Lyrics

Oh, Tori (Keep Your Hands to Yourself)

Written By: Jessica DeFino

Oh Tori, you look at me like he could do better
and you pranc around him trying to show off in your tight black sweater.
Tori, you don't phase me
I know that I am all he needs
all your flirting, all of your jokes
aren't enough to make him forget about me.

CHORUS
Oh, Tori, Keep your hands to yourself
oh, Tori, keep your hands to yourself
don't think that I can't see you
don't think he'll ever need you
don't think that he is something you might eventually get
'cause Tori, he's my boy
and I'm not ready to give him up just yet.

You wear too much makeup
but you always look like you stepped out of a magazine
you know you're too young for him
Tori, you are only 14
Tori I don't worry, all he wants he's got right here
but Tori, I've got to admit:
sometimes even I get a little scared so

CHORUS

Oh Tori, Oh Tori,
you could get anyone you wanted
and you know you can
So Tori
stay away from my man

CHORUS

You're Not Cute

Written By: Jessica DeFino

Behind your crooked glasses
there is that goofy stare
and undernetah your old baseball cap
is that shock of red hair.
Sometimes it's even hard to look you in the eye
what once was endearing, now makes me realize:

CHORUS
You're not cute enough to do this to me
You're not cute enough to cry over
You're not cute enough to do this to me
No, you're not cute, so I'll have
and easy time getting over
you, you
you, yeah you

Alright I'll give you that
you were intelligent
I could hand you any big word
and you would tell me what it meant but
You lack certain qualities I think are important
You weren't funny, weren't cool, you tried too hard
in short

CHORUS

Now this might sound cruel
but what am I supposed to say
You went running back to her
she can have you anyway
she'll soon find out what I already know
You're not cute enough to be such an asshole

CHORUS

Comfortable

Written By: Jessica DeFino

And you say you're sorry you won't be here to hear this song for you.
you say, "don't worry, I know it'll be great, and you know it too."
I know I'd go however far I had
to be there when you needed me
you won't do the same
and it's got me thinking

CHORUS
You don't love me, you're just so comfortable
I think I could deal with that as long as you didn't know
oh, oh
You don't want me, you just like the idea
I think I could live with that as long as you didn't leave
oh, oh

Manufactured words coming from your brain, you think that it's your heart.
and you don't know better now, at least you meant it at the start.
at least I know now what you say
that you mean isn't really what you feel inside
how long until you figure this out?

CHORUS

Oh please oh please
I'll take you anyway that I can
I know that you are unaware
and it seems you're blind but
come on, come on
come on, come on
we're running out of time

CHORUS

and it's got me thinking
