If I woke up next to you,
Would you hate me for
My willingness to give it up?
Humming Hallelujah,
Walking down the halls,
I just want to be a part of you.

But I'm just a dreamer,
Writing things I'm not sure I'll ever feel.
To hell with my good name--
I want to play a dangerous game,
To come home worse for wear.

Teenage love on a gym floor,
Tonight I'll give it all to you...
If only my flawed concience would let me.
The golden rule never seemed so cruel.
I knew the low dance lights were too heavy for me.

Could one careless night
Be so wrong?
