That chip upon your shoulder
Makes you seem much older
But you're just a kid in dangerous disguise

I know where you've been sleeping
And you really should be weeping
For every time you never caught the prize

I don't wanna kiss you and I don't really miss you
You say that you're not ready and you're right
Still I want you in my arms tonight

And you jump hidden dangers
You run up to perfect strangers
You know more than you'll ever realize

You wanna be my girlfriend
It's like standing in a whirlwind
Though this might truly cut us down to size

I don't wanna kiss you, I don't really miss you
You're either out too loose or in too tight
Still I want you in my arms tonight, tonight

You make me think of Anna Beth
With pretty feet and perfect breath
I got on the boat and she stayed on the shore

Now the world around me is sinking
But I'm no worse off than I'd be thinking
That it's you who's knocking at my door

Baby, I don't wanna kiss you much
I don't really miss your touch
Now that's just not right, here I want you in my arms
I can feel you in my arms tonight, tonight
