The girl is carefree and joking
The girl is full of love
And we could measure her commitment, couldn't we?
Or the lack thereof

I could see it all coming
The night is looking grim
We're gonna end up with a stain around our mouths
She's gonna end up with him

I want someone to thrill me,
then submit to me totally,
taken by surprise
I want everyone close to me
to promise me they'll stand by me,
promise not to die

Forgive the girl
She's a lonely sinner in a perfect world

The girl is climbing the ladder
The girl is dropping names
Is she shallow, or does she just know what she wants?
Are those things the same?

Success won't make her immortal
Love won't make her whole
We're gonna end up with a chain around our necks
The girl is in control

Come on, everyone close to me,
soak up my anxiety --
make me change my mind
I want you to seduce me,
abuse me and abandon me,
then come back to life

Forgive the girl
She's a lonely sinner in a perfect world
Forgive the girl
It's a mixed-up muddled-up shook-up world

Thrill me and submit to me
and then abandon me
I need somebody --
Take my anxiety
