Verse
She's rich and beautiful.
She's safe from your tools.
You won't cut her up so bad that all she
Sees in the mirror is an ugly face.
Can't blame it all on you, it worked on me,
Cause I was insecure in the first place.
Verse
She may lack confidence too,
But I know she's safe from you,
Because your kind only ever preys on
Things with a constant blinding binding light,
And not on things drenched in glitter which
Will come off in twenty years come midnight.
Chorus
I'm not nineteen anymore.
And all your jabs, taunts and criticisms
No longer leave me on the floor.
But sometimes I do remember
What it was like to be constantly told that I lack
Everything that makes one desirable,
I remember you painting my whole word black.
Verse
She's all you want in your woman.
She's all I won't be- I'm human.
And you're no longer what I'm looking for-
All fun and games till you tear me apart.
I want real, I want flawed, I want kindness now,
I want a listening ear and a loving heart.
Chorus
I'm not nineteen anymore.
And all your jabs, taunts and criticisms
No longer leave me on the floor.
But sometimes I do remember
What it was like to be constantly told that I lack
Everything that makes one desirable,
I remember you painting my whole word black.
Bridge
I can't say you can't find happiness
From stacks of cash and a pretty face.
Cause I've seen the world enough to know,
There are people who are indeed that low.
But I'm not one of them.
And I don't want one of them.
So take her hand, and play your game.
I wrote this song so it's all the same
To me once I put down my paper and pen.
This is the last time, never again.
Chorus
I'm not nineteen anymore.
And all your jabs, taunts and criticisms
No longer leave me on the floor.
But sometimes I do remember
What it was like to be constantly told that I lack
Everything that makes one desirable,
I remember you painting my whole word black.
