Hand Me Downs

Hand Me Downs

Lyrics
I know we’re in September
And this is my house
And this is my town
But my clothes are in the case, and I am leaving
Don’t tell me what you spent it on
You always lie, you always lie
and it’s a decision, I am leaving
We used to say for fun,
Let’s say you lived, and then you did
You were the leader of us all- the perfect fall
You speak to the weak, an old picture of me
Everybody says they want to be free
and it’s a decision, so I am leaving
The powder’s in the kitchen
The spoon is on the floor
Your sister says it’s different now
I don’t believe her anymore
And I don’t want your hand-me-downs
They’re old, they’re all worn out
No, I don’t want to hang around
I don’t want your hand-me-downs
So now I’m in this hotel room
I’m free and droning on
But the music’s way too loud
I wanna skip to the next song
The glass is on the counter
The sheets are on the floor
Your sister says it’s not the same
I don’t believe her anymore
I don’t want your hand-me-downs
they’re old, they’re all worn out
I don’t want to hang around
I don’t want your hand-me-downs
So you’ll lie yourself to sleep tonight
but you won’t think of me
Cause your world revolves around you
Or so it seems, or so it seems
And you can’t get off
And I can’t get on
And yourself is all you see
So I don’t want to hang around
I don’t want your hand-me-downs
Anymore
You speak to the weak
An old picture of me
Everybody says they want to be free
So I am leaving
