Rejection

作詞:The Strypes/Josh McClorey     作曲:The Strypes/Josh McClorey

Ejected from the passenger seat
Rejection came to greet me like an empty street
You drove those little conversations
From the middle of creation to defeat

Acceptance is a kick in the shin
Maybe I should've kept the bandage on the skin
But babe I bit the bullet too quick
Built it up with a brick too thin

But I'm alright
Can't you see it in my eyes
I'm forcing a smile and a generous line and goodbye kiss
Yeah I'm just fine
Can't you hear it in my lies
Telling you it's all ok
Not to stay not you waste your time

Expected just a little less than this
Exchanged a little nudging for a fist
Now I felt the full blow, oh no
Go go gone and it's a miss

But I'm alright
Can't you see it in my eyes
I'm forcing a smile and a generous line and goodbye kiss
Yeah I'm just fine
Can't you hear it in my lies
Telling you it's all ok
Not to stay not to waste your time
