Number 1

from by Allie



Youve been away
Now where did you go?
Im your only friend so Im supposed to know
Youll never top the holidays my family has saved for
So you spent the summer getting sick?
So you were not well? As if I give a shit
And instead of going out and tanning
you had to stay over at that house
of hers

Passing there it bothers me
cause Ive been only once and you go constantly
So I make it right before and take another way
back home
Its the kind of road you only like
if youve walked it since you were a child
Youll get to know my razor blade
unless youll be a man and try to race me here

Now tell me are you scared?
Cause I would be
is what the fortune teller said to me
Made me feel a little chilly
though I know its kind of silly
cause those rituals have always been
either crimes or sins or something in between
Those people aint no doctors
Theyre just poking in the fog
you know?

But then again science isnt always right
Actually it changed a lot throughout my life
And that lady shuffled cards
like she had studied it in class
Also had a bunch of cats who seemed to know a lot
Dont you think the way they look at you is kind of odd?
Keep their eyes on you like a gun
as if they know what you have done

I bet you never won a fight and never lost an incisor
Good for you but let me tell you what it takes
to be number 1

Is this what you wanted when you said
you'll get the best out of life huh?
Its a start but let me tell you it takes a lot more
to be number 1

Youve been away
Now where did you go?
Its not easy for me too, you know
because according to the cards
there is a puzzle in my heart
And Im not sure how to handle it
Told me I will lose and I dont wanna give a shit
I hope the road will understand
that things got a little out of hand

Sometimes I am wrong and you are right
and the only friend that Ive had all my life
Now its not easy to decipher
if they cheer or if they cry
for me
