Emily K. Mannix – MPDG


You pyonged “Emily K. Mannix – MPDG”

Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

i'm not your manic pixie dream girl

the other day a friend of mine

kept texting me: "you have to come to this party.

I need your positivity"

even though it was paid

as a compliment (i guess...)

it actually peeved me

i'm not your friend to be your entertainment

or to chase your blues away

i'm not your personal sunshine

i've been described as a manic pixie dream girl

i'm talkative, chatty, loquacious, kissed the Blarney Stone

i'm quick to smile and jest

it's true: i could probably carry a conversation on by myself

but i also need time to myself

to read in bed at 8pm (my inner 70 yr old)

to have only the sound of Debussy speaking

i'm not your jester to shine on command and run to the side when through

i can't always be "on" just for you

whether boyfriends or friends, this line from ESOTSM rings true:
"Too many guys think I'm a concept, or I complete them, or I'm gonna make them alive. But I'm just a fucked-up girl who's lookin' for my own peace of mind; don't assign me yours."
