Cry When You Get Older

Cry When You Get Older

Robyn

Hey girl in the strobing light
What your mama never told ya
Is love hurts when you do it right
You can cry when you get older

Young boy by the traffic light
What your daddy never told ya
Is love hurts when you do it right
You can cry when you get older

Hold up a second, now I got something on my dirty mind
I start out with good intentions but mess it up like all the time
I try to keep up appearance but always end up way out of line
I need some kind of miracle, 'cause I lost all my faith in science
So I put my faith in me

She said
There just must be more to life than this
He said
Careful, 'cause you might just get your wish

(Everybody in the back singing)
Hey girl in the strobing light
What your mama never told ya
Is love hurts when you do it right
You can cry when you get older

(Everybody singing)
Young boy by the traffic light
What your daddy never told ya
Is love hurts when you do it right
You can cry when you get older

Back in suburbia kids get high and make out on the train
Then endless incomprehensible boredom takes a hold again
And in this other dream I'm on top of the world, ahead of the game
Think of reality and it hits me hardcore to the brain
We gotta get away

She said
There just must be more to life than this
He said
Careful, 'cause you might just get your wish

(Everybody in the back singing)
Hey girl in the strobing light
What your mama never told ya
Is love hurts when you do it right
You can cry when you get older

(Everybody in the front)
Young boy by the traffic light
What your daddy never told ya
Is love hurts when you do it right
You can cry when you get older
Hey

Bet your mama never told you that
Nah
