lyrics

unlike the rest of my generation
i’m not screaming, “someone take me!”
i’ll put love on the back-burner 
instead of waiting for a forced awakening

and if you ever feel lonely
just take a look at your profiles, sweetheart
pick someone else to love, to trust - it’s not what you want 
it’s just another one to forget when you grow apart

every day, i see the same thing happening
any method, you just keep on snapping
you’re living life through your rose-tinted lens
don’t you wanna be more than facebook friends?

the old days had the right idea
you had to earn someone’s affection
now just swipe right, be judged on what you look like
and act like you can take rejection

and if you ever feel lonely
just take a look at your profiles, darling
pick someone to lust over, blush over - i told you
it’s not enough to meet your prince charming

every day, i see the same thing happening
any method, you’ll just keep on snapping
you’re living life through your rose-tinted lens
don’t you wanna be more than facebook friends?

he feels claw marks in his back, and he learns after the fact
this was no passionate act - just a way to mark him and ward away the others
sore heart back on track but she keeps pulling him back
to take a profile picture stat - but he left his smile between the covers
he’s on his back and he learns after the fact
this was no passionate act - just a way to mark him and ward away the others
sore heart back on track but she keeps pulling him back
to take a profile picture stat - but he left his smile between the covers

every day, i see the same thing happening
any method, you just keep on snapping
you’re living life through your rose-tinted lens
don’t you wanna be more than, wanna be more than
every day i see the same thing happening
any method you just keep on snapping
you’re living life through your rose-tinted lens
don’t you wanna be more than facebook friends?
