Crown Jewels – He's So Zen lyrics

I watch you sleeping, well you ain't keeping no secrets from me
I know where you wanna be
You're always keeping warm in my burgundy bed
And I'm in my nervous head

You insult my intelligence, when you tell me he's just a friend
And now I can't sleep

'Cause I know I can't compete
Not with Niko, he's a painter, he's so zen

You're always fishing, wishing I'd come and hug a tree
But I need to feel concrete.
Now don't go thinking just 'cause I run like a rat in a maze
That my heart ain't in the right place

It's a bad situation, a hazard of my occupation
I got no time for peace

So I know I can't compete, I ain't complete
Not like Niko, he's a painter, he's so zen

I can't compete, I know I can't compete
Not with Niko, no no

I can't compete, I'm incomplete
