Lyrics

Boy, it's late, walk me home
Put your hand in mine
At the gates, stop and say
"Be my Valentine"

You are by far
The brightest star I've ever seen
And I never dreamed I'd be so happy
That I could fly

You used to say that I was beautiful
Like Cleopatra
But you the king too, so I would say
"Back at'cha"

I flip my hair and make you stare
And put my make-up on
And make up stories 'bout my life
And put on Very Cherry Balm

And even then I knew that we were
Something serious
That you would dominate my thoughts of
Radio to Sirius

I'd see you in the hall like
"Hello, hello"
Up against the wall like
"Let's go, let's go"

Let me take you out of this town
Let me do it right now, baby
Dancing till dawn, staying forever young
Let's get out of this place
'Cause you're starting to waste
Within this teenage wasteland

You will never see my face
If you don't get me out of this place
Now, baby, I'm not crazy
I'm leaving, are you coming with me?

If you're lonely, baby, hold me
You're my only one
Watching television, kissin'
Till we see the sun

So far, we are
Safe in the dark
And I never dreamed that I'd be the queen
And I'd be so happy that I could die

You used to call yourself "the Don"
And me "Queen Diana"
You always make me blush, I say
"Shut up, boy, you bananas"

You pull my hair and push me down
And chase me, make me run
You play me Biggie Smalls and then
My first Nirvana song

So even then when no one's friends
Were really serious
I knew you loved me by the way
You looked in second period

I'd see you in the hall like
"Hello, hello"
Up against the wall like
"Let's go, let's go"

Let me take you out of this town
Let me do it right now, baby
Dancing till dawn, staying forever young
Let's get out of this place
'Cause you're starting to waste
Within this teenage wasteland

You will never see my face
If you don't get me out of this place
Now, baby, I'm not crazy
I'm leaving, are you coming with me?

I know that they say that all I want
Is to have fun and get away for rainy days

I know that they think I've come undone
But I'm in love, I wanna run, run, run away

I'm leaving, are you coming with me?

Let me take you out of this town
Let me do it right now, baby
Dancing till dawn, staying forever young
Let's get out of this place
'Cause you're starting to waste
Within this teenage wasteland

You will never see my face
If you don't get me out of this place
Now, baby, I'm not crazy
I'm leaving, are you coming with me?
