lyrics

You’re city people
You like to live alone
You’re older than your parents were
When you were born

You know how time flies
But it’s hard for you to see
You wait for it to feel
Like an emergency

And you want to have his babies
But you know you won’t
You could call him up right now
But you know better so you don’t
There’s nothing wasted
Or at least that’s what they say
But you’re not getting any younger babe

We’ve all got secrets
And some are very small
You’re not too cool
For ordinary life at all

Sometimes you wonder
What you’re running from or to
And when you can’t keep running
What you’re gonna do

There’s a reason why you drink so much these days
Whisky blurs the lines of age
You’ve started seeing in your face
There’s no escaping
The kind of trouble that you’re in
The game you’re playing baby no one wins

And the boy you didn’t marry
Wouldn’t know you now
You could never quite explain it
You just had to leave somehow
There’s no returning
To any place where you were young
You’re not still waiting are you
For your charming prince to come
You’re not still waiting are you
For your prince to come
