Mitski – Townie lyrics

[Verse 1]
There's a party and we're all going
And we're all growing up
Somebody's driving and he will be drinking
And no one's going back
Cause we've tried hungry and we've tried full
And nothing seems enough
So tonight, tonight, the boys are gonna go
For more, more, more

[Chorus]
And I want a love that falls as fast
As a body from the balcony, and
I want to kiss like my heart is hitting the ground
I'm holding my breath with a baseball bat
Though I don't know what I'm waiting for
I am not gonna be what my daddy wants me to be

[Verse 2]
Smell that, it's wet grass, and smoke in my hair
I think I've had enough
But he wants a finale and I came prepared
And we're not going back
And I've tried sharing and I've tried caring
And I've tried putting out
But the boys, boys, boys keep coming on
For more, more, more
And change, change, change is gonna come, but
When, when, when?

[Chorus 2]
And I want a love that falls as fast
As a body from the balcony, and
I want to kiss like my heart is chasing me down
I'm holding my breath with a baseball bat
Though I don't know what I'm waiting for
I am not gonna be what my daddy wants me to be

[Chorus]
And I want a love that falls as fast
As a body from the balcony, and
I want to kiss like my heart is hitting the ground
I'm holding my breath with a baseball bat
Though I don't know what I'm waiting for
I am not gonna be what my daddy wants me to be

[Outro]
I'm not gonna be what my daddy wants me to be
I wanna be what my body wants me to be
