Banhart, Devendra - Bad Girl Lyrics




I've been a bad girl
I ain't playin' fair
I want you to be free
But I don't wanna share
No I don't wanna let you go
But it's about time I do
I can't blame you anymore
And I still love you

Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah...

I know it ain't easy
Being left on your own
Why did you leave me
Well I don't really know
And why wait another day
When a day won't change a thing
Please don't ever let me say
That again

Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah...

Mama I ain't waiting
I ain't waiting
But I'm still holding on

Mama I ain't waiting
No I ain't waiting
But I'm still holding on
Holding on baby

Mama I ain't waiting
No I ain't waiting
But I'm still holding on

Mama I ain't waiting
No I ain't waiting
But I'm still holding on

    2nd verse is his perspective
    Mama I ain't waiting but I'm still holding on is logic versus emotion. Heart versus brain.

    dennis vdk

    +Rebeca the album cover, is at the start of the video for 30 sec.

  59. AJ Cross

    Amazing song.

  60. Angel I.

    Heard this song on Pandora, and I love it. But why does HE say HE's been a bad Girl? I'm confused

    Matthew Solari

    +Angel I. because he's a future girl living outside society's shit

    Dylan

    +Angel I. Maybe he's singing in the context of a female, and speaking for her.

    Angel I.

    @Dylan N Seems legit 

    Eduardo Aguiar de Mello

    +Angel I. poetry

    Shanley Shoupe

    in an interview he was saying something along the lines of 'I learned how to sing as a girl' he had to put himself in the female mindset. I think he says he's been a bad girl bc of the lack of fucks he gives about gender boundaries, also possibly speaking from a female perspective

  61. daniel morales

    Soy el unico que nota sierta similitud en algunas notas de esta canción, con las notas de Don´t let me down

    Roberto González

    +daniel morales Flaco, Mirá el comentario anterior.

    nikkbl4ck

    yo también jajaja, como que si en la parte del estribillo quiero cantar dont let me down, pero no

    daniel morales

    jajajajajajaja algo así

  62. Omar Muñoz

    the grass was greener...

  63. Кирил Костадинов

    I know it ain't easy
    Being left on your own

  64. May Nandaura

    I love it! so much!

  65. Diogo Neves

    Remindes me of Beatles - Don't let me down

    Meriem

    +Diogo Neves i immediately had the same impression too! so i ran to see the comments!

  66. the Animist films

    i heard this on pandora while driving and couldnt check to see what the name was and was livid for three days cause i wanted nothing more than to hear this song again and i have finally found it and im getting chills from the bliss

  67. packman1

    Such I good tune & lyrics, I love it from the deepest part of my heart.

  68. Sama Alnassiry

    Devandra Banhart can take me from dancing to indie like a 70's princess on acid to crying over any thing.

    Perple Stuff

    [magic]

    Igzy

    i know right

    Moon Dancer

    Sama Alnassiry Yeah. Too bad most of his videos are in such bad taste. Man in the past several years everyone has turned into sexual weirdos.

  69. Mata A Tu Novio

    I've been a bad girl
    I ain't playin' fair
    I want you to be free

    But it's about time I do
    I can't blame you anymore
    And I still love you

    Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah...

    I know it ain't easy
    Being left on your own
    Why did you leave me
    Well I don't really know
    And why wait another day
    When a day won't change a thing
    Please don't ever let me say
    That again

    Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah...

    Mama I ain't waiting

    No I ain't waiting
    But I'm still holding on
    Holding on baby

    Mama I ain't waiting

    But I'm still holding on

    Mama I ain't waiting 
    No I ain't waiting
    But I'm still holding on

    Shay M

    Yep I see it

    Matta

    This guy is a rip off artist. You hear other songs in almost everyone of his songs.

    Julián Dro

    ​@Matta Don't you know that famous quote said by Picasso?

    Abril Acevedo

    High and Dry by Radiohead too

  82. Kenn C

    favorite song by Devendra
