There's some things I forget
And if it's wrong, I keep it in check
'Cause what could I do
If we go out tonight
With that blood on your shirt?
Would it taste like a brand new shirt?
'Cause I don't know

Can you teach me how to fight?
Show me what it's like to give that pain
Show me how to fight, throw him down

There were times in the past
If I had the move, I couldn't make it last
Girl, it's wasted in the night
And is it really so hard?
Tell your body to forget the words
Pushing you too hard
'Cause I don't know

Can you teach me how to fight?
Show me what it's like to give that pain
Show me how to fight, throw him down

    General Commentagreed. this is my favorite on last exit.
    the production is perfect...
    im not sure it's "brand new shirt" though.

    General CommentWow, this is pretty off, and it looks like every other lyrics site Google is finding has the same thing. Here's my best attempt at correct lyrics. I'm pretty sure at least the first verse and refrain are correct, not entirely sure about "make it last" in the second verse.

    There's some things I forget,
    and if it's wrong, I'll keep it in check
    'Cause what could I do,
    and if I go out tonight,
    would there be blood on your shirt?
    And would it taste like bitter shit?
    'Cause I don't know...

    Can you teach me how to fight?
    Show me what it's like, to give back pain
    Show me how you throw, throw them down

    There are times in the past,
    if I had the nerve I couldn't make it last,
    courage wasted in the night
    And is it really so hard,
    tell your body to forget the words?
    Pushing a little too much, (or "pushing you tonight"? Not sure...)
    'cause I don't know...

    Can you teach me how to fight?
    Show me what it's like, to give back pain
    Show me how you throw, throw them down
