Never mind the headlights
He’s parking out front
Don’t be alarmed girl
Walking past your door he’s just a boy now
Who likes to hold his gun
No broken hearts just broken bones
He keeps his cigarettes in his front pocket
Quietly he says: “Oh, won’t you fix me up a drink?”
While you stand there making faces
You always hated those ripped jeans
“Fix it up yourself. Baby, we’re fading away
Don’t let my red lipstick fool you”

“We’ve become 2 strangers today
And you know, you know
I just can’t make the same mistakes again
Don’t call me “baby” it’s so disappointing”

“this city’s poisoned us, I feel we need change”
And now she’s crying oy maybe it’s just the rain
Taking mental notes on all the detail in this room
His eyes do look insane
But walking past your door he’s just a boy now
Walking past your door

“We’ve become 2 strangers today
And you know, you know
I just can’t make the same mistakes again
I’m not your “baby” you don’t deserve me now”

So take your words and write ‘em down
You were the king, now toss your crown
She’s had enough, she feels nothing
Really shouldn’t leave your gun on the kitchen sink
“Take these words and write them down
You’re no king you’re just a clown”
“How did things end up this way?”
“Are you turning away?”
Cuz even kings have to fall at some point in the story

“Baby don’t be snotty come to Jesse’s party”
