lyrics

YOU GOT A SHINING SMILE, BAD BREATH BEHIND
FROM CRYSTAL GLASS YOU DRINK CHEAP WINE
YOU JUST WANT IT TO LOOK PERFECT FROM THE OUTSIDE YOU WANT A BARBIE BODY WITH A STEPFORD MIND A PULL STRING MOUTH THAT WON’T UNWIND
SO WHY ARE YOU HERE WASTING MY TIME?

I’M A FIRECRACKER, GOT MY OWN LIGHTER
SET ME OFF, THE PLACE IS ON FIRE
AND YOU KEEP TRYIN’ TO PUT ME OUT
WHOA WHOA

NO ONE FITS INTO YOUR “PERFECT” LITTLE WORLD
I WILL NEVER BE YOUR PERFECT LITTLE GIRL
YOU WISH THAT I COULD BE CONTENT BEING NO ONE
CUZ NO ONE IS GOOD ENUF FOR YOU

(I’M A FIRECRACKER, GOT MY OWN LIGHTER)

IT ALL LOOKS GOOD WHEN YOU’RE STANDING HERE
ON THE WRONG SIDE OF A TWO-WAY MIRROR
CUZ YOU DON’T HAVE TO LOOK YOURSELF IN THE EYE
BUT YOU BETTER WATCH OUT WHEN I GET SPARKED
CUZ YOU CAN’T KEEP ME IN THE DARK
AS EVERYTHING IS TURNING ALL AROUND

I’M A FIRECRACKER, GOT MY OWN LIGHTER
SET ME OFF, THE PLACE IS ON FIRE
AND YOU KEEP TRYIN’ TO PUT ME OUT
WHOA WHOA

NO ONE FITS INTO YOUR “PERFECT” LITTLE WORLD
I WILL NEVER BE YOUR PERFECT LITTLE GIRL
YOU WISH THAT I COULD BE CONTENT BEING NO ONE
CUZ NO ONE IS GOOD ENUF FOR YOU

(I’M A FIRECRACKER, GOT MY OWN LIGHTER)

IF YOU TRY TO FIGHT THE FLAME
YOU’RE ONLY GONNA BURN
JUST THE LONLINESS REMAINS
AND YOU’LL ALWAYS BE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE
FOR SOMEONE

(I’M A FIRECRACKER, GOT MY OWN LIGHTER)

NO ONE FITS INTO YOUR “PERFECT” LITTLE WORLD
I WILL NEVER BE YOUR PERFECT LITTLE GIRL
YOU WISH THAT I COULD BE CONTENT BEING NO ONE
BUT I’M A FIRECRACKER, SO WHATCHA GONNA DO?
WHATCHA GONNA DO? WHATCHA GONNA DO?
YOU WISH THAT I WAS NO ONE
CUZ NO ONE IS GOOD ENUF FOR YOU
