Needle in the haystack
Pricked my finger when it first made contact
Oh, sad girls find the drunk boys
Seek out and destroy
Seek out and destroy

You were like a lost light
Trapped inside a cellar, stuck at midnight
Oh, I thought I could save you
Only if I knew
Only if I knew

The girl went bad, scantily clad
In a slip of bad news
Pulling off my shoes
The girl went bad, scantily clad
Now I'm dead in the water

A deer in the headlights
Is what you'll always be
Whenever you see me for the rest of your life
A deer in the headlights

A deer in the headlights
Is what you'll always be
What you'll always be
A deer in the headlights

You were just a wolf wrapped under sheepskin
Oh, I let you bite right in
Should have seen your teeth underneath the grin

Drunken boys and sad girls
Mixed together, could destroy the whole world
Oh, I prayed that was untrue
Only if I knew
Only if I knew

The girl went bad, scantily clad
In a slip of bad news
Pulling off my shoes
The girl went bad, scantily clad
Now I'm dead in the water

A deer in the headlights
Is what you'll always be
Whenever you see me for the rest of your life
A deer in the headlights

A deer in the headlights
Is what you'll always be
What you'll always be
A deer in the headlights

You steal away what was safe about me
But I'd rather be caught in the lights
Than be buried by the night

Oh, oh, oh-oh (repeat)

A deer in the headlights
Is what you'll always be
What you'll always be
A deer in the headlights

Oh, oh, oh-oh (repeat)

A deer in the headlights
A deer in the headlights
