Rilo Kiley – Jenny, You're Barely Alive lyrics

And it's all the treasures that shine in the street
As we drive right over them
And it's all the mornings we missed for sleep
As the sun glides over our apartment
And it's all the subtle change in landscape and business
Reminds you of your limited time
This time you'll listen to the movement in your body
How it keeps on despite you and it frightens you
Cause you're barely alive

You're desperate in finding something else to please you
You've been searching your whole life
Something to mute, change, or just distract you
Something to put inside you to give the illusion of life
Cause you've always been barely alive
Cause you're barely alive
Cause you're barely alive
You've always been barely alive
Have you not?

And the greatest escape that you ever did make
With your arms by your side left it up to fate
And the coast that you've seen though you're watching them weekly
You've cursed all perfect days as you walked away
I can hear you say, "Jenny, you're barely alive"

A metal rods you put in your fucking jaw to keep you from grinding your teeth at night

Cause you're barely alive
You've always been barely alive
Cause you're barely alive
Always been barely alive
