Call my name, here I come
Ninety to nothing, watch me run
You call
I am ashamed to say
Ugly girls know their fate
Anybody can get laid
You want a room with a fire escape
I want to tell you how much I hate this
Don't leave that stuff all over me
It pains me
Please, just leave it
I should toss that vanity license plate
Toss that make-up painted face
Box those poems, chocolate cake
Scratch that name on the record player
Please, just leave me be
Don't lay that stuff all over me
It crawls all over
All over me

Call my name, here I come
Your last ditch lay, will I never learn?
Caramel turn on a dusty apology
It crawls all over me
You turn all over
It pains me
Please, just leave it

    General CommentI like to think it's about a young,unpretty girl who falls in love with someone,and loses her virginity with this person. But this doesn't sound like a pleasant experience,in fact she feels ashamed,scared and soring...She would like it to end as soon as possible (please just leave me be...don't lay that stuff all over me...) because she didn't simply want to "get laid",she longed to "make love"...That's different.
