LyricsEdit

Mmmm... Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh ooh

Yeah I feel I'm watered down
Whenever he's around
I put on the crown of clowns
And melt slowly to the ground
Yeah I feel it coming on
When I've been static for too long
And an explosion comes in time
Before I go and cross the line

They say "You used to be so kind
I never knew you had such a dirty mind!"
Well, I went to the doctors believing
The devil had control over me (Ha ha ha!) and
I was finding it hard to breathe and
Finding it hard to fight the feeling

When my heart just burst like a glass balloon
I let it fly too high and it shattered too soon
I was the wrong damn girl in the wrong damn room
I broke my glass balloon
I let go of my glass balloon

Oh oh oh oh oh!
They call him Hermit the Frog
He's looking for a dog
Did you find your bitch in me?
Oh you're abdominable socially
You're just a little bit too much like me

She says she used to be so kind
Well baby, I give you your dirty mind
Well I, I wanna tell you a secret
You can take your double standard love and keep it
I can't help the devil likes to
Make my heart a double bed
And I can't help he sometimes likes to
Come and rest his little head

When my heart just burst like a glass balloon
I let it fly too high and it shattered too soon
I was the wrong damn girl in the wrong damn room
I broke my glass balloon
I let go of my glass balloon

Oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
Oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
Dam-dada-dam dam-dam-dam-dam
Dam-dada-dam dam-dam-dam-dam
Dam-dadadadada-dam dam-dam-dam-dam
Dam-dada-dam da-da-da-dam

Oh my heart just burst like a glass balloon
We let them fly too high and they shattered too soon
Oh we're the wrong damn people in the wrong damn rooms
We broke our glass balloons
We let go of our glass balloon
We broke our glass balloon
Let go of my glass balloon

Mmmm... Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh mmm

Yeah I feel I'm watered down
Whenever he's around
I put on the crown of clowns
And melt slowly to the ground
Yeah I feel it coming on
When I've been static for too long
And an explosion comes in time
Before I go and cross the line
Oh yeah I go and cross the li-i-ine

Think before you blurt (Ha ha ha!)
Out the words you say to hurt
'Cause next week you'll be your
Oh, oh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
Oh, ooh ooh ooh

They say "You used to be so kind
I never knew you had such a dirty mind!"
Well, I went to the doctors believing
The devil had control over me and
I was finding it hard to breathe and
Finding it hard to fight the feeling

That my heart just burst like a glass balloon
I let it fly too high and it shattered too soon
I was the wrong damn girl in the wrong damn room
I broke my glass balloon
I let go of my glass balloon

Oh oh oh oh oh!
They call him Hermit the Frog
He's looking for a dog
Did you find your bitch in me?
Oh you're abdominable socially
You're just a little bit too much like me

Think before you blurt
Out the words you say to hurt
'Cause last week I was so
Oh, oh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
But now little bit you-u-u-u

Said she used to be so kind
Well baby, I give you your dirty mind
Well I, I wanna tell you a secret
You can take your double standard love and keep it
I can't help the devil likes to
Make my heart a double bed
And I can't help he sometimes likes to
Come and rest his little head

When my heart just burst like a glass balloon
We let them fly too high and they shattered too soon
Oh we're the wrong damn people in the wrong damn room
We broke our glass balloons
Ooh, let go of that glass balloons
We broke our glass balloons
Let go of my glass balloon
