Alessia Cara My Song Lyrics

Tune in to find my peace and solitude

These empty rooms spin, and I embrace the flaws of being human

The black and white… and sometimes the greys that stay for days

The in between time

The meantime that make this song of life sing

Play, rest, repeat, read exactly what is written on the sheet

“Don’t deviate, ” they say

But I will play what’s best for me

I’ll press the keys and pull the strings

Create a symphony that’s mine

And I’ll spend my life penning my song, my song

And the verses I write will speak for me

Good girls don’t make history

So I may never be what you assume

Don’t want your hooks or auto-tune

If I’m off-key then that’s alright with me

Oh and maybe you will learn this when I’m gone

My song will carry on

Let go

I let my voice be heard, then listen for the echo

My own reverb is playing

Cause I’m a movement

There’s dissonance, sometimes I make mistakes

So I’m human after all, I’m not your expectations

But play, rest, repeat, that’s what they ask of me

Just stick to this melody and stay between the lines

But I’ll play what’s best for me

I’ll ring the bells and crash the cymbals

My harmonious desire

And I’ll spend my life penning my song, my song

And the verses I write will speak for me

Good girls don’t make history

So I may never be what you assume

Don’t want your hooks or auto-tune

If I’m off-key then that’s alright with me

Oh and maybe you will learn this when I’m gone

My song will carry on

In my time here, I wanna be revered and remembered

Oh let them say I came, I conquered

So I won’t fear and I can’t blend in

You can’t replace me and you cannot erase me

Cause my song will live on beyond time

And I’ll spend my life penning my song, my song

And the verses I write will speak for me

Good girls don’t make history

So I may never be what you assume

Don’t want your hooks or auto-tune

If I’m off-key then that’s alright with me

Oh and maybe you will learn this when I’m gone

My song will carry on

And I’ll spend my life penning my song, my song

And the verses I write will speak for me

Good girls don’t make history

So I may never be what you assume

Don’t want your hooks or auto-tune

If I’m off-key then that’s alright with me

Oh and maybe you will learn this when I’m gone

My song will carry on
