Jenny Lewis – The New You lyrics

When the twin towers fell and it all went to hell
I knew you'd believe in me soon
It's what tore us apart, you perfect the art
Of making it all about you
But I can read your fortune
Just lay out your palm
Whatever you're avoiding will greet at the dawn

Because it's a new you every day
Putting on a different face
And the farther that you run from me
How will you overcome it?
It's a new you every day

And you struggle with sobriety
Dreams of known variety
Listening to kill 'em all
Tend for high society, social anxiety
We missed you at the head bang's ball

But I can read your fortune
Just lay out your palm
Whatever you're avoiding
They will all sing along

Because it's a new you every day
Putting on a different face
And the farther that you run from me
How will you overcome it?
It's a new you every day!

Where you come from
Gets the best of you!

Because it's a new you every day
And when I loved you, I used to say
The farther that we run from it
How will we overcome it?
It's a new you every day
