London!

Verse 1Matthew Healy + audience

Bite your face to spite your nose

SpokenMatthew Healy

What's that?

17 and a half years old
Worrying about my brother finding out
Where’s the fun in doing what you're told?

Before chorus

I said "No!"
'Oh give it a rest, I could persuade you
I'm not your typical, stoned 18 year old
Give me a night I'll make you'
"I know you're looking for salvation in the secular age, but girl I'm not your savior"
Wrestle to the ground
God help me now because

Chorus

They're just girls breaking hearts
Eyes bright, uptight, just girls
But she can't be what you need if she's 17
They're just girls
They're just girls

Verse 2

A pair of frozen hands to hold
Oh, she's so southern so she feels the cold
One moment I was tearing off your blouse
Now you're living in my house
What happened to just messing around?

Before chorus

I said "Yo, I think you better go, I can't take you
You just sit and get stoned with 30-year-olds and you think you've made it"
'Well, shouldn't you be fucking with somebody your age instead of making changes?'
Wrestle to the ground
God help me now because

Chorus

They're just girls breaking hearts
Eyes bright, uptight, just girls
But she can't be what you need if she's 17
They're just girls
They're just girls

SpokenMatthew Healy

Sing it!

BridgeAudience

I told her from the start
Destined to be hard
I told her from the start
I’ll break your heart
Destined to be hard
Break your heart

Before chorus

I said "Yo, I think you better go, I can't take you"
I know you're looking for salvation in the secular age, but girl I'm not your savior"
'Well, shouldn't you be fucking with somebody your age instead of making changes?'
Wrestle to the ground
God help me now because

They're just girls breaking hearts [girls
Eyes bright, uptight, just girls
But she can't be what you need if she's 17
They're just girls
They're just girls

SpokenMatthew Healy

You sing it!

Matthew Healy + audience

They're just girls breaking hearts
Eyes bright, uptight, just girls

They're just girls
Let's dance everybody! [They're just girls
One, two, three, prove it
