The Party Lingers On

The Party Lingers On by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

We are all just politicians in a fuckbook kind of world
And I’m far from proper pretty ‘cause I’m just a little girl
Never tried to grow up but I’ve got big girl pants on
And no matter what you throw at me the party lingers on

I sit alone in solitude, and let connections linger
The chemicals that scrub my mind can’t get it any cleaner
And if I had a dollar every time I wouldn’t let you
Then I’d maybe have enough to buy the right drug to forget you

We are all just politicians in a fuckbook kind of world
And I’m far from proper pretty ‘cause I’m just a little girl
Never tried to grow up but I’ve got big girl pants on
And no matter what you throw at me the party lingers on

I smile a mile unflinchingly a few feet from your heart
You’re standing here right next to me although we’ve grown apart
But I just plain won’t stand here, and wait for this to end
I’m gonna take my smile from your rough sea of discontent

We are all just politicians in a fuckbook kind of world
And I’m far from proper pretty ‘cause I’m just a little girl
Never tried to grow up but I’ve got big girl pants on
And no matter what you throw at me the party lingers on
