Piñata


When I was young and brilliant,
I was so unhappy.
I was so unhappy,
Because I was so young and brilliant.
Too young with too much liberty,
And way too many choices,
(And) way too many voices,
To drain my precious liberty.

Chorus:
But now I’m old and broken.
I’ve been broken so wide open –
A piñata spilling unrelenting love. Love.
A piñata spilling unrelenting love.

When I was young and single,
I was so good looking.
I was so good looking,
Because I was so young and single.
Too young with too much ecstasy,
And way too many sources,
Way too many courses,
To drain my precious ecstasy.

Repeat chorus

When I got shot all full of holes,
I was so wide open.
I was so wide open,
When I got shot all full of holes.
Too young with too much eulogy,
And way too many mourners,
And way too many corners,
To drain my precious eulogy

Repeat chorus
