She was shy, her self belief still left a lot to be desired
You compared her to her heroes she could not but feel inspired

She was taken in, she believed
all the things you said were real
Never noticed she was feeling just as you meant her to feel

What you say and what you mean
are very different things indeed
what I'd give to hear you say
"It's love, OK"

Never say I'm the one who lied
I cross my heart and hope to die
Never say I'm a clueless tease
And most of all don't itchy chin me

All she said was she was trying
to believe in something new (in something new)
How the hell did you inform that
that she's leaving you

I forbid a single word to leave your lips
'Til I've explained ('til I've explained)
well, that's it you've had your chance
I won't tell you the truth again

She is no longer fooled by your sad attempts to be cool
She could still love you though if you'd see her as an equal
if you'd just say what she wants you to
if you'd just say "I love you as you"
if you'd just say "please, don't say we're through"
if you'd just shed your pride
But you never do.

    General CommentAccording to the Urban Dictionary, an "itchy chin" is "when someone says something that you don't believe, or that you know... isn't true." I suppose it comes from the skeptical look one might have when scratching one's chin. It must be a British idiom or colloquialism; I have never heard it in the United States.

    There's an incorrect lyric above in the second stanza, which should read:

    "How the hell did you INFER FROM that
    that she's leaving you?"
