maisie peters – zero lyrics

Loading...

[verse 1]
i’m starting from zero
i’m starting from scratch
thought i’d finally grown up
seems that i’m just growing back
people tell you you’ll learn from mistakes that you make
but i just keep on breaking ’em again and again
i just wanted to please everybody at once
but i can’t stand confrontation, rather cut it and run
and i see now i should’ve stuck it out and explained
hindsight’s a b-tch for coming way too late
i used to be able to say it wasn’t me
used to be able to say it wasn’t me

[chorus]
so i’ve got a loaded gun
and i seem to fire it just for kicks
’cause i miss every time, i just hit you
and i guess i should’ve read the manual that i came with
’cause now i’m just taking out my friends
i’m just taking ’em all down
i was just takin ’em all down

[verse 2]
i was burning through bridges like a child with a flame
setting fire to everything in a twenty-meter range
i think i need a signpost so you’d all understand
i’m a tryer, but my fire sometimes gets out of hand
’cause once i start i just can’t seem to stop
so i run my mouth and watch my friends run off

[chorus]
so i’ve got a loaded gun
and i seem to fire it just for kicks
’cause i miss every time, i just hit you
and i guess i should’ve read the manual that i came with
’cause now i’m just taking out my friends
i’m just taking ’em all —

[post-chorus]
down deep inside i know that i am better than this train-wreck hot-head who should’ve listened when her mum said, “won’t you think about what you’re saying?
“mais, this ain’t a game you’re good at playing
you’re too afraid of hurting feelings
to be good at playing people in the first place”
i was just taking them all down

[bridge]
i’m starting from zero, gonna try put it right
i know when i take a step
i’m always two steps behind
blame the education system for putting junk in my head
fills up all of the sp-ce, leaves no room for clear sense
they taught me spelling and arithmetic
i wish that they’d taught me how to not be such a … horrible person

[chorus]
so i’ve got a loaded gun
and i seem to fire it just for kicks
’cause i miss every time i just hit you
and i guess i should’ve read the manual that i came with
’cause now i’m just taking out my friends
oh, i’m just taking ’em all —

[post-chorus]
down deep inside i know that i am better than this train-wreck hot-head who should’ve listened when her mum said, “won’t you think about what you’re saying?
“mais, this ain’t a game you’re good at playing
you’re too afraid of hurting feelings
to be good at playing people in the first place”
