Cady Groves – The Life Of A Pirate lyrics

It's not easy to be this complicated
'Cause I lose my way, I change my mind
And I'm more recently jaded
Or I'll be indecisive and always end up choosing
The wrong thing
But I can guarantee you'll never hear me say
That all I want is a home, a family, a porch swing

'Cause I wanna' be a pirate
That's one thing I've decided
It's the only thing that could ever intrigue me
There's no start or end in sight
And I guess I'll have to try it
Worse case I'll get swallowed by the deep blue sea
There's no more trying to fight it
The pain I'll leave behind me
The sweet imperfections of a hot mess of a girl

And I believe in miracles
But there's know way that I'll
Ever fit in
To the modern way of living
It's just not me
Work a nine to five live in complacency
But I gave it my all
I tried, really I swear
For a girl on her own
But after over analyzing everything there is here
It's time for my ship and fresh air

'Cause I wanna' be a pirate
That's one thing I've decided
It's the only thing that could ever intrigue me
There's no start or end in sight
And I guess I'll have to try it
Worse case I'll get swallowed by the deep blue sea
There's no more trying to fight it
The pain I'll leave behind me
The sweet imperfections of a hot mess of a girl

And if I know me, like I think I know me
I'll try to bargain with myself
I'll tell myself it's really not that bad
And I'll try to stick it out
A little longer in society never killed no one

But I can tell you
It's a guarantee that I'll
Always run away from every problem or severed relationship
'Cause that's who I am
I wanna' be a pirate 'cause they get to be
Whoever they want on deep blue see
Here I come
