Judy Garland

lyrics

i'm a good woman, you're a good man
the night just got caught between heartbeats and bare hands
i'm selfish & sad  & you're a bad liar
the green curtained snowstorm sang songs: ohia

there are boys who wear beer shirts & boys who wear band shirts
the one who like cats, the ones who like children
i am bearing the bruises, blood vessels of guilt 
high above the zoo, the car, the quilts
johnny cat, ms simone, the hunger of this

cause we're already halfway to judy garland
trainwrecks, cheaters, singers, drunk for days
throw me out with the skeletons that sleep in your garden
let me go
cause you know
i've been sleeping throughout these days

i'm a bad woman and you're a young man
those songs were about me before we even made plans
i'm a good singer but you're a good talker
we have everything but i still miss my water

i burn holes in my heart with coffee and mint
how dare you see me as perfect as this
i will dig my way out of these 5000 miles
february, the ice storm, the women with child
afterglow, eyelashes, tiny fires gone wild

cause we're already halfway to judy garland
trainwrecks cheaters singers hell to pay
throw me out with the skeletons that sleep in your garden
let me go
cause you know
i've been dreaming throughout these days

i've taken these hearts in my fists & jumped ship
but they'll get out alive, we'll all get out alive
i'll keep above water, i'll stop being selfish
i will get out alive i will get out alive
i will get out alive i will get out alive

i'm a small woman & you're a soft man
so there was no future there for us to stand on
you're a good mover but i'm a good faker
i cut you the moon of my hips out of paper

i wish all of the whispers & glances were tied
to machines that made choices i could justify
i will take it all back, you will write it all down
high school girls, ginger rogers, the fever of sounds
the 2/3, moonshine tailors, all the shit i allowed

cause we're already halfway to judy garland
trainwrecks cheaters singers underpaid
throw me out with the skeletons that sleep in your garden
let me go
cause you know
i'm sorry about these days
