Wye Oak - Civilian

I have been listening to this song over and over and over.....goosebumps.


Civilian by Wye Oak

                                                                                    
I am nothing without pretend
I know my thoughts
Can’t live with them
I am nothing without a man
I know my thoughts
But I can’t hide them

I still keep my baby teeth
In the bedside table with my jewelry
You still sleep in the bed with me,
My jewelry, and my baby teeth

I don’t need another friend
When most of them
I can barely keep up with them
Perfectly able to hold my own hair,
But I still can’t kiss my own neck

I wanted to give you everything
But I still stand in awe of superficial things
I wanted to love you like my mother’s mother’s mothers did
Civilian
Civilian
