Okay, so you don’t wanna be their fling

But then you work a lot

To take them under your wings.

A pretty girl can get a lot of boys,

All in the right condition:

With love in their eyes

And lust in the mind —

But it’s hard to get them off your back

When you wanna turn round and change track.


They think you’re so cool

In your faded jeans and sweater,

Your long hair hanging loose

Down to your hips;

With all your easy talk, your easy smiles,

You seem like a dream come true —

But then they never look behind your façade

Until it’s too late and you step back;

All your easiness gone like a blink

In your eyes.
