I guess you could call it text book

I was looking for the father I wanted back

& I thought I found it in Brentwood

It seemed only appropriate you’d easily have my back

 

& Then there the was the issue of her

I didn’t even like myself or love the life I had

& There you were with shining stars

Standing blue with open arms

You touched the detriment most of the friends I knew already had

 

You’ve got a Thunderbird

My daddy had one too

Let’s rewrite history

I’ll do this dance with you

You know I’m not that girl

You know I’ll never be

Maybe just the way we’re different could set me free

 

There we were

Screaming Black Lives Matter

In a crowd by the Old Man River

&  I saw you saw who I am
God, I wish I was with my father

He could see us in all our splendor

 

I screamed for them

Oh 

I scream for them

Ahh

 

Could we do this dance again?

Do you think if I go blonde we could get our old love back?

I guess this is really the end

I never felt jealous before this year but I’m jealous now

 

People say we’re too much alike

But maybe, finally that'll make it right
In the end of all these sleepless nights

Other men I met felt right

Would smile at you and stick in a knife

In your back, finally I met you so I’m not wondering why

 

You’ve got a Thunderbird

My daddy had one too

Let’s rewrite history

I’ll do this dance with you

You know I’m not that girl

You know I’ll never be

Maybe just the way we’re different could set me free

 

There we were

Screaming Black Lives Matter

In a crowd by the Old Man River

&  I saw you saw who I am
God, I wish I was with my father

He could see us in all our splendor

 

I screamed for them

Oh

I scream for them

Ahh

 

Old man river keeps rolling

With or without him

Old man river keeps rolling

Without him, my old man

Old man river keeps rolling

Ohh

Here's my transcript

 

I didn't add the ending though

 

I guess you could call it textbook

I was looking for the father

I want it back

And I thought I found it in Brentwood

It seemed only appropriate

You’d easily have my back

 

And then there was the issue of her

I didn’t even like myself or love the life I had

And there you were, a shining stars

Standing blue with open arms

You touched the detriment most of the friends I knew already had

 

You got a Thunderbird

My daddy had one too

Let’s rewrite history

I’ll do this dance with you

You know I’m not that girl

You know I’ll never be

Baby just the way we’re different

Could set me free

 

The way screaming back
last summer

In the crowd

In an open river

and I saw that’s not who I am

God I wish I was with my father

He could see I said I’m lost

Wonder all the things I could’ve want for him


I screamed for them

Ohhh I screamed for them

Ohhh,

 

Could we do this dance again

Do you think if I go blonde we could get our own love back?
I guess this is really the end

I never felt jealous before this year

But i’m jealous now

People say we’re too much alike

But maybe finally that’ll make it right

At the end of all these sleepless nights

Mother met a —

Was my luxurious take one night

In your bag finally

I met you so I’m not wondering why

 

You got a Tunderbird

My daddy had one too

Let’s rewrite history

I’ll do this dance with you

You know I’m not that girl

You know I’ll never be

Baby just the way we’re different

Could set me free

 

The way screaming back
last summer

In the crowd

In an open river

and I saw that’s not who I am

God I wish I was with my father

He could see I said I’m lost

Wonder all the things I could’ve want for him

Might be my favourite off the three (shook, I thought it would be WW), but Text Book is giving me Wild One, Born To Die, Ride vibes and I'm living. Also, whoa with the tempo changes. 


"I'm wild, I'm free, no man can handle me."

I'm just gonna say it. This is the first of the three that I've listened to and I'm already so much more hyped about these songs than anything else from COCC!

tbh i don't think the BLM line is problematic, buuuut she's gonna get dragged nonetheless and that makes me sad


Yeah I don’t think it’s problematic either. From what I understood, she just wishes she could’ve screamed “BLM” with her father because it meant a lot to her


I'll do it for the right reasons

Withstanding all the time, changes and seasons

The melody reminds me so much of a song "... break your heart... Give my heart a break.." I don't remember the name but the chorus sounds so similar

Guys help! The chorus of text book sounds melodically so similar to one of her other songs and I cannot for the life of me think of what it is but I almost want to start singing it! Any clues?
