Every Time I Die – The New Black lyrics

Baby, you got me all wrong
And maybe I'm not all down and out
I'm high and I'm in
Don't you know who I am?

I'm the jaded one with pop insensitivity
And when I finish struggling
We can make our way to the dance floor and stand like strangers in an elevator stuck between stories
I always find myself in the middle of your stories

With the camera as a witness I will suffer [x2]

If everything I do is wrong
Then by god I'll do it right [x4]

We don't dance, no no no
We got class
No we don't have any fun at all
It's the new style and we know it
We're not stunning
We're just stunned

And we're lying for a living
We're lying for a living

Don't you know who I am?
I'm the real thing with low-key sensibilities
I don't need what I got half as much as everyone covets it

Well if loving me is wrong, then god damn you do it right [x2]

It turns us on to turn you down
We're turned on to turn you down
