Lyrics

I'm Not Jewelry

Written By: Becca Bessinger

VERSE
I like chocolate
I write poetry
You wouldn’t know that
Cause you don’t know me

My first impression
Was you were dreamy
But it didn’t take long
For me to see

PRE-CHORUS
That you’d just hang me around your neck
Like a shimmering charm
I don’t know if you like me
But you like me on your arm

CHORUS
Well I’m not jewelry
I’m not your sparkle
Or your décor

You can’t use me
To dress up blue jeans
That’s not what I’m for

VERSE
You have a sister
You love the spring
Your dog and good coffee
I’m listening

And you’ve been talking
But our eyes just don’t meet
Cause yours are wandering
Wondering who sees

PRE-CHORUS
While you just hang me around your neck
Like a shimmering charm
I don’t know if you like me
But oh you like me on your arm

REPEAT CHORUS

BREAK

BRIDGE
I’m stronger than you know
I’m stronger than gold

PRE-CHORUS
And you won’t hang me around your neck
Like a shimmering charm
And I won’t shine for you
I won’t be on your arm

REPEAT CHORUS

You're Not Nice

Written By: Becca Bessinger

VERSE 1
I’d clean a clean house
Slide things from place to place
I’d fluff the couch
And I’d wait

You’d say you’d call
I’d pace all day
Near the phone on my wall
Just in case

CHORUS 1
But it never did ring
And I started seeing
How you’d been misleading
You’re not nice

VERSE 2
I went to town square
Where I knew you’d be
I meant to surprise you there
But oh you surprised me

Yeah I spotted you
Kissing some Barbie doll
I grabbed a box of Krispy Kremes
Went home and ate ‘em all
CHORUS 2
The taste was bitter-sweeter
And my mouth was never meaner
I cursed you and pitied her
Because you’re not nice

BRIDGE
Two weeks of grief and then relief
‘Cause I am better than this game
And by week three
I forgot your name

VERSE 3
Word on the street
Is that you’ve been feeling blue
When you called missing me
I asked “Now who are you?”

CHORUS 3
Don’t waste time on me Jack
Cause I will never be back
You are not “all that”
No you’re not nice

REPEAT BRIDGE

Supergirl

Written By: Becca Bessinger & Charlotte Ryerson

VERSE
Little girl, pure and free
Saying things I’d only think
Watching my face turn pink
Then you fly away like a bird

Spin and turn, arms wide out
Dizzy, falling to the ground
Bones of rubber, up you bounce
But you don’t feel hurt, Supergirl

CHORUS
Don’t ever let growing up spoil your fun
Paint the world as you do
With sky green and grass blue
Don’t mind your good clothes, load water in your gun
And shoot for the stars
Though they may seem far
From this world, Supergirl

VERSE
You’re laughing now, beauty bared
Despite the scrapes and tousled hair
Your whimsy and your careless air
One day you’ll know what that was worth

As you grow, you’ll hear these things
That you should think before you speak
That spinning around can make you sick
And falling sometimes hurts, Supergirl

REPEAT CHORUS

BREAK

REPEAT CHORUS
