Chain me free
Lose the key, right now

She was from my home town,
I'd never met her
Ditched her boyfriends,
'cause I was better
She showed me pictures in her car...
Pictures of the Beach Boys
and Kelly Slater
Bounced from the party
'cause the girls all hate her
She said she wants to see the stars

She's had some fast times
First times always last times
Out in the foxglove, I'm in...

Chain me free
or let if fall
We can be all, we can be all, I said
What's in your head?
Lose the key
or please don't call
We can be all, we can be all, I said
She kissed me dead.

She calls me during Loveline
and gets the machine
She wants to see me
but not to be seen
As if she's got some mystery
Missed her for a few weeks
before I called her
Still didn't get it,
so this is how I stalled her:
Even though you're seventeen,
I've got to tell you,
you're too old for me

She's had some fast times
First times always last times
Out in the foxglove, was that?...

Chain me free
or let if fall
We can be all, we can be all, I said
What's in your head?
Lose the key
or please don't call
We can be all, we can be all, I said
She kissed me dead.

You're all drugged out and delirious
Don't close your eyes - are you hearing this?
I'm about to say something
that I swore I'd never say
I gotta' get it out before I get away
I gotta' get away before I get it out
I gotta' get away before I get it out
I gotta' get away before I get it out, yeah

Chain me free
Lose the key

    General CommentMeeting someone you've never met before, going out with them, gaining a commitment with that person, and wanting out of it. They become sort of obsessed with you and don't want to lose you.

    Have absolutely no idea how you can have no clue on what this is about, it's as apparent as Michael Jacksons pedophilia.

    General Commenti partialy agree with lalvarien i think its a relationship but i think the girl is more of a groupie maybe? which would be why he didnt know her.
