lyrics

RUBBER BAND
(written by Alfa Garcia/BMI & Ainjel Emme/ASCAP)

I’m like a rubber band
stretch me out until I snap back into your hand,
a good little girl.

And what am I supposed to be?
quiet and sweet, but in actuality
you don’t know the half of me.

Wait, just you wait
til I break
til I’m thin as paper
Maybe you’d know
all this time
I held us together
for the sake of the show
I did it all for show
for the sake of the show… you would know.

You’re walkin’ on a wire
for the world to see
but is it steel beneath your feet
or is it me? Is it me?

Don’t confuse me for a safety net
I could lead you over but we’re not there yet, so

Wait, just you wait
til I break
til I’m thin as paper
Maybe you’d know
all this time
I held us together
for the sake of the show
I did it all for show
for the sake of the show… whoa, no, well you would know.

If you’re wasting time believing I could be
the kind of girl who’d never wrestle free
just wait
just you wait
til I break
til I’m thin as paper
Maybe you’d know
all this time
I held us together

Wait, just you wait
til I break
til I’m thin as paper
Maybe you’d know
all this time
I held us together
for the sake of the show
I did it all for show
for the sake of the show… whoa, no….
you would know.
