I don't know what you want but I give it anyhow
With bruises rising dark upon this gift I offer now
And offer long

Out here on the scene, a one time homemade teenage dream
How can I be denied?
I don't really wanna go out tonight, home fire's burning fever bright
Got no alibi

By virtue as it's own reward, by custom duty bound
The grape is sour upon the vine so heads up all around
I'm coming down

Out here on the scene, a one time homemade teenage dream
How can I be denied?
I don't really wanna go out tonight, I woke up dreaming but how time flies
Got no alibi, yeah where was I?
