stand to see you like this
when you wake up wake up sayin sayin:
“What did I miss?”
“What did I miss miss
what did I miss miss?
Gimmie a kiss—WHOO!” (smooch)
“What did I miss?”
---
What did I miss-scat-

ha...uhmmm

heheh eheh.
Well uhh, what'd you miss?
Well ahh. Hm. You're not getting a kiss.
