"EZ target"

Music and Lyrics by Rachael Yamagata

From the album TIGHTROPE WALKER out 9/23

 

AS YOU’RE SITTING IN THE STAIRWELL WITH YOUR HANDS BEHIND YOUR BACK

WONDERING HOW YOU’LL MAKE A DIFFERENCE WHEN YOU’RE UNDER AN ATTACK

REMEMBER THERE’S NO GRACEFUL WAY TO GO AFTER AN EASY TARGET

 

THEY MAY THINK THEY’VE HURT YOUR FEELINGS

BUT YOU KNOW HOW TO SPOT A FAKE

YOU CAN THROW DOWN WITH THE BEST OF THEM 

YOU WON’T MAKE THAT MISTAKE

REMEMBER THERE’S NO GRACEFUL WAY TO GO AFTER AN EASY TARGET

 

WHO SAYS IT’S RIGHT

WHO SAYS IT’S WRONG

I’M FULL TONIGHT

YOU’RE HOLDING A SMOKING GUN

 

OH YOUR MOTHER TAUGHT FORGIVENESS BUT IT’S HARDER TO FORGET

WE ALL BLEED WHEN WE ARE BORN AND WE WILL BLEED UNTIL WE’RE DEAD

AND WE WILL SHOW OUR TEETH TO ANYONE AT EVERY SIGN OF DANGER

 

AND I DON’T TAKE ON ANY FIGHT THAT CAN’T BE FIXED RIGHT FROM THE START

AND I WON’T LAY DOWN WITH TWO PEOPLE WHO’VE BEEN FIGHTING FROM THE HEART

BUT I WILL SHOW MY TEETH TO ANYONE FOR I’M NOBODY’S EASY TARGET

 

WHO SAYS IT’S RIGHT

WHO SAYS IT’S WRONG

I’M FULL TONIGHT

YOU’RE HOLDING A SMOKING GUN

 

AS YOU’RE SITTING IN THE STAIRWELL WITH YOUR HANDS BEHIND YOUR BACK

SPIN AROUND AND LET THEM FREE – LIFE IS NOTHING BUT A DANCE

BUT CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY FOR THEY’LL BECOME AN EASY TARGET
