Olivia Rodrigo Lyrics

brutal Lyrics
Jump to:
"I want it to be like, messy"

I'm so insecure, I think
That I'll die before I drink
And I'm so caught up in the news
Of who likes me, and who hates you
And I'm so tired that I might
Quit my job, start a new life
And they'd all be so disappointed
'Cause who am I, if not exploited

And I'm so sick of seventeen
Where's my f*cking teenage dream?
If someone tells me one more time
"Enjoy your youth", I'm gonna cry
And I don't stick up for myself
I'm anxious and nothing can help
And I wish I'd done this before
And I wish people liked me more

All I did was try my best
This the kinda thanks I get?
Unrelentlessly upset (ah-ah-ah)
They say these are the golden years
But I wish I could disappear
Ego crush is so severe
God, it's brutal out here
(Yeah)

I feel like no one wants me
And I hate the way I'm perceived
I only have two real friends
And lately, I'm a nervous wreck
'Cause I love people I don't like
And I hate every song I write
And I'm not cool, and I'm not smart
And I can't even parallel park

All I did was try my best
This the kinda thanks I get?
Unrelentlessly upset (ah-ah
-ah)
They say these are the golden years
But I wish I could disappear
Ego crush is so severe
God, it's brutal out here

(Yeah)

(She's having a really good time)

Got a broken ego, broken heart
And God, I don't even know where to start

brutal Info:

• "Brutal" is the first track from Olivia Rodrigo's debut album SOUR.

• Written when she was 17 years old, this grungy rock song finds Olivia Rodrigo expressing her feelings about the brutal world of adolescence.

• Rodrigo explained the album title to Apple Music: "I sort of wrote it about this like period of time where I felt like everything that I had that was really awesome and good in my life went really sour like I was super insecure and going through this awful heartbreak stuff like that. So, that's why it's called Sour. Also, it has my initials in it - 'OR' - which I think is a fun added perk."

• "Brutal" debuted at #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 during the chart week of May 31, 2021.
