Curl up in bed as long as you can
’cause everything looks the same.
What will you do when you wake up
and your code of life goes lame?

Your best girl left the party with some other guy.
You can’t wipe away this heartache like that tear in your eye.
You’re drunk out on the freeway. Why not smash up and die? When you puked in front of everyone you really lost your cool.
You cried into the mirror and called yourself a fool.

Do you think you ‘re alone?
Do you think you ‘re alone?
You felt so empty handed
when your idol’s feet turned clay.
You felt so sick and nervous
when the whole world looked away.

There are stories on the news you can’t afford to ignore.
Grit your teeth and load your six-guns better barricade the door cuz you don’t think that they’re bluffing ‘bout nuclear world war. Civilization is more than malcontent.
Let Jesus save me this time round. I’d know what he meant.

Do you think you ‘re insane?
Do you think you ‘re insane?

Don’t the ocean sound so pretty as you’re hidden in the dunes? Like a sweetheart in a swimsuit singin’ rock n’ roll tunes
In the deep fog with caresses and her sandy voice that croons, “You know the war is over, honey. Settle down with me.” And God
you know she’s tempting when she whispers, “You’ll be free!”

And so you‘re fallin’ in love.
And so you‘re fallin’ in love.
You want to let the ocean in
and wash it clean away.
Do you remember what it’s like
to be happy every day?
