I didn't take no shortcuts
I spent the money that I saved up
Aw mama runnin' out of luck
Well like my sister don't give a fuck

I want to steal your innocence
To me my life it don't make sense
Your strange manners, I love you so
Why won't 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, you'll be on time
Your little problems, they're not yours they're mine
Come on listen to what I say
I've got some secrets that'll make you stay

I just want to turn you down
I just want a turn you around
You ain't never had nothin' I wanted but
I want it all, I just can't figure out
Nothin'

And all together it went well
We made pretend we were best friends
Then she said "Oh you're 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 it's between you and I

I didn't take no shortcuts
I spent the money that I saved up
Aw mama runnin' out of luck
Well like my sister don't give a fuck

I want to steal your innocence
To me my life it just don't make any sense
Your strange manners I love them so
Why won't you wear your new trench coat

I just want to misbehave
I just want to be your slave
You ain't never had nothin' I wanted but
I want it all, I just can't figure out
Nothin'

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 beginnin'
It all works somehow in the end
The things we did the thing you hide
But for the record it's between you and I
