[Verse 1] It seems years since you held the baby While I wrecked the bedroom You said it was dangerous after Sunday And I knew you loved me He thinks I just became famous And that's sure to mess me up But he's wrong How could I possibly know what I want When I was only twenty-one? There's millions of people Who offer advice and say how I should be But they're twisted and they will never be Any influence on me But you will always be You will always be [Chorus] If I treated you mean I really didn't mean to But you know how it is And how a pregnancy can change you [Verse 2] I see plenty of clothes that I like But I won't go anywhere nice for a while All I want to do is just sit here And write it all down and rest for a while I can't bear to be in another city One where you are not I would return to nothing without you If I'm your girlfriend or not [Chorus] Maybe I was mean But I really don't think so You asked if I'm scared and I Said so [Verse 3] Everyone can see what's going on They laugh 'cause they know they're untouchable Not because what I said was wrong Whatever it may bring I will live by my own policies I will sleep with a clear conscience I will sleep in peace [Chorus] Maybe it sounds mean But I really don't think so You asked for the truth, and I Told you [Outro] Through their own words They will be exposed They've got a severe case of The emperor's new clothes The emperor's new clothes Emperor's new clothes The emperor's new clothes
