Malia Cortez – Tinman lyrics


Strange
But I am stranger than him
I’m STRANGE
I’m strange, I’m strange, I’m strange

But I want to be a tinman now
No heart and no feelings
I want to be a tinman now all that metal
Will protect me, yes
I want to be a tinman now
All that metal will protect me from your arms
Your warm arms
I want to be a tinman now
No heart, no feelings
I want to be a tinman now
Your kiss on my cold tin lips
Will rust them shut
My cold lips
Will stay shut I don’t like to think about getting old and grey
I like things just the way they are today
Mirror, mirror tell me please
Will I always have to take the bus
Up, up and away
Leaving me behind to cry

I want to, to blame you but I know better, my dear
I have to blame my heart
It’s faulty
Can you fix it? You inhaled my very soul then you turned to go
Kicking up the dirt into my eyes

I want to, to tie you up and slap you
Till you get it, my dear
I want to, to punch out random people
People on the street
I want to, I want to

I want to be a tinman now
No heart and no feelings
I want to be a tinman now
All the metal will protect me from your touch
Your soft touch

By this point I bet you think I’m strange
Those who thought they knew me like Mr. Well, then just toss it
I don’t want it if it might break again

Something old and something new doesn’t have much to do with you
Or does it?
