Somebody Else's Child - The Vaccines

I'm alright,
Why'd you ask?
I'm uptight, I guess.
Let it pass.
I've never had much in common with you.

You brought me up,
Gentle and mild.
But I'm somebody else's,
Somebody else's child.

Full head of hair,
Bright blue eyes.
I get my nose, I'm told,
From my Mother's side.
She took a lover that she barely knew.

I let you down,
Wayward and wild.
But I'm somebody else's,
Somebody else's child.
