Lyrics

So carefully thrown together
Moves from the movies, a couple of shots for the stage fright
No one knows about the shoplifted earrings
Brown eyes can make it if you play it right

Well, the secret is trying just a little too hard
Just the way all the other girls are
Feels a little like going to war
But it's this or stay home with the dirty dishes

Daddy doesn't know and Mama doesn't know
What the bright lights do
What the good girls don't

We're the voices in your head
And we hope for the best, we hope for the best for you
But you've gotta work it out
We'll keep your secrets till you're dead
Still we hope for the best, we hope for the best for you
But you've gotta work it out
Sheena Never

Always such a high-stakes situation
Dance like everybody's watching, it's the measure of your sacrifice
A front row seat to your bespoke complication
'Cuz God knows you're a veteran of thirty-five

Well, the secret is going just a little too far
Just the way you think all the other girls are
Feels familiar, like selling your soul
But it's this or stay home with your worn-down conscience

Daddy doesn't know and Mama doesn't know
What the bright lights do
What the good girls don't

We're the voices in your head
And we hope for the best, we hope for the best for you
But you've gotta work it out
We'll keep your secrets till you're dead
Still we hope for the best, we hope for the best for you
But you've gotta work it out
Sheena Never
