Kick drums and Tantrums

What they say- That was an outstanding performance!
What I hear- Normally you’re mediocre at best.
No one tells the truth, not the whole truth.
They’ll change their tune soon.
What they say- I couldn’t have done it any better!
What I hear- And I’ve tried so I guess I should give you props.
Everybody chooses how to best lie to you.
Soon they’ll change their tune.
What they say- You’re amazing at this!
What I hear- Work harder at everything else, sweetie.
No one says what they really mean is what I think.
They’ll change their tune soon.
What they say- Really good work!
What I hear- I thought you were gonna fuck this all up.
Everybody knows compliments are fleeting.
Soon they’ll change their tune.
What they say- You absolutely deserve the recognition!
What I hear- I can’t take the credit in this case.
No one ever stays impressed.
They’ll change their tune, they always do…
What they say- I love you.
What I hear- I’m leaving soon…
Everybody settles but never for me I guess.
Its just the same tune that I’m used to…
