Dawn Richard Automatic

How’d I get stuck living like this

Picture fucking perfect stepford wife

Assembled to fit your design.

There used to be a heart in here

Tell me how could anything survive

When hearts can’t beat in steel, no

Like a tin-man, I played the part

I wage my heart I feel so artificial when I’m loving you

I can’t, I can’t

‘Cause I’m nothing kind of bitch that’s gonna let you go with you

That gonna let you do that

[Chorus:]

Sorry if you think, if you think I’m automatic

Fucking with the wrong toy no batteries included

Tryin to turn me on ’cause you think I’m operatic

Treat me like a droid ’cause you think I’m automatic

Enjoy ’cause you think I’m automatic

Play me like a toy cause you think I’m automatic

Auto automatic, ’cause you think I’m automatic

Auto automatic, ’cause you think I’m automatic yeah

You called me your prized possession

Showed me off like I’m your trophy case

Told me to do what you say, oh

I let you fuck up my vision

With the world in as a colder place

You had my heart, I swear it babe oh wow

Boy you don’t love it

Turn my heart into your worst nightmare

Shut me down, down with your program

Switch me off I wanna be human yeah human

Again I give anything to recognize my own skin

I can, I can anything to recognize my old thing

System overloaded ’cause I know that I can feel that

[Chorus x2]

Trade in this armor for a piece of reality oh

Cause under this metallic girl, there’s a human being

Won’t be a toy no more, boy fuck your technology

I’m done now, I’m shortin’ out

Cause I’m not the kind of chick that’s gonna let you go and do that

[Chorus]

I don’t give a thing about you

I’m a do em you gonna do you

I ain’t automatic

So let’s be true

So let’s be true

[Chorus]

Listen

I don’t give a fuck about you

I’ma do me, and you gon’ do you

I ain’t automatic, so let a bitch through

So let it be through

Dawn Richard Black Lipstick

I was looking for something

Or maybe someone

Hope a relation

Or revelation

She smelled of temptation

Made me impatient

I have to see her, hey

I have to see her

She wore black lipstick

Call her renegade

Leather jacket on

Collar high

Couldn’t see her face

She ice-skated on my heart

Couldn’t feel the blade

I think I’m color blind

Cause I’m bleeding black and grey

Oh baby

Cause I’m bleeding black and grey

She wore

I’m bleeding

She wore

My heart was running

Running, running

Away from love where

She caught me off guard from afar in the distance

Without saying a word from her lips

She had me intrigued

Cause I’m bleeding black and grey.

She wore black lipstick

Call her renegade

Leather jacket on

Collar high

Couldn’t see her face

She ice-skated on my heart

Couldn’t feel the blade

I think I’m color blind

Cause I’m bleeding black and grey

Oh baby

Cause I’m bleeding black and grey

She wore

I’m bleeding

She wore

Oh, I’m blee…

She wore black lipstick

Call her renegade

Leather jacket on

Collar high

Couldn’t see her face

She ice-skated on my heart

Couldnt feel the blade

I think I’m color blind

Cause I’m bleeding black and grey

Oh baby

Cause I’m bleeding black and grey

She wore

She wore

Dawn Richard Broken Promises

[Q:]

You promised me that you would love.

You promised me that you would stay.

You promised me that you would take my heart and never give away.

You promised me that you would never cheat.

You promised me that you would never change.

You promised me you’ll never leave.

Promises you never kept.

[x2:]

But every promise that’re broken (Ooh, I do)

Right before it could ever reach me (What am I gonna do)

You never were there to give me (Got to please you)

The lies you made me believe in.

[x2:]

These are, reasons why I left.

You never should’ve gave me broken promises.

Broken promises, broken promises, broken promises.

[Dawn:]

You promised me you’d see more of me.

Open up your eyes and see what we could be.

I promise it was just me.

A promise that you couldn’t keep.

You promised she was just a friend.

A promise I found in my bed.

A promise that made me weak.

Promises you never keep.

[Dawn:]

But every promise that’s been broken (Ooh, I do)

Right before it ever reaches me (What am I gonna do)

You never were there to give me (Got to please you)

The lies you made me believe in.

[Q:]

But every promise that’re broken (Ooh, I do)

Right before it could ever reach me (What am I gonna do)

You never were there to give me (Got to please you)

The lies you made me believe in.

[x2:]

These are, reasons why I left.

You never should’ve gave me broken promises.

Broken promises, broken promises, broken promises.

[Dawn:]

How could you do this to me after I gave you all of me.

(The promise I made to you, and you left me alone)

[Q:]

After I gave you my heart (Gave you my heart)

You weren’t there from the start.

[Dawn & Q:]

We’ll go our own ways and I’ll be okay.

(Oh na na na na na na)

(Oh na na na na na na)

(Oh na na na na na na)

[x2:]

These are, reasons why I left.

You never should’ve gave me broken promises.

Broken promises, broken promises, broken promises.

(You never should’ve gave me)

(Ooh)
