Saint Etienne – Soft Like Me lyrics

Soft like wildflowers by rivers and streams
Thoughts washing over me like the stuff of my dreams
And I see it coming true
We'll be soft like you, we'll be soft like you

Hey, do you wanna be
Or don't you wanna be
Soft like me

Hey, do you wanna be
Or don't you wanna be
Soft like me

I used to wonder why big boys don't cry
'Cause they were always taught to hold it deep inside
Hide the feelings, they bubble to the top when it's all going off
Better put 'em up, let 'em know you're tough

And remember they won't take backtalk
Then you should never let them walk
And son, if you run back to me defenseless
Then, boy, I'm a wanna beat you senseless

And that's daddy doing what he can
To make that boy a man, I have a different plan
Baby, I'll encourage you to be expressive not aggressive
More soft around the edges just like me

Hey, do you wanna be
Or don't you wanna be
Soft like me

Hey, do you wanna be
Or don't you wanna be
Soft like me

Little girls are made of everything nice, we pay the price
For wearing hearts on sleeves, I still believes
We hold the key to the better way to be
With feminine energy I touch the universe

But what came first was peace to all mankind
But in this time and a hard life I'm having a hard time
With growing a thick skin 'cause I soak up all the hurt
And hold it all within and I've been this way from day

I never got no hugs when I fell down in the play ground
Maybe it would be different now
But how a mother's love gave so much to us, too
Made us soft but strong just like you

I see it coming true, we'll be soft like you

Hey, do you wanna be
Or don't you wanna be
Soft like me

Hey, do you wanna be
Or don't you wanna be
Soft like me

Yeah, you're a tough guy and a hard knot
Say you wanna do it, oh but a big butt
Scared to get into it 'cause when you gave your love and trust
Your heart got crushed, in a rush

Head got twisted up, files went corrupt, your system overload
As you went chugging down that lovely road
You could take the physical blows but emotional lows
Left him on the ropes

Somehow she always copes with the pain
And comes back again
Like, yeah, you know me, girl stay ready for the world
From the red corner, stay warmer
Born in optimistic hoping that his heart will open

Hey, do you wanna be
Or don't you wanna be
Soft like me

Hey, do you wanna be
Or don't you wanna be
Soft like me

Hey, do you wanna be
Or don't you wanna be
Soft like me
...
