"This Town" as written by Charlotte Caffey and Jane Wiedlin....
New town fit in
dumb it down and hold it in
stare straight ahead and watch your back
see it through to the end
but I don't know what I'm doing here
haven't left this apartment much this year
I spend all my days with books trying to disappear

And all of those girls who tear me down
they seem so nice when I see them around
but maybe they're right and just letting me know
I don't belong in this town

They small-talk you to death
so awfully impressed with their cleverness
well I have nothing nice to say
so I keep these thoughts to myself
But there must be somethin' wrong with me
cause everyone else makes it look so damned easy
I spend all my nights removed and watching carefully

And all of those guys who tear me down
they seem so nice when I see them around
but maybe they're right and just letting me know
I don't belong in this town

Somehow I thought that things might change
same stupid mistake I always make
and I would leave this town tonight
if I could think where to go

Somehow I thought that things might change
same stupid mistake I always make
and I would leave this town tonight
if I could think where to go
if I could think where to go
if I could think where to go
if I could think where to go
