Kiernan McMullan – Ballad Of A Shallow Man lyrics

I'm a little melodramatic, lyrically cinematic
I hope I don't step over my lines
I turn night into day cos day seems just right to brighten up this night of mine
I draw a shape in the sand with a coke can that I found beside the tide
And as the waves come crashing right back in I hesitate to say that I will survive

Da da da da da da da

Take these keys to your life
You're just a giant-sized man of the times
Fool yourself, but cleverly disguise the right the lie
I hate your face
But I love your body
Is it ok for me to act so shoddy in this life

Call me dirt, scum, run through them all
Cos you damn well know I've heard them all before
I might a little dumbstruck, fucked, out of my league
And just a little bit insecure
I'm not everything that you expected me to be
Pen to paper, signature and date here please

Da da da da da da da

Take these keys to your life
You're just a giant-sized man of the times
Fool yourself, but cleverly disguise the right the lie
I hate your face
But I love your body
Is it ok for me to act so shoddy in this life

I'm a little melodramatic, lyrically cinematic
I hope I don't step over my lines
I turn night into day cos day seems just right to brighten up this night of mine
I draw a shape in the sand with a coke can that I found beside the tide
And as the waves come crashing right back in I hesitate to say that I will survive

Da da da da da da da

Take these keys to your life
You're just a giant-sized man of the times
Fool yourself, but cleverly disguise the right the lie
I hate your face
But I love your body
Is it ok for me to act so shoddy in this life
Oh please tell me

Da da da da da da da da
