cheerleader lyrics – st. vincent

“cheerleader”

i’ve had good times
with some bad guys
i’ve told whole lies
with a half smile
held your bare bones
with my clothes on
i’ve thrown rocks
that hit both my arms

i don’t know what good it serves
pouring my purse in the dirt

but i-i-i-i-i don’t wanna be your cheerleader no more
but i-i-i-i-i don’t wanna be your cheerleader no more

i’ve played dumb
when i knew better
tried so hard
just to be clever
i know honest thieves
i call family
i’ve seen america
with no clothes on

but i-i-i-i-i don’t wanna be a cheerleader no more
but i-i-i-i-i don’t wanna be a cheerleader no more

i don’t know what i deserve
but for you i could work

cause i don’t wanna be a cheerleader no more
i don’t wanna be a cheerleader no more
i don’t wanna be a cheerleader no more
i don’t wanna be a dirt eater no more
i don’t wanna be a dirt eater no more
i don’t wanna be a cheerleader no more
