Alanis Morissette Lyrics

1974 Lyrics
I was born in 1974
on a calm meticulous street
someplace in the sun
oh the air was sweet
and enough lights sprang sparks
through the window of the room
not as raw to a ridiculous tune
slightly out of key in the mother hour

So leave me alone
So leave me alone
So leave me alone
I'm busy breaking bones

I was born in 1974
in a breached feet-first way
my twin opened the door
my very first dose of chivalry
I was dawned princess potential potent
with gold star and matching impression
big between two doors
small and loved and proud and unthreatened

So leave me alone
So leave me alone
So leave me alone
I'm busy breaking bones

I bet you were strong
when you should have been weak
like a dam that wanted to break
I wish I were the stones
your river learned to roam
in whispering gaze

You were told in a kind North Carolinian way
to slow down, back up, or be hated
thank god you did not
and thank god you did
an angel either way

So leave us alone
So leave us alone
So leave us alone
We're busy being grown
