(David Malloy/Gary Burr)

If I seem like a little too much to handle
If I laugh like an angel on judgment day
If I burn like the sparks of a roman candle
Oh baby you made me that way

If my heart starts to pound like a bass drum drummin'
Like the beat when an old Sun record plays
And if I turn my back when the train is comin'
Oh baby you made me that way

I used to play it safe
Never thinkin' what I might miss
Who knew there'd come a day
I would come alive like this
With just one kiss

If I choose the edge over the middle
If I moan at the sound of a certain name
And if I lean just this side of illegal
Oh baby you made me that way

Well I used to play it safe
Never thinkin' what I might miss
Who knew there'd come a day
I would come alive like this
With just one kiss

If I seem like a little too much to handle
If I laugh like an angel on judgment day
And if I burn like the sparks from a roman candle
Oh baby you made me that way
Well, I'm proud to say
Oh baby you made me that way
