Lyrics

AN AVERAGE WOMAN    

Some girls build towers, others dig deep
Some pray to angels, some wait and see
Some girls stay quiet, some scream in your face
Some kill their darlings, some hesitate

And I, I was an average woman
I tried to do good, I tried to be kind
Kept my head above water
Most of the time, most of the time

Some girls eat fire, some stick to their guns
Some dance on the tables and have all your fun
Some girls have answers, some retaliate
Some take on oceans, some take on fate

And I, I was an average woman
I tried to do good, I tried to be kind
Kept my head above water,
Most of the time, most of the time

I struggled and failed and I laughed at your jokes
I came to your aid when you needed me most
I screamed like a fury in the dead of the night
And curled up beside you to make right
