lyrics

Daddy said when I was young,
With a hard heart and a heavier tongue,
Not much that I could understand.
Not 'til much later would his heavy words land.

My fragile frame breaks again
as I stretch up to touch the sky you forgot my name.
There weren’t any games
just boards,
planks in our eyes.
That’s what the preacher meant when he said 'such is life.'


Hopscotch and Bourbon,
Grapejuice and Wine.
Jump ropes, strung out hopes
Strung up just a little too high

You're ballerina danced a little too far.
The pink bled to red,
don’t you regret
your princesses scars.

Resemblance in my furrowed brow,
a will that rises with that old house,
that’s foundation was built
from the inside out.
Is that all it is now, is that all I am now?

Hopscotch and Bourbon,
Grapejuice and Wine.
Jump ropes, strung out hopes
Strung up just a little too high

You're ballerina danced a little too far.
The pink bled to red,
don’t you regret
your princesses scars.

Now I run on adrenaline and love.
All else was stolen from the basement full of bones,
Sticks and Stones,
and words that never made much sense. Well,
I was young and they’ve landed since.
Now I run on adrenaline and love.
I see how you struggle to call that preacher man's bluff.
I see your insides, your heavy stride.
Now you run on adrenaline and love.
Now I know what I've been of...

Hopscotch and Bourbon,
Grapejuice and Wine.
Jump ropes, strung out hopes
Strung up just a little too high

You're ballerina danced
just far enough, to know
it's fine, yeah it's alright,
to grow up on adrenaline and love.
