  • And boys are so cold
    They speak without meaning
    The only time they talk is in their sleep
    And girls are a bore
    They touch without feeling
    Their secrets always far too grim to keep
    And up until now
    You've lived in their shadows
    Trying hard to please them
    But they'll never change
    As long as they're breathing

    Thinking hurts and thoughts don't rhyme
    To those of us who've never tried
    To find a face behind our lipstick smiles
    And as our pretty faces die
    Our broken hearts will wonder why
    The make-up just won't hide
    The scars of time

    And boys are so cruel
    So don't let them find you tonight
    And girls are so vain
    So put them behind you tonight
    I'll cast you a spell
    A magic where everyone
    Plays dead forever
    And after tonight
    They'll never remind you
