lyrics

She had a forceful hand
I was her biggest fan
Every master plan she made it look so easy
It would have been so simple to impress me
But her secret's never what I hoped to find

Like a freeway ride until you hit the skids
She said 'smile pretty, make the most of it'
I'm a sweetheart, baby, til you hit that switch so you wait

I'll take my pretty hands
Make a battle plan
You can take a stand with us or you can watch me
Cuz when you raise your hands you make it harder
And every time you smile just makes it worse

Like a freeway ride until you hit the skids
She said 'smile pretty, make the most of it'
I'm a sweetheart, baby, til you hit that switch so you wait
I've got a long fuse burning with a brighter light
She said lean in, you've got another side
I'm a sweetheart, baby, til they cross that line so wait

When you raise your hands you make it harder
And every time you smile just makes it worse

Like a freeway ride until you hit the skids
She said 'smile pretty, make the most of it'
I'm a sweetheart, baby, til you hit that switch so you wait
I've got a long fuse burning with a brighter light
She said lean in, you've got another side
I'm a sweetheart, baby, til they cross that line so wait
