Lyrics:

You don’t know me///

Put the pedal to the floor
Look who’s keeping score
Put the pedal to the floor

When I turn the lights – stare at me
Try to rinse you off – just repeat
Words to shoot me down – ships to sink
You cut so quiet – casually

If I close my eyes – wish you away
Can’t tell if I want you to stay
If anything you help me concentrate
Hands folded – and behaved

I built you up – I can take you down
Flown high – you pulled me underground
Heard it all before
I’m done listening
Tick tock. Fast forward – father hand
No time to come in second
Won’t smile, bow again as your runner up

You don’t know me///

Put the pedal to the floor
Look who’s keeping score
Put the pedal to the floor

“Gettin paper’s” – not my currency
Might be hated – but good company
I never earned – finer things
Tired of trying – I was made to sing

Saw my thoughts – not interesting
Told me I might need a pill r to think
Said I was safe – I believed
But in the shallows there was a monster underneath

Shut all the other voices up
I’ll show em that they’ve got me all wrong
I’m gonna hold pictures of –
All the things they said would never come
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I’m no runner up
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
They don’t know me and don’t have to know
All the dust I kicked up in the dark
I know it’s been a messy road
I’m breathing cuz the best is yet to come
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
I’m no runner up
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
