Pretty Little Girl

Nineteen, your eyes glow into my beating heart.
Oh it seems like it is fun as my hand is moving up your arm.
And you never really know where it goes up until it starts,
I've got my eye on you
Whatcha gonna do?

Day dream, near a stream where the winter bites.
Oh I listen to the song on repeat from the other night,
and I can't picture you but I sure got the feeling right
What a crazy world.
Pretty little girl.

And we wake from the night in a bed with a bruise
And then laughing out loud with the craziest news
When you reach for my hand I was scared in your room
We fell on the floor and we started to move
And your hands were like birds as they flew from the coop
Up my back they would climb just as I came unglued

She said,
If you break my heart then I'll change your mind
And I will do it again.
If you play the part then I will play mine
And I will do it again.
If we miss the mark, if we hold on tight
We'll be there to try it again.

Nineteen as we roll across the bedroom floor
Your eyes, they came alight as you're dreaming of our future home.
And the kids are growing up as you and I, we are growing old
What a crazy world.
Pretty little girl.

In the rain with the drink from the back of the bar.
I would raise up my voice, you would raise it up more.
We’d forget that our lives being apart, it is hard.
I thought we were close but it still feels far.
And we learn to get by if we learn to have scars.
We learn to forgive and accept who we are.

She said,
If you break my heart then I'll change your mind
And I will do it again
If you play the part then I will play mine
And I will do it again
If we miss the mark, if we hold on tight
We'll be there to do it again.
Wait a minute, hold up a second.
Don’t leave me here with this feeling, like I’m the one for regretting.
Like I never did cope for us both, like a never did pull out that weapon
And stick that knife in my back.
Was I supposed to accept it when your words are like…
More than just sticks and stones, kind of like a bullet.
I won’t take these lies to my bones, and I can’t just swallow it.
My pride is more than all that I own, so I gotta give it away.
And some of the times I’m all of the way wrong,
but can’t you see past me and see my fucked up home.
That made me the meanest,
the devil is just singing along to song that I write too alone at night.
And I hang up the phone, and bite my tongue.
Because I know that me and you is just only right but one.
(One, one, one).

It’s a cry from the past, we have been through a lot.
Every year has been great, and a few have been tough.
And the kids, they will reach for the stars that will burn.
I shouldn’t relax as we cheer in the night.
All the roads to the light, from the crib to the grave,
We started alone, in the end we’re ok.

She said,
If you break my heart then I'll change your mind
And I will do it again
If you play the part then I will play mine
And I will do it again
If we miss the mark, if we hold on tight
We'll be there to try it again.
