Tired Of Singing The Blues

This song is by Lana Del Rey.

You know sometimes I think God's playing a little game with me
Looking down from Heaven, laughing, trying to see how much I can take
Because the way things go, it's like a joke
Nobody's had more shots at the moon and missed than me

It's like I got my life stuck, stuck on rewind
Tryin' to make something of myself, life's got something else in mind
I'm fighting a losing game and I'm biding my time
You won't be my man, do I understand?

No, stop
I don't wanna hear another word about your why not's I bought
Your bullshit all before and now you're trying to sell me more, babe

A man who makes a beast out of himself got nothing to lose
Sold my soul long ago, nothing left to choose
I'm tired, tired of singing the blues
I'm tired, ah

I'm walking down the streets, you wouldn't know what I was thinking
It's just another white girl day, hey, ribbons in my hair and I am sinking down
A double life, a sordid past and I am drinking now
I want to be bad, you say you were glad to see me

Shut up
I don't wanna know another thing you think you know about me
I'm not who you think I am, smiling but I ain't happy

A man who makes a beast out of himself got nothing to lose
Sold my soul long ago, nothing I can choose
I'm tired, tired of singing the blues
I'm tired, ah

Oh, my super God, I can't turn off
My mind is like a ticking time bomb
Trying to kill me from inside
Haunting me day and night
Is there no remedy for memory?

I've felt this way before, I've known the depths of utter desperation
My boyfriend says I'm like an old movie star, with loneliness as my occupation
I know that he's right, but I don't care tonight
I want to be bad, I want to be bad

I can't stop
I keep running 'round the same town, knocking you down
I'm fucked
How can I get out when there's no where to go for miles around?

A man who makes a beast out of himself got nothing to lose
Sold my soul long ago, nothing I can choose
I'm tired, tired of singing the blues
I'm tired, ah!

Ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah
