Stolen Song

from by Rae Spoon

lyrics

If you grew up in a nothing town
where they sing the same song in every house.
Then I can see what made you so hungry
to stick up, to stand out
to be set apart, to make a sound.
To be someone new in the big city.

You can try it on
but you can take it off
and that’s why it doesn’t belong to you.
It’s a stolen song.

I you grew up in a nothing town
where they sing the same song in every house.
That’s what made me so hungry
to stick up, to stand out
to be set apart, to make a sound.
To be someone new in the big city.

I could try it on
but I could take it off
and that’s why it doesn’t belong to me.
It’s a stolen song.

You can try it on
but you can take it off
and that’s why it doesn’t belong to you.
It’s a stolen song.

I could try it on
but I could take it off
and that’s why it doesn’t belong to me.
It’s a stolen song.
