And I pray all day, you won't stop when you see me
You'll turn your pretty head and just walk by
I know one day when I'm wiser I'll look back on this with laughter
But today it just makes me want to die.

Oh, and it's not what I wanted
But it's what I need
Do what's right
Don't stop when you see me...

And I pray all day, you won't brake when you see me
You'll slam your peddle right down to the floor
When you finally get your license do me one last act of kindness
In the car that your father paid for.

I fell so hard when I fell from your arms
I felt the cold hard ground beneath me
Will you make it official?
Don't stop when you see me...

I keep myself sane in the knowledge
Everyone who follows me is worse
The sequel was fun, babe
But it never tops the first...

And I pray all day, you won't stop when you see me
Darling I'm a nightmare dressed as
A really handsome nightmare.
