lyrics

I’ve had enough boyfriends to start a dating company
but I’ve been brave enough to say repeatedly
(repeatedly repeatedly repeatedly)

that I. am not. enough. for you. 
cause you. are not. enough. for me.
not meant to be... 
bad chemistry...

I am not imagining that all the pretty things that you say might be well disguised
I can find a million lies in harmony
we justify, we’re just in time, to make ourselves believe

but I... I am not asleep
I’m not machinery
imposed by practicality

I am not uncomfortable with making plans for days and days
then throwing them all away
they say lightning can’t strike twice in the same place 
but I’ve beat the odds before and I’m doing it again
(and again and again) 

Hey Engineer!
I’m not machinery!
imposed by practicality

Hey hey hey hey....

...I.... wish..... you.... a.... thousand.... miles... away
you... have... never..... been.... there.... anyway

You design materials
but I’ve got a thousand bricks to lay
I’m not waiting for the architect
cause I have a right to fail
and I have a right to lose my way

we are born incredible... 
we are born incredible...
we are born incredible...

blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
I didn’t make words to this part and I’m not gonna try
blueprints don’t define who I wanna be
I make it up as I go according to me...

Hey Engineer!
I’m not machinery!
I am me........!

Hey hey hey hey....

This should teach you not to try and predict me.
