Emma Blackery Your Own Shoes

I didn’t like where I was living

So I went away and did some thinking

Started to get my things packed

And then I had my car jacked

It was now or never

Now things are better than ever

You can eat pizza when you want to

Can nap all day with no one nagging you

Of course we got them bills to pay

And I’m sure as hell I’ll find a way

But until then I will do whatever I choose

Just remember what your parents taught you

And forget all the old things you knew

You’re about to live life in your own shoes

It’s gonna be one of the best things you can do

Don’t get me wrong it can be stressful

Now you have to make your own phone calls

And when a salesman comes knocking at your door

You can’t hand them over to your mum no more

Just remember what your parents taught you

And forget all the old things you knew

You’re about to live life in your own shoes

It’s gonna be one of the best things you can do

And life can get hard

But it’s hard anywhere

So why not be sad

In a place you don’t care?

You can stay up all night

And sleep up until two

Just remember to clean behind your ears

(And then I just go on for a bit about nothing)

Just remember what your parents taught you

And forget all the old things you knew

You’re about to live life in your own shoes

It’s gonna be one of the best things you can do
