Save Yourself

I remember by the school
You were smoking, acting cool
I always thought you looked a little sad
Swearing at your friends
Digging your heels into the sand
You were 16, going on dead

Every night that summer
Oh I'd sneak out after supper
Lying to my Mom and my Dad
You said they'd never understand
The kind of love that lay between us
And I didn't want to make you mad
No I didn't want to make you mad

You were sweet to me and charming
And oh so damn disarming
I gave it up to you so fast
When we were done you looked right through me
Like you never even knew me
For your first time, you weren't bad
Said for your first time, you weren't bad

Save yourself said my mother
He ain't like the others
There is something there behind his eyes
That please and thank you can't disguise
He's just bad, he's just bad

When I told him bout the baby
He went wild, oh he went crazy
Said I planned it, it was all a big trap
Then he dragged me by the hair
And pulled me down over the stairs
And there was no more baby after that
There was no more baby after that

Save yourself said your mother
Forget about each other
She took my face in her hands
Said don't you have the life that I had
I love my son
He's all that I have
He's just bad, he's just bad
He's just bad, he's just bad
