The Heroine
Unwoman Lyrics


The city is wartorn
And nearly impassable
I act the lovelorn
Dramatically laughable
You said you'd come see me
Here underground
Now it's closing night
And you can't be found
I go through the motions again and again
But you are not here to see them
I go through the emotions again and again
And this time I actually feel them
I play the heroine
I play to their sympathies
I say the sweetest things
To command their empathy
I asked just one thing of you, to be here
Did I not let it slip that I was sincere?
That was my best poker face, trying not to care
I watch and I wait while you never appear
The city is wartorn
And nearly impassable
I act the lovelorn
I used to be laughable
And though I've been spoiled by petty privilege
I am no child throwing a fit
I could write the book of disappointment
And you'd be the final chapter of it
So you're a coward
Or could never love me
Or you have fallen
To the enemy
I asked just one thing of you, to be here
Did I not let it slip that I was sincere?
That was my best poker face, trying not to care
I watch and I wait while you never appear
All these people came all this way
Faces stained with loss but smiling as they're crying
I would rather see you laugh at my tragedy
Than choke on these tears while I'm curtsying
So you're a coward
Or could never love me
Or you have fallen
To the enemy
The city is wartorn
And nearly impassable
I act the lovelorn
I used to be laughable

The city is wartorn
And nearly impassable
I act the lovelorn
Dramatically laughable

You said you'd come see me
Here underground
Now it's closing night
And you can't be found

I go through the motions again and again
But you are not here to see them
I go through the emotions again and again
And this time I actually feel them

I play the heroine
I play to their sympathies
I say the sweetest things
To command their empathy

I asked just one thing of you, to be here
Did I not let it slip that I was sincere?
That was my best poker face, trying not to care
I watch and I wait while you never appear

The city is wartorn
And nearly impassable
I act the lovelorn
I used to be laughable

And though I've been spoiled by pretty privilege
I am no child throwing a fit
I could write the book of disappointment
And you'd be the final chapter of it

So you're a coward
Or could never love me
Or you have fallen
To the enemy

I asked just one thing of you, to be here
Did I not let it slip that I was sincere?
That was my best poker face, trying not to care
I watch and I wait while you never appear

All these people came all this way
Faces stained with loss but smiling as they're crying
I would rather see you laugh at my tragedy
Than choke on these tears while I'm curtsying

So you're a coward
Or could never love me
Or you have fallen
To the enemy
The city is wartorn
And nearly impassable
I act the lovelorn
I used to be laughable...

Saddest fuckin ep. Nothing tops it. This song makes it sadder
