lyrics

It's 3am on a Thursday
And I'm far from sleep
And I've got a confession
Baby, you're the secret
That I just can't keep to myself

Cause I'm scratching at the surface
And I’m puling out all my hair
Making room inside me now
For someone who was never really there

Now I’m tossing in my blankets
And I’m sweating in my sheets
And I left a little bit of the job for you to complete


So you’re talking me up
But never lay me down
I’m screaming real loud
But you don’t make a sound
I don’t need to know
I’ll just turn my head


Little girl thought her ship was sinking
But then she got to thinking
And a little revelation ensued

She said,
The only thing you need to know
Is how to learn to let him go
Goodbye, goodbye
Hello, hello

Cause I don’t need your half
To make me whole
Cause I’m a little arsenal
Just waiting to blow
I’ve got to tame my restless, rocking soul
Before time turns my diamonds
Back into coal



Cause when your head starts to ache
And your mind starts to churn
And the earth starts to shake
And the bed starts to burn
Well, I think I know what happens next
Here comes the mighty rise
Of the weaker sex

And let me tell you,
When it rains
It pours
Cause I never leave me wanting more
I’m a tempest in female form
So have a seat, child
Watch me storm


So, you used to
Talk me up
But never lay me down
And I used to be lost
But now I am found

Cause it doesn’t take your rock
To make me roll…
