- LyricsNo matter what they tell us
No matter what they do
No matter what they teach us
What we believe is true
No matter what they call us
Is all that you can't say
Years gone by and still
Words don't come easily
Like sorry like sorry
- LyricsGirl when you hold me, how you control me
You bend and you fold me, anyway you please
It must be easy for you, the loving things that you do
But just a pastime for you, I could never be
And I never know, girl
- LyricsIt's not time to make a change
Just relax, take it easy
You're still young, that's your fault
There's so much you have to know
Find a girl, settle down
- LyricsTell me what you want from me
So I can try to make you see
That I'm in no position for giving
'Cause all I see you do is lie
And I can't help but close my eyes
