Oh, I just don't know where to begin
Though he says he'll wait forever
It's now or never but she keeps him hanging on
The silly champion she says she can't go home
Without a chaperon

Accidents will happen we only hit and run
You used to be a victim now you're not the only one
Accidents will happen we only hit and run
I don't want to hear it 'cause I know what I've done

There's so many fish in the sea
That only rise up in the sweat and smoke like mercury
But they keep you hanging on they say you're so young
Your mind is made up but your mouth is well undone

Accidents will happen we only hit and run
You used to be a victim now you're not the only one
Accidents will happen we only hit and run
I don't want to hear it 'cause I know what I've done

And it's the damage that we do
And never know
It's the words that we don't say
That scare me so

There's so many people to see
So many people you can check up on and add to your collection
But they keep you hanging on until you're well hung
Your mouth is made up but your mind is well undone

Accidents will happen we only hit and run
You used to be a victim now you're not the only one
Accidents will happen we only hit and run
I don't want to hear it 'cause I know what I've done

I know, I know
I know, I know
