lyrics

She spins stories out of thin air, tell you ‘bout her nightmare, and make it seem real,

She’ll feed you at her table, laugh when you’re unable, it’s no big deal;

She opens all the windows, sees what no one else knows about your fears,

She’ll wrap herself around you, very nearly drown you in her tears.

Days go by and she won’t even call,

Then she’s flying at you like a human cannonball,

And what’s so weird is, it ain’t weird at all.

She knows forty constellations, all her cable stations, some poetry,

She’s got water in her basement, knows where to place her apostrophes;

When her cooking’s a disaster, you can hear her laughter echo through the trees,

When she’s reading by the window, you can feel her heart break piece by piece.

Days go by and she won’t even call,

Then she’s flying at you like a human cannonball,

And what’s so weird is, it ain’t weird at all.

Now you can’t remember, where or when you met her,

But you know one thing’s for sure,

Your new normal is a whole lot better,

Than the one you knew before.

Days go by and she won’t even call,

Then she’s flying at you like a human cannonball,

And what’s so weird is, it ain’t weird at all.

She lies underneath a full moon, singing to you out of tune, but you don’t care,

She needs you just to love her, never ever judge her if you dare.

Days go by, she won’t even call,

Then she’s flying at you like a human cannonball,

And what’s so weird is, it ain’t weird at all.

Yeah, what’s so weird is, it ain’t weird at all.

What’s so weird is, it ain’t weird (at all), what’s so weird is, it ain’t weird,

What’s so weird is, it ain’t weird (at all), what’s so weird is, it ain’t weird,

What’s so weird is, it ain’t weird (at all), what’s so weird is, it ain’t weird.
