LyricsEdit

I didnt take no shortcuts

I spent the money that I saved up

Aw mama runnin' out of luck

Well like my sister dont give a fuck

I wanna steal your innocence

To me my life it dont make sense

Your strange manners, I love you so

Why wont you wear your new trench coat


I should've worked much harder

I should have just not bothered

I never show up on weekdays

Somethin that you learned yesterday

Drive you to work, youll be on time

Your little problems, theyre not yours they're mine

Come on listen to what I say

Ive got some secrets thatll make you stay

I just want to turn you down

I just want a turn you around

You aint never had nothin I wanted but

I want it all, I just cant figure out

Nothing.


And all together it went well

We made pretend we were best friends

Then she said oh youre a freak

They ordered me to make mistakes

Together again, like the beginnin

It all works somehow in the end

The things we did the thing you hide

But for the record its between you and I.


I didnt take no shortcuts

I spent the money that I saved up

Aw mama runnin out of luck

Well like my sister dont give a fuck

I wanna steal your innocence

To me my life it just dont make any sense

Your strange manners I love them so

Why wont you wear your new trench coat

I just want to misbehave

I just want to be your slave

You aint never had nothin I wanted but

I want it all, I just cant figure out

Nothing.


And all together it went well

We made pretend we were best friends

Then she said oh I can wait

They ordered me to make mistakes

Together again like the beginning

It all works somehow in the end

The things we did the thing you hide

But for the record its between you and I.
