lyrics

met you in a dirty, crowded room
before i knew a good lie from truth
thought, well you're good at secrets and i bet i am too

you said 'i can't kiss you dear, i might like it'
as if that were something to fear, and i
knew that it was wrong but i knew it was true

now i'm tangled in your mane
that's what you get for messing with a sweet young thing
shame on me, shame on you

ooh you're causing trouble again
you're kicking up dust where you shouldn’t have been
but don't you, don't you run screaming
your wheeling and dealing got you here, you won't
get much sympathy my dear
with your perennial excuse
blame it all on my youth

you draw the straw across your glass
check yourself in the mirror before you ask
to be sure my silence will last

i've heard that innocence is bliss
it teetered, precarious in your fist
sucked out the venom, there was morphine in your lips

how many times must i come to the same end
how many times a martyr in my own bed
how much getting older is left to do, the same
never-learning me, how many selfish yous
you always look so cool

ooh i'm causing trouble again i'm
kicking up dust where i shouldn’t have been
there's no one left to run to screaming
your wheeling and dealing got you here, you won't
get much sympathy my dear
with your perennial excuse
blame it all on my youth
