Leak History

  • February 17th, 2021 - The full song is leaked in high quality.[1][2]

Theme

The song's perspective is most likely Cry Baby's "inner-voice". The song takes place after a recent break-up Cry Baby has gone through. Her inner-voice is telling her to not be so torn-up over the event by rehearsing the common phrase "Things could be worse."

Lyrics

[Intro]
Don't be sad, it's really not that bad for you
It's only just a little papercut or two
Don't be sad, you will be laughing someday soon
It's only just a little papercut or two
It's only just a little papercut (Cut, cut, cut, cut, cut)

[Verse 1]
You could get hit by a car or a train
Or get electrocuted in the rain
You could find a monster in your closet by your sneakers
You could find out that the monster's actually your teacher
You could have a dad with a friend named Jack
And when Jack's around, Mommy gets slapped
And if you tell Mommy that she deserves better
You'll have to cover up your bruises with a sweater

[Pre-Chorus]
I know your heart is broken
Feels like your world's been stolen
I promise that it could be worse
(It could be worse)
I know you miss those kisses
There are so many fishes
I promise that it could be worse
(It could be worse)

[Chorus]
Don't be sad, it's really not that bad for you
It's only just a little papercut or two
Don't be sad, you will be laughing someday soon
It's only just a little papercut or two
It's only just a little papercut (Cut, cut, cut, cut, cut)

[Verse 2]
Could've been the baby in the carriage
With beautiful blue-eyed parents
If Mommy said she never told a lie
Why the fuck do you've big brown eyes?
You could break a hip, you could lose your teeth
You could swallow a spider in your sleep
You could find a razor in your peanut butter sandwich
If you get cut, you could always get a bandage

[Pre-Chorus]
I know your heart is broken
Feels like your world's been stolen
I promise that it could be worse
(It could be worse)
I know you miss those kisses
There are so many fishes
I promise that it could be worse
(It could be worse)

[Chorus]
Don't be sad, it's really not that bad for you
It's only just a little papercut or two
Don't be sad, you will be laughing someday soon
It's only just a little papercut or two

[Breakdown]
(It's only just a little papercut)
(It's only just a little papercut or two)

[Chorus]
Don't be sad, it's really not that bad for you
It's only just a little papercut or two
Don't be sad, you will be laughing someday soon
It's only just a little papercut or two
It's only just a little papercut
