Cooler Than Me
princess paparazzi Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

If I could write you a song
To make you fall in love
I would already have you up under my arm
I used up all of my tricks
I hope that you like this
But you probably won't
You think you're cooler than me
You got designer shades just
To hide your face
And you wear 'em around like
You're cooler than me
And you never say "Hey" or remember my name
And it's probably 'cause you think
You're cooler than me

You got your highbrow shoes on your feet
And you wear 'em around like it ain't shit
But you don't know the way that you look
When your steps make that much noise, shh
See, I got you all figured out
You need everyone's eyes just to feel seen
Behind your makeup nobody knows
Who you even are
Who do you think that you are?
If I could write you a song
To make you fall in love
I would already have you up under my arm
I used up all of my tricks
I hope that you like this
But, you probably won't
You think you're cooler than me
You got designer shades just
To hide your face
And you wear 'em around like
You're cooler than me
And you never say "Hey" or remember my name
And it's probably 'cause you think
You're cooler than me

You got your high brow, switch in your walk
And you don't even look when you pass by
But you don't know the way that you look
When your steps make that much noise, shh
See, I got you all figured out
You need everyone's eyes just to feel seen
Behind your makeup nobody knows
Who you even are
Who do you think that you are?

If I could write you a song
To make you fall in love
I would already have you up under my arm
I used up all of my tricks
I hope that you like this
But you probably won't
You think you're cooler than me
You got designer shades just
To hide your face
And you wear 'em around like
You're cooler than me
And you never say "Hey" or remember my name




And it's probably 'cause you think
You're cooler than me

Beneath the layers of cosmetics, no one truly comprehends

Who do you believe yourself to be?
