I try to be on best behavior
I try my damnedest to be good
The world is stronger than
The rules I understand
And now I wonder if I would

I never do the things I shouldn't
Perhaps it's time that I should start
It could seem a mistake
But something's got to break
Could be the law, could be my heart

You give me more than I can take
And if I bend then I will break
And I can see you still awake
And you're watching me
You're still watching me

I have a head that isn't certain
I have a heart that knows for sure
My legs are running scared
My lips are unprepared
My hand is knocking at your door
