SAME TASTE

Why does she cry every night, 

Why, does she tell herself the same lies?

And even in the small moments of hope, 

She still falls short, scared to show, 

To be that girl she thinks they want. 

Glamour girl, she wants everything, 

But she has nothing.

Crying ‘cause she knows she’s not invincible, 

Praying (praying hard) ‘cause she knows she has just lost it all. 

She wanted all things sweet and neat, 

But this life she said, it made her beat, 

And with this nothing and nowhere,

It’s terrified me and now I’m so scared.

It’s so hard, I have to do it but I can’t. 

Glamour girl, she wants everything, 

But she has nothing.

Crying ‘cause she knows she’s not invincible, 

Dancing (in the night) ‘cause she knows she has just lost it all. 

We’re living like animals,

And there’s no love in this city, 

I walked in through the fire and back,

To see if I was more than just flesh, 

I dreamed I couldn’t be broken, 

But this life it told me look again. 

Glamour girl, she wants everything, 

But she has nothing.

Crying ‘cause she knows she’s not invincible, 

Living ‘cause she knows she has just lost it all. 

Glamour girl, you love all that sugar, 

(Ego dancing on the stage.)

Glamour girl, you say you’re a beggar, 

(Arms open wide for the chase.)

Glamour girl, they say you’re still a looker, 

(Save me, I’m stuck in this race.)
