Maisie Peters - First Place Lyrics




I can see you standing all alone
At a party you don’t know no one
And it smells of beer and everybody here is from the city
You never liked them, said "their boots were far too big"
When you were with me, said my darling
"Promise here outside the bathroom
You will never become one of them"
Obnoxious, smoking high-end cigarettes
Name dropping Shakespeare off the heads
Your words washed over me, mouthwash mixed with arrogance
A little boy who held a drink, and thought that made him qualified to tell me
I embarrass him

Now the room is blasting house music
I feel like I might lose it
Everybody here is killing time
Pour more in my cup, prove it
I’m just as much grown up as you
I’ll dance til I forget the reasons why
We even turned up in the first place
Why I am with you in the first place

I bet somebody turns the speakers up
Blasting some old Green Day song
And you will say, that "they were way better a couple years ago"
And heads will nod as if your word is law
The teenage music connoisseur
Self assured, I bet, from all your years of private school
Fresh faced, political

Now the room is blasting house music
I feel like I might lose it
Everybody here is killing time
Pretending to be rich and famous
Really we’re all lost and aimless
Searching for the best that we can find
And then you’ll try and pull me down a peg
And I will wonder why I’m here again

Promising we won't be like our parents
Honestly I’m past the point of caring
Why all my views are fully formed or rounded
When it comes down to it
You’re just as small town little fish as me
Don’t you see your crown is made of books
That you brag about, when really
Have you even looked past the Wikipedia page
Is this your grown up phase?

Now the room is blasting house music
I feel like I might lose it
Everybody here is killing time
Pour more in my cup, prove it
I’m just as much grown up as you
I’ll dance til I forget the reasons why
We even turned up in the first place
Why I am with you in the first place

    The guitar chords and their matching lines for the chorus/my favorite part of the song, plus the mini instrumental breaks:

    Now the room is blasting house music Em
    I feel like I might lose it C
    Everybody here is killing time G
    _________________________ D
    Pretending to be rich and famous Em
    Really we’re all lost and aimless C
    Searching for the best that we can find G
    And then you’ll try and knock D
    me down a peg... and I will wonder why Cadd9
    I’m here again... ___________________ Cm

    Obnoxious smoking high end cigarettes
    Name dropping shakespeare off the heads."

    I really got to get this in my head. I will never become one of them, and that's good! honestly I don't even want to be. I want to be kind and understanding and loving. I don't want to be cool.
