Pull up to her parents' place
Long hair and a smile on my face
Her old man met me at the door
I could tell that he expected more
The tattoos, a rock and roll band
Two things that he don't understand
He said, "You'll never be like us
Hey son, why don't you get lost?"

I'm not good enough for you
And I'm not the coolest kid in school
But I got her heart on lock and threw away that key
So you can dream
Yeah, you can dream, but I'm your nightmare
Yeah, I'm your nightmare
I'm your nightmare

He slammed the door right in my face
No sweat cause I'll just hop the gate
She met me by her window sill
Three, two, one
And I was fun until we broke down on Harper Avenue
She laughed cause this was nothing new
I'm poor with a pocket full of dreams
We got more than anybody needs
I've got you

I'm not good enough for you
And I'm not the coolest kid in school
But I got her heart on lock and threw away that key
So you can dream
Yeah, you can dream, but I'm your nightmare

So close your eyes and drift to sleep
Cause daddy's girl will do what she please
While you're at home counting sheep
She'll be with me me, yeah

I'm not good enough for you
I'm not the coolest kid in school
But I got her heart on lock and threw away that key
So you can dream
Yeah, you can dream, but I'm your nightmare
I'm not good enough for you
(Yeah, I'm your nightmare)
And I'm not the coolest kid in school
(Yeah, I'm your nightmare)
But I got her heart on lock and threw away that key
(Yeah, I'm your nightmare)
So you can dream
Yeah, you can dream, but I'm your nightmare
Yeah, I'm your nightmare
I'm your nightmare
Yeah, I'm your nightmare
I'm your nightmare
