Nellie Mckay – Real Life lyrics

Don't ask me what I'm thinking
I can't handle it
Didn't plan on this
Don't ask me what I'm drinking
Hip hop hey what's up
Nothing doing Bud

If I had a real life
I could break my hands
And maybe feel life
Not understand it
As if I had a real life
Not a bland and broken false reality

Sign up for lie detection
They'll examine me
Shine a light and see
They'll find a slight depression
Say it can't be done
Nothing comes from fun

But if I had a real life
I could break the mold
And maybe steal life
From those who stole it
As if they had a real life
Not an old and smokin' false reality

Girl gone crazy
Riding the wave
Rotting away out
World don't faze me
Nothing to save
Nothing to save us now
Anyhow

Buy me a billionaire
And maybe I'll forget
Maybe I'll accept
Write me a baudelaire
And tie me uppercut
If you're going up

Cause if I had a real life
I could break it down
And maybe feel a life
Not just drown in it
As if I had a real life
Not a town and country false reality

Girl gone crazy
Riding the wave
Rotting away out
World don't faze me
Nothing to save
Nothing to save us now
Anyhow

Destroy the government
And set me up as king
I've been wondering
About the president
That pushing me around
Going underground

Cause if I had a real life
I could break the rules
And maybe feel life
Instead of foolish
As if I had a real life
Not a cruel and choking false reality
