Goddess - Laufey 「Lyrics」

It always goes like this
Could've predicted it
I'm so naïve to think you loved me for me
Kissed as I ran off stage
You're too old to play this game
Guess you're still growing up at thirty, oh

[Chorus]
Were you surprised by me
When you took me home?
When the glamour wore off
Reduced to skin and bone
I can't even tell who you want to know


I'm a goddess on stage
Human when we're alone

[Verse 2]
You took a star to bed
Woke up with me instead
You must have felt so damn deceived
When you made up a version of
Me that you thought you loved
But I am not your Aphrodite, oh

[Chorus]
Were you surprised by me
When you took me home?


When the glamour wore off
Reduced to skin and bone
I can't even tell who you want to know
I'm a goddess on stage
Human when we're alone

[Outro]
You took me for a fool
You stole my youth
You wanted this so much
You watched me rise
Then killed my light
And now you know
I'm not your fucking goddess


Oh, oh
I'm no goddess when I'm alone
