U.S. Girls - IOU

You didn't choose to be born
And I never heard of anyone who has
I never known no baby with a plan
For how to survive, how to stay alive

You shower with your silver on
And you brush you hair with a round brush you keep in your bag
And now I do the same, it seems like the only whole plan
To lead a double life, two chances to get it right

You hid it for a moment
But I could see it in your almost drowning face
That you don't know what's up, what's down, what to do
And that's how come all those tattoos
And I'm talking about all of mine, too

IOU
IOU
I do, I do, I do, I do

When my brother learned to drive
He said no car was gonna pass him by, no way
Yeah, he said he would cut the throat of anyone who tried
And that was just one of his lies, and let me tell you mine


I've never cried
One tear in my whole damn life
And I know full well
What makes the shadows on my walls
Because I cast them there all by myself

Stay in some way
Lay a rose on my stage
And if you want my woman wet
It's like a bird building a nest, give it time
If I can do it, if I can do it
Then you can do it too
Objects in the mirror are so much closer than they appear

You went too deep into the Big Deep
And that's the trouble with being born
I'm gonna put to bed the shame that I keep
It's the only way to stay alive, I just wanna be alive

What you hide is true
God don't take sides, but I do, yeah
What you hide is true
God don't take sides, but I do
I do, I do, and so do you

Stay in some way
Lay a rose on my stage
And if you want my woman wet
It's like a bird building a nest, give it time
If I can do it, if I can do it
Then you can do it too
Objects in the mirror are so much closer than they appear
And you appear
