Gracie Abrams – Tough Love Lyrics

Gracie Abrams Tough Love Lyrics

I took a train to Boston and I wanted to cry
He’s gone, I’m 24 and it’s a Saturday night
I ran and took his jacket with the rip in the side
I hate when we fight, it sucks when we fight
But honestly, whatever, he’s just one of the boys
I’ll date for like a summer and I’ll leave when I’m bored
This train is full of strangers but I might like ’em more
I said I might like ’em more, yeah, no I like ’em more

And that’s just
Tough love but I mean it
Really mean it
I’m not charmed, so I’m leaving

I laughed the second he tried to call my bluff
I guess it’s always funny until it’s not
When I left him there to feel it
Couldn’t guess what I’d be leaving for
No chance I’ll waste my 20’s on random men
Not one of them is cooler than all my friends
And I hate to leave him bleeding
But I know now what I’m leaving for

I’m walking by the river and I stopped by the boats
At night it’s kinda tempting just to see if you’d float
The benches by the Charles gave me somewhere to go
I feel like I’m home
There’s a bar down the road
I’m wasted with the sister of a boy that I met
Through someone back in college, she’s a weird intellect
She liked to tell the truth and she was harsh but direct
Her boyfriends all left, she had that effect

But that’s just
Tough love
And you’re lucky to receive it
Right?
He’ll crumble to pieces

I laughed the second he tried to call my bluff
I guess it’s always funny until it’s not
When I left him there in pieces
Couldn’t guess what I’d be leaving for
No chance I’ll waste my 20’s on random men
Not one of them is smarter than all my friends
And I hate to leave him bleeding
But I know now what I’m leaving for

Oh, I know now what I’m leaving for
Oh, I know now what I’m leaving-
No I’m not gonna miss the way he’d kick me in my bed while sleeping
And I’m not gonna miss his shitty friends and nights of their binge drinking
And I’m not gonna miss his old inflated ego, shallow thinking
And I’m not gonna miss denying that I’ve got my own damn reasons

I laughed the second he tried to call my bluff
I guess it’s always funny until it’s not
When I left him there to feel it
Couldn’t guess what I’d be leaving for
No chance I’ll waste my 20’s on random men
Not one of them is tougher than all my friends
And I hate to leave him bleeding
But I know now what I’m leaving for
