she's out of luck and out of hope and out of cigarettes
misunderstood with naked pictures on the internet
her social deviance is teasing me I know what I want

and i'm really gonna really let her know (woah)
that I like her but I just dont care enough
to fool around with love

yeah my baby's pretty as a car crash
sexy as the stinger of a hornet in your arm
just another modern swinger
screaming "catch me if you can" with a cigarette in hand
and it’s love,
it's heavy and it hurts and it's love

strung out on blow she doesnt know why shes not feeling good
dropped out of school and now shes moving out to Hollywood
her reckless decadence is taking things a little too far

and i'm really gonna really let her know (woah)
that I like her but I just dont care enough
to fool around with love

yeah my baby's pretty as a car crash, subtle as a splinter
yeah my baby's smooth as sandpape,r warm just like the winter
screaming "catch me if you can" with a cigarette in hand
and its love
its heavy and it hurts and its love

staring at my shoes thinking of something to say
but nothing's better than what silence is saying
when every time I turn around she's always looking away
it's just the nature of the game that we're playing

And I think I’m tapping out,
I think I’m gonna skip the title bout

    General Commenti think this song is about how a guy likes this girl, who is a rebel but doesn't want to fool around with her.
    she is a rebel "dropped out of school and now shes moving out to hollywood" and a "modern swinger" but he still likes her "and im really gonna let her know that i like her" yet feels he can't "but i just don't care enough to fool around with love".

    General Commentyea i agree with the one below me. sounds like shes one who doesnt really care and just does what she wants. a free spirit. sounds like he likes her but doesnt think shes worth getting as far as 'love' and getting that serious. shes one who just jumps from guy to guy 'modern swinger' and he knows it wouldnt last.
