"January" as written by and David Paton....
Yeah, I'm really excited about seeing you again
The other night was really great
You know, it was kinda scary
I mean, I've never really done anything like that before
But I trust you

You say although your love for me is strong
That a lover under seventeen is wrong

Another night goes by
And I awake enveloped in your arms, yeah, yeah
You won't make up your mind
Because my helplessness turns you on, yeah, yeah
(Turns you on)

If you leave now, baby don't come back
If you leave baby don't come back
If you leave now, baby don't come back
If you leave baby don't come back

January's just around the corner
I know that you'll be back by then
I'm counting down the days of my calendar
'Til loving me won't be a "sin"

I thought that after all we've seen and done
That your "battle with morality" was won

You've already crossed the line (crossed the line)
You might as well just wait it out
I haven't got the time (haven't got the time)
To be let in and then be shut out, oh no, no

So if you leave now, baby don't come back
If you leave, baby don't come back
If you leave now, baby don't come back
If you leave, baby don't come back

January's just around the corner
I know that you'll be back by then
I'm counting down the days of my calendar
'Til loving me won't be a "sin"

I don't want you to leave, but I need you to know
That I can only take so much of all your come and go
So stick around and they'll be no more reason for concern
Because your baby will be legal when the season turns

'Cause January's just around the corner
I know that you'll be back by then
I'm counting down the days of my calendar
'Til loving me won't be a "sin"

January's just around the corner
I know that you'll be back by then
I'm counting down the days of my calendar
'Til loving me won't be a "sin"

January, January
January, January
January, January

    General CommentPretty obvious I think ;) I love this song! Her boyfriend won't sleep with her, because she's sixteen and underage. And because I think Bonnie McKee had a boyfriend when she was something like fourteen fifteen, who was thirty or something- he's already crossed the line by being in a relationship with her in the first place and she doesn't get why he won't just go all the way.

    Lyric CorrectionAnother night goes by,
    and I awake enveloped in your arms.
    you won't make up your mind,
    because my helplessness turns you on.
