about

Drama Queens
This song has been kicking around for a while, but it wasn’t until Gina started singing it and we dropped the key to E major that it came into its own. Lyrically it’s pretty self-explanatory – a turbulent relationship that seems to feed off the conflict. Musically we were thinking about Elvis Costello and Big Star - both big influences on Blackbirds.

lyrics

Drama Queens J.Gronow

Verse 1
Speak softly, don’t wake no-one
There’s no-one here but even so
I hate the way we talk so loud
You’re angry, I’ve picked that up
I’m so astute and now you’re off
you reach the car before you stop, and say

Chorus
Why? Please tell me why?
Why do we have to be such drama queens all the time?
Babe, you and I, don’t you know I believe we enjoy the heat of the fight
And that’s alright if it’s alright

Verse 2
Some couples, enjoy their
time together but how can I?
When all we do is start these fights
Its hopeless, we know that much
We know a lot of stupid stuff
I know it’s tearing out my heart, so I say

Chorus
Why? Please tell me why?
Why do we have to be such drama queens all the time?
Babe you and I, don’t you know I believe we enjoy the heat of the fight.

Bridge
And that’s alright if it’s alright
Yeah that’s alright if it’s alright

Verse 3
Let’s stand up, just you and I
Let’s try to leave ourselves behind
And all this weight we carry round
Cos we’re dying, we’re fading out
With every slap, with every barb
It doesn’t have to be that hard, and I say

Repeat Chorus and Bridge
