Thumbs Lyrics – Lucy Dacus


[Verse 1]
You hung up the phone
And I asked you what was wrong
Your dad has come to town
He’d like to meet
I said, “You don’t have to see him”
But for whatever reason, you can’t tell him no

[Verse 2]
So we meet him at a bar
You were holding my hand hard
He ordered rum and coke
I can’t drink either anymore
He hadn’t seen you since the fifth grade
Now you’re nineteen and you’re five-eight
He said, “Honey, you sure look great
Do you get the checks I send on your birthday?”

[Chorus]
I would kill him
If you let me
I would kill him
Quick and easy
Your nails are digging
Into my knee
I don’t know
How you keep smiling

[Verse 3]
I lovе your eyes
And he has thеm
Or you have his
‘Cause he was first
I imagine my thumbs on the irises
Pressing in until they burst

[Verse 4]
I clear my throat
And say we ought to get home
He offers us a ride
I reply, “No, that’s alright”
And when we leave
You feel him watching
So we walk a mile in the wrong direction

[Chorus]
I would kill him
If you let me
I would kill him
Quick and easy
Your nails are digging
Into my knee
I don’t know
How you keep smiling
I don’t know
How you keep smiling
I don’t know
How you keep smiling

[Outro]
I wanna take your face between my hands and say
“You two are connected by a pure coincidence
Bound to him by blood, but baby, it’s all relative
You’ve been in his fist ever since you were a kid
But you don’t owe him shit even if he said you did
You don’t owe him shit even if he said you did”
