lyrics

I don't know how to close my ears or close my eyes
But I don't think that I could take it if you were to criticise
If you were to criticise

I do not wear the thickest of skins
I find I take in sunlight better if I keep it thin but you call it sensitive
You call it sensitive

I sang soprano in the choir
But I've always been a liar
I've always been a liar

I know you can't place me right
If only I'd be simple and stay in one box in plain sight
But we are not archetypes
We are not archetypes

I sang soprano in the choir
But I've always been a liar
I've always been a liar

Do you think I am a pretty girl?
Or am I more a femme fatale?
I'm stronger than you'd ever think and somehow I'm still delicate
I'm the child, the tower, the empress, and the world

But since I'm both a virgin and a whore
I'll be the sun, the star, the moon, and I'll be more
And if you refuse to see that I'm the hero and the beast
Then you're the fool and I'm an alto now for sure

I sang soprano in the choir
But I've always been a liar
I've always been a liar
