Living on a farm road
Takin' all your time slow
Cheerin' from the bleachers
Don't you wish your life was gold?
I bet you do

Passing out your lighter
Sneakin' through the doorway
Fakin' like you just stayed home
That's how it really goes
You know it does

I don't think that we're bad
I don't think we're bad at all
It just takes some time alone

Hey Hey Girl
We're the wild type
But we've been around the block one too many times tonight

Fucked up at the disco
Slipping in the K-Hole
Sleeping in the parks, no fun

They we need an education, lack imagination
Holding out for something dumb

Kickin' for the third time
And now we're done

Bread and butter
Cryin' on the subway
Waitin' on a cold day
Don't react, here he comes

I don't think we're bad
I don't think we're bad at all
It just takes some time alone

Hey Hey girl, we're the wild type
But we've been around the block once too many times tonight
(x2)

I know that it's easy
That it's easier said than done
I know that It's easy
That it's easier said than done

Hey hey girl, we're the wild type...(x2)

    General CommentThis version is wonderful.

    I can't decide whether I like it better than Louisa or not, though. They're both damn good.

    I think the lyrics are self explanatory.

    General Commentteenage love, looking back on the simplicity of things, but how complicated it seemed at the time.

    General CommentI don't think that the lyrics have that broad a meaning to simply encompass all teenage life/love- not everyone lives their teen lives like this? I took it more as a song to a girl who is pretty miserable with the live she leads, and tries to make things better with parties and drugs but gets too caught up in it all. He is just reminding her that they're not bad people for trying to make up for the shitty parts of life with fun 'wild' parts, but they do have to cool their heels sometime, or they'll never get out of the circumstances that made them so miserable to begin with.

    General Commentalso there are some lines totally missing in one verse. it sounds like:

    'damaged like a beat cop
    kick it for the third time
    smoke a bowl and now we're done.'

    so i am going to go ahead assuming that is what he is saying.

    General Commenti like this song.. it illustrates my fourteen-year-old life pretty perfectly.. sneaking out, sneaking in, feeling so hardcore.

    General Commentyeah i agree that its about teenage bad-assery, but also wild-type in genetics means the normal trait, with no mutations. i dont know if im reading too much into this, but it could be a double entendre meaning also that teenagers are normally like this and its hard to grow up, change, and forget how you used to live...?
