F**K Was I by Jenny Owen Youngs

I found ‘Fuck was I’ by Jenny Owen Youngs through a playlist app on spotify. For those of you who are learning

The Take Off All Your Clothes EP

guitar or piano, this song is very easy to play and is also a beautiful anthem for the broken hearted. ‘Fuck Was I’ is from the EP ‘Take Off All Your Clothes EP’ and can be bought HERE. I recommend the original version as opposed to the ‘clean’ version, but I have included both.

Original Version

‘Clean’ Version

Love grows in me like a tumor
Parasite bent on devouring its host
I’m developing my sense of humor
Till I can laugh at my heart between your teeth
Till I can laugh at my face beneath your feet

Skillet on the stove
It’s such a temptation
Maybe I’ll be the lucky one that doesn’t get burnt
What the fuck was I thinking?

Love plows through me like a dozer
I’ve got more give than a bale of hay
And there’s always a big mess left over
With the “What did you do?”
And the “What did you say?”
“What did you do?” and the “What did you say?”

Skillet on the stove
It’s such a temptation
Maybe I’ll be the special one that doesn’t get burnt
What the fuck was I thinking?

What the fuck was I thinking?
What the fuck was I thinking?
What the fuck was I thinking?

Love tears me up like a demon
Opens the wounds, then fills them with lead
And I’m having some trouble just breathing
If we weren’t such good friends I think that I’d hate you
If we weren’t such good friends I’d wish you were dead

Skillet on the stove
It’s such a temptation
Maybe I’ll be the lucky one that doesn’t get burnt
What the fuck was I thinking?

What the fuck was I thinking?
What the fuck was I thinking?

Love is so embarrassing
I’m this awkward and uncomfortable thing
I’m running out of places to hide it
I’m running out of places to hide it
What the fuck was I thinking?

(You know that I’ve got what you want)
What the fuck was I thinking?
(You know that I’ve got what you want)
What the fuck was I thinking?
(You know that I’ve got what you want)
What the fuck was I thinking?
(You know that I’ve got what you want)
