about

An impulsively written song about some of the lies I tell myself.

lyrics

I'm not sick its just my allergies
so sorry if I sneeze on you
if I go to bed at 2 am I won't be tired in the morning
thats just how my body is supposed to work
signing up for 30,000 after school activities wont take up 90% of my time
if I start this episode now I can totally still do my homework before the dawn comes around

la la lies I tell myself to get to sleep at night
la la la la lies that I tell myself so I will be alright

i read more than i watch tv
thats totally a thing
and I definitely have the money to splurge on this utterly pointless thing
rhyming a word with the same word in a song is just poetic
and not a sad excuse not to find a rhyme
and watching eight episodes of friends in a row is absolutely a good use of my time

la la lies I tell myself to get to sleep at night
la la la la lies that I tell myself so I will be alright

that crush that I have is totally rational
and it's gonna happen if I just wait around
and not doing my homework at all is not going to affect me negatively in any way
not remembering the lyrics to my own songs is normal
and everyone improvises songs on their guitars
and I only take a few selfies a day
and it's not at all an obsession that I have
every single person loves show tunes as much as I do
and it's not weird at all
I totally have my future under control
I'm not breaking under pressure, to be perfect, oh
and I’m so prepared to be an adult
I totally know how to do taxes they’re really easy
and becoming an actress is a stable career choice

la la la lies i tell myself to get to sleep at night
la la la la lies that i tell myself so i will be alright

But who am I kidding right?
