We have been sleeping with the lights on
Just about every night
Because we are afraid what the dark might bring
I know I know it's just a childish fear
That grows and grows wild in the middle of me
I'm gonna get a new tattoo
Black and stretching around my arm
Like a life that is visable and real
I know I know it's stupid and immature
I just want to give shape to the face
That twists inside
Both you and me
Breathing fire - doesn't look good on a resume
Neither does anything else we do
We got to get ready for the real world
Yeah yeah we got to grow up
You know I like to die for awhile
Everyday in the afternoon
I like to let the arms of a bar
Wrap around me tight
I'm just going to sprawl in the front booth
Big drink above my head
Cross eyes and smiling as
I watch the world
Go twisting by
I don't want to die with you,
Or live in the same dark room
I don't want to see your bloodshot eyes
No more, no more
I just want to take this girl-
All curls and big brown eyes
Man I can't take the pain
Of wanting her, needing her
I know the secret of your soul
And I just don't want to know-
Yeah, man we got to grow up
