    Ever since I was a kid at school
    I messed around with all the rules
    Apologized then realized
    I'm not different after all

    Me and the boys thought we had it sussed
    Valentinos all of us
    My dad said we looked ridiculous
    But boy we broke some hearts

    In and out of jobs, running free
    Waging war with society
    Dumb blank faces stare back at me
    But nothing ever changed

    Promises made in the heat of the night
    Creeping home before it got too light
    I wasted all that precious time
    And blamed it on the wine

    I was only joking my dear
    Looking for a way to hide my fear
    What kind of fool was I
    I could never win

    Never found a compromise
    Collected lovers like butterflies
    Illusions of that grand first prize
    Are slowly wearing thin

    Susy baby you were good to me
    Giving love unselfishly
    But you took it all too seriously
    I guess it had to end

    I was only joking my dear
    Looking for a way to hide my fear
    What kind of fool was I
    I could never win
    Yeah baby

    Now you ask me if I'm sincere
    That's the question that I always fear
    Verse seven is never clear
    But I'll tell you what you want to hear

    I try to give you all you want
    But giving love is not my strongest point
    If that's the case it's pointless going on
    I'd rather be alone

    'Cause what I'm doing must be wrong
    Pouring my heart out in a song
    Owning up for prosperity
    For the whole damn world to see

    Quietly now while I turn a page
    Act one is over without costume change
    The principal would like to leave the stage
    The crowd don't understand
