Recovering People Pleaser Lyrics – CARYS

(People-pleaser)
(People-pleaser)

Simon says, “Run”
Simon says, “Walk”
Simon says, “Spin and jump”
I’m tired of listening
I say, “Fly”
I say, “Fall down and cry”
I’m working my ass off to show you that I’m interesting

I let you express your heart
While I keep mine locked in the dark
There’s a bird in my cage that just wants to sing
So I’m turning the page even if it breaks both my wings

I was born as a leader
I’m not here to appease you
I’m a recovering people-pleaser
I still feel like I need you
When I’m falling to pieces
‘Cause I’m a recovering people-pleaser
I’m a recovering people-pleaser

Who am I to take up space?
Simon says I should shut up and keep my head down
Then who am I? What a waste
I’ve got a light, I’m gonna shine it into your face

I let you express your heart
While I keep mine locked in the dark
There’s a bird in my cage that just wants to sing
So I’m turning the page even if it breaks both my wings

I was born as a leader
I’m not here to appease you
I’m a recovering people-pleaser
I still feel like I need you
When I’m falling to pieces
‘Cause I’m a recovering people-pleaser
I’m a recovering people-pleaser

Why’d he look that way? Why won’t he stay?
Why’s the one you love always leave you?
So full of shame, am I to blame?
Just a recovering people-pleaser

I was born as a leader
I’m not here to appease you
I’m a recovering people-pleaser
I still feel like I need you
When I’m falling to pieces
‘Cause I’m a recovering people-pleaser
I’m a recovering people-pleaser
I’m a recovering people-pleaser

(People-pleaser)
I’m a recovering people-pleaser (People-pleaser)
