Lucy Dacus – Brando Lyrics

You told me to skip school to go with you to the movies
You knew you were uncool but you thought you could fool me
They play oldies in the afternoon for the elderly and me and you
Fred and Ginger, black and white, I watch you watch It’s a Wonderful Life

You called me cerebral, I didn’t know what you meant
But now I do, would it have killed you to call me pretty instead?
I’m in a second story window and you’re yelling at me, “Stella!”
And I’m laughing ’cause you think you’re Brando but you’ll never come close

All I need for you to admit is that you never knew me like you thought you did
You never knew me like you thought you did, like you thought you did

You say, “Here’s lookin’ at you, kid,” thinking I wouldn’t understand the reference
You admit, you think we’re fated, I’ll be lucky if I’m your third wife
That’s only something you would say in the car
We’ve been breathing the same air for too long
If the snow wasn’t coming down so hard
I would open the door and walk home, it’s only a couple miles
What could go wrong if I hitch a ride with a guy in a pickup
Who doesn’t know left from right from wrong?

All I need for you to admit is that you never knew me like you thought you did
You never knew me like you thought you did, like you thought you did

All I need for you to admit is that you never knew me like you thought you did
You never knew me like you thought you did, like you thought you did
