lyrics

Bulletproof – lyrics
Glidin smooth across the floor
Find my way to her

Feelin dapper in my $200 suit
Feelin confident

“Well I suppose it’s goin alright,”
That’s what she said
When I asked, I asked her how it’s goin

“I suppose mine’s goin exactly the same
At least, that’s what I tell myself to get a decent sleep at night.”

She didn’t ask my opinion
She didn’t look up at all
And when you feel that dejection
Risin up like a ball
Well it pounds at your chest
And you think – what a bitch
-----------------------------------------------
Pickin out potential targets
Through a crude gin-fueled reverse-Darwinian process

Flyin with my wingman by side
Can’t shoot me down
Ya know I’m feelin bulletproof

But when she punched a million little holes into my armor
Well it kinda set me back a step or two

And it wasn’t what I was expecting
No, what I was expecting
Was an evening full of harmless flirtation
Followed by a morning full of awkward good-byes

She didn’t ask my opinion
She didn’t look up at all
And when you feel that dejection
Risin up like a ball
Well it pounds at your chest
And you think – Is it me?
-----------------------------------------------
Glidin smooth across the floor
Figure I owe myself another chance

Not gonna take “no” for an answer this time
At least not so easily

“You don’t have a cell phone?
What do you mean you don’t have a cell phone?!
It’s 2013, at least you could’ve told me something
That’s not a lie to me!”

And what’s the point in always trying to fly
If I just get shot down everywhere
Everywhere that I go

She didn’t ask my opinion
She didn’t look up at all
And when you feel that dejection
Risin up like a ball
Well it pounds at your chest
And you think – maybe a bar isn’t the best place to meet a woman
