  • I guess I just must be a daredevil
    I don't feel anything until I smash it up
    I'm caught on the cold, caught on the hot
    Not so with the warmer lot
    And all I want is a confidant
    To help me laugh it off

    And don't let me ruin me
    I may need a chaperone

    Say I'm an airplane
    And the gashes I got from my heartbreak
    Make the slots and the flaps upon my wing
    And I use them to give me lip
    Hip hip for the lift
    Hip hip for the drag
    I want them all in my bag
    Oh give me anything and I'll turn it into a gift

    But don't let me ruin me
    I may need a chaperone

    Seek me out
    Look at, look at, look at, look at me
    I'm all the fishes in the sea
    Wake me up
    Give me, give me, give me what you got
    In your mind, in the middle of the night

    Maybe you let me look out for you
    Protect what I found in you
    And never let it starve
    Then that way, you let me stay
    Skirt in my skirt like I want to
    And I will try hard to hold onto you with open arms

    But don't let me ruin me
    I may need a chaperone
