never been burned by a beautiful boy.
i always had myself a couple little toys.
none of them matter when you're laying next to me.
you know you shook me like a baby in a tree.

but, hey, is it easier,
to be out there on your own?
did you find what you're looking for?
i know i'll never be the one that you adore...

i need time to grow.
i need someone else to call my own.
don't need you to need me.
i don't love you, so come love me, tonight.

never been turned by a beautiful girl.
i've always loved a couple women in this world.
all of them matter when you're laying next to me.
i know i shook you like a baby in a tree.

but no, it ain't easier,
to be out here on my own.
i haven't found what i'm looking for.
i know you'll never be the one that i adore...

i need time to grow.
i need someone else to call my own.
don't need you to need me.
i don't love you, so come love me.

'cause nothing is gonna change:
if i wanna leave, then i'm gonna leave.
'cause nothing is gonna change:
if i wanna leave, then i'm gonna leave.

and everything is clearer now.
but, lovers have gone their way.
colors no longer fill my head:
everything is black and grey,
all black and grey.
i will curse this fickle mind of mine.
i've wasted so much time.
and when will i learn?
nothing's ever good enough:
when it's mine.

i need time to grow.
i need someone else to call my own.
don't need you to need me.
i don't love you, so come love me.


i don't love you, so come love me.
i don't love you, so come love me.
i don't love you, so come love me.
i don't love you, so come love me, tonight.

    General Commentlola ray was amazzzingg. im from rhode island and i guess not many people know them cause the only fans there were me and my sister and these three drunk kids.
    we got there super early and saw them unloading stuff so we went up to john to ask him when they were going to open the doors and he was just the nicest guy. he's real sweet with his fans and thats good. i guess he was a little disappointed cause know one was really there but then again he was appreciative that we were there at least. i met brian too and he looks like this big scary monster but when you actually talk to him hes a big sweetheart. we got pics from them and we bought a bunch of crap so i guess they were grateful. john played great. his voice was great and the music was played SO well. when they played "we're not having any fun" i could literally feel it in my heart. i know that souunds weird but the music is just so powerful. i seriously think lola ray is the best band out there and if the right people hear them, they will be the biggest thing. i just dont want that to happen. i like being able to chat with the bandmates and stand right up against the stage.
    their performance was awesome, the members are sweet but yet still hardcore rockers, the music is the best out there, the vocals are wicked unique, and their just a great band altogether.

    General Commenti'm a bit confused? maybe this song is about his relationship with a beautiful boy. and he's never been turned for a beautiful girl? although he's attracted to them, he prefers boys? nonetheless, a great song..
