the paint i bought won’t dry

the paint i bought won’t dry
you can’t be too beautiful

i’m gonna show / don’t need experience
i’m more compatible with women / not girls

you just leave / they messed up
you don’t have to / leave it all up to me

and if you ever rule my world
you don’t have to be rich

i want to be your school
not your book of rules

ain’t no fantasy
gonna keep you warm and dry
