    Lyrics

    I didn't take no shortcuts
    I spent the money that I saved up
    Oh, my ol Momma's running out of luck
    Like my sister don't give a fuck

    I wanna steal your innocence
    To me my life it dont make sense
    Those strange manners, oh I love 'em so
    why wont you wear your new trench coat

    I shoulda worked much harder
    I shoulda just not bothered
    I never show up on weekdays
    That's something that I learned yesterday

    Drive you to work; you will be on time
    These little problems they're not yours and mine,
    Come on and 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 nothing I want, 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 beginning
    it all works some how in the end
    the things we did, the things you hide
    But for the record it's between you and i

    I didnt take no short cuts
    I spent the money that i saved up
    oh,momma running out of luck
    like my sister dont give a fuck
    I wanna steal your innocence
    To me my life, it just don't make any sense
    Oh, those strange manners I love 'em so
    Why won't you wear your new trenchcoat?
    I just want to misbehave
    I just want to be your slave
    You ain't never had nothing 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 beginning
    it all works some how in the end
    the things we did, the things you hide
    But for the record it's between you and i
