Lemonade

lyrics

He said,
'You're not pretty, but there's something about you
that makes you really attractive
and I don't know what it is.'
And I said, 'Wow, that's the nicest un-compliment
I've ever received,
and did you think of it yourself?'

And I think sometimes when life gives you lemons
It's best to squirt them in people's eyes
And though the summer nights are warm and pleasant
It's really not enough to get you by
Then all you can do is try

He said,
'I really love how you don't care how you look
or how you act, and whether it makes you ugly or not.'
And I just stood there, not sure what to think
And was I being trolled, or was he honest and sincere?

And I think sometimes when life gives you lemons
It's best to squirt them in people's eyes
And though the summer nights are warm and pleasant
It's really not enough to get you by
Then all you can do is cry

Welcome to the real world
Welcome to the real world
Welcome to the real world
There must be some kind of mistake
There must be some kind of mistake

He said,
'If you weren't such a bitch I think I'd be in danger of falling in love with you.
But as it is, what do you say we go fuck?'
And I thought for a minute and I said,
'Okay.'

And I think sometimes when life gives you lemons
It's best to squirt them in people's eyes
And though the summer nights are warm and pleasant
It's really not enough to get you by
And so you stick your insecurities in a box
And you don't open it until the day you die
So you can say that you're happy with the live you chose
And your smile won't be a lie
Then all you can do is die

Welcome to the real world
Welcome to the real world
Welcome to the real world
There must be some kind of mistake
There must be some kind of mistake
There must be some kind of mistake
