Tough Guys

MUSIC & LYRICS BY CAROLINE JONES

I’m selfish if I please myself
I’m good if I please you
I’m a rebel if I don’t fit in the box
I’m a talent if I do

I’m ignorant to your hypocrite
Naïve to your experience
Well oops, but I don’t give sh*t
‘Cause I ain’t waitin’ on you to approve

‘Cause I got all the love that my heart can give
Tidal wave that you can’t hold back
Courage is all dreams need to live
Your fiction is my fact

Tough guys wantin’ this girl to play nice
I don’t mean to play rough, guys
I’m just trusting my gut, guys
I think I threaten these tough guys
‘Cause I’m in love with my own life
& I’ve heard enough lies
If it makes you cry
If it makes you cry,
Well that’s just tough, guys

I’m smart if I ask a question
That you know the answer to
I’m an airy fairy hippie if I ask
Why we can’t do something brand new

It’s comical to see the quizzical
Looks upon your face
As you blame me ‘cause I’m crazy
But it’s you who can’t keep pace with

All the love that my heart can give
Like a tidal wave that you can’t hold back
Courage is all dreams need to live
Your fiction is my fact

Tough guys wantin’ this girl to play nice
I don’t mean to play rough, guys
I’m just trusting my gut, guys
I think I threaten these tough guys
‘Cause I’m in love with my own life
& I’ve heard enough lies
If it makes you cry
If it makes you cry,
Well that’s just tough, guys.
Kick it

Listen

Does it make you cry,
Does it make you cry,
Does it make you cry?
Does it make you cry,
Does it make you cry,
Does it make you cry?
Does it make you cry,
Does it make you cry,
Does it make you cry?
Does it make you cry, baby, make you cry?

Tough guys wantin’ this girl to play nice
I don’t mean to play rough, guys
I’m just trusting my gut, guys
I think I threaten these tough guys
‘Cause I’m in love with my life
& I’ve heard enough lies
If it makes you cry
If it makes you cry,
Well sorry, but that’s just tough, guys
