Bravado Lyrics

All my life
I've been fighting a war
I can't talk to you or your friends
It's not only you
My heart jumps around when I'm eluded to
This will not do

    This is another song about the life of a celebrity.

    All my life, I've been fighting a war, I can't talk to you or your friends, it's not only you, my heart jumps around when I'm alluded to, this will not do, cause I was raised up, to be admired to be admired to be noticed, but when you're withdrawn it's the closest thing, to assault when all eyes are on you, this will not do.

    I'm faking glory, lick my lips toss my hair and turn the smile on, and the story's brand new, but I can take it from here, I'll find my own bravado.

    It's a switch flipped, It's a pill tipped back it's a moon eclipsed oh-woah, and I can tell you that when the lights come on I'll be ready for this, It's in your bloodstream, a collision of atoms that happens before your eyes, it's a marathon run or a mountain you scale without thinking of size.

    See what I mean
