Rilo Kiley – Ripchord lyrics

Pull the ripchord
The ship has lost it's sail
Your mama's got a new man
Your daddy always fails
And you're eating again
At them
'cause nobody loves you

And even fancy things
Have finally lost their charm
Wine and diamond rings
They never get you anymore
You're sleeping again
'cause nobody loves you

They should have seen you
Should have known you
Should have known what it was like
To be you

So come on kid
Look at what you did
I don't know if you meant it
But you did yourself in
And I was even having a good day
When I'd found out we lost you

She said it was in the singing and the strumming
Oh man I even saw it coming
