This Heart of Mine — Pulling Fire Alarms

 
  • Ain't it hard to be a rich girl and find something to do for kicks?
  • Your daddy don't love you, and your mommy's gone
  • And you're still trying to swallow it
  • And you feel like you've been dealing with a hundred years
  • Of somebody else's heartache somehow
  • It's like you've lost a lover, and you ain't got no other
  • Way to live, but to let it out
  • And you know that I ain't playing chicken
  • But I'm feeling something burning
  • And this ain't no game of crying wolf
  • And I don't know if it's inside of me
  • Or just another side of me
  • I never tried to figure out
  • And let it go
  • Before I spark
  • And pull the fire alarms
  • Around my heart
  • And it ain't easy to be some preacher's kid
  • When you're fearing what the Lord's got to say
  • And nobody here is bluffing anybody else
  • But you still don't have a thing to say
  • And all you want to do is play
  • And I know there ain't no game to win
  • But I feel like I am pushing it
  • Hoping to find another high
  • But something in me's turning
  • 'Cause I've never felt the burning
  • That I feel when I'm standing still
  • I've gotta let it out/ Before I spark/ And pull the fire alarms/ Around my heart
