Bad Boys & Good Girls

Focus in on a good girl

as she tunes out

and daydreams about him again

ignoring her nerdy boyfriend

as he passes her the chemistry lab

as usual he comes in late

ever so nonchalant

in his beat up leather

and torn skinny jeans

everyone knows he’s going no where

and in her head she knows it too

but he’s a habit she can’t kick

and every moment without him

feels as painful as withdrawal

it’s been like this since freshman year

the moment she first saw him

walking into honors french

silver spikes in his ears

and his hair in a Mohawk

despite his reputation

when they worked in class together

she could barely keep from blushing

when he asked her out to dinner

even though it’s just pretend

everyone knows he’s going no where

and in her head she knows it too

but he’s a habit she can’t kick

and every moment without him

feels as painful as withdrawal

in the next room

there’s a boy who adores her

and although he says he loves her

he feels her slipping away

when Jaimee walks into the room

he has not leather

and his shoes are tearing at the seams

just like his heart

when he catches her dreaming

they’ve been together for a year

but their passion’s slowly fading

and his heart is painfully breaking

worn at the seams

from all her daydreams

everyone knows he’s going no where

and in her head she knows it too

but he’s a habit she can’t kick

and every moment without him

feels as painful as withdrawal

but it’s normal

they’re in high school

few relationships last this long

in a year he’ll leave for college

and Jaimee may drop out

everyone knows he’s going no where

and in her head she knows it too

but he’s a habit she can’t kick

and every moment without him

feels as painful as withdrawal

she doesn’t know

that two hearts will break in tandem

all for the sake of a romance

that everyone knows

will never be

that’s the thing about bad boys

good girls fall too hard

and too fast

seeing the best in the worst of them

and wonder why their heart is broken

not knowing they’re doing the same

a broken heart you can’t fix

innocent love ruined

everyone knows he’s going no where

and in her head she knows it too

but he’s a habit she can’t kick

and every moment without him

feels as painful as withdrawal
