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 wanna steal your innocence
To me my life, it don't make any sense
These strange manners, I loved 'em so
Why won't you wear your new trench coat?

I should have worked much harder
I should have just not bothered

I never show up on weekdays
And somethin' that you learned yesterday

Drive you to work and 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 to turn you around
Oh 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 may 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 wanna 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
Oh 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 may 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
