Impolite and insecure
And in spite of it all
He thinks you're perfect

You're fully focused, honey
On the prize
Hold his hand, dear
Until he cries...uncle

Where does it hurt?
(Everywhere)
Can you stand up?
(I don't care)
Are you worried, worried?
(Yes!)
There's no explaining her behavior
(We know, we know, we know)
She makes the world turn backwards

Like a liar lost
Everything she does, yeah
Cleave yourself in two
And neither one is you

Black and blue
And that's the way it is with you
The worst is yet to come
The crowds are yelling "jump, jump you fool"

Where does it hurt?
(Everywhere)
Can you stand up?
(I don't care)
Are you worried, worried?
(Yes!)
There's no explaining her behavior
(We know, we know, we know)

She makes the world turn backwards
There's no explaining her behavior

She makes the world turn backwards
There's no explaining her behavior

She makes the world turn backwards
There's no explaining her behavior

She makes the world turn backwards
We know, we know, we know
