"I'm trouble," she said.
Spread out on the floor of her father's house
Her promise was almost undone
Under her tongue, dissolving her responsibilities
To finally deny everyone with unflattering comparison

All grown up
And you don't care anymore
And you hate all the people that you used to adore
And you despise all the rumors and lies
Of the life you led before

Did I hear you right?
You're feeling hounded and pushed around
You want to just lay down and die
If all of this life has been such a big disappointment to you
Why don't you stop blaming some guy
And go give the next one a try

All grown up
And you don't care anymore
And you hate all the people that you used to adore
And you despise all the rumors and lies
Of the life you led before

But look at yourself
You'll see you're still so young
You haven't earned the weariness
That sounds so jaded on your tongue

"I'm weak," she says.
And blesses herself and gets into bed
Clutching the covers to her throat
"So punish me now and let me go back to the sham of my life
This night is the perfect antidote
For all of the poison that you wrote."


All grown up
And you don't care anymore
And you hate all the people that you used to adore
And you despise all the rumors and lies
Of the life you led before

But look at yourself
You'll see you're still so young
You haven't earned the weariness
That sounds so jaded on your tongue, ooh
