You held my hand and walked me home, I know
Why you gave me that kiss it was something like this it made me go oh ohh
You wiped my tears, got rid of all my fears, why did you have to go?
Guess it wasn't enough to take some of my love
Guys are so hard to trust
Did I, not, tell you that I'm not like that girl?
The one who gives it all away

[Chorus:]
Did you think that I was gonna give it up to you, this time?
Did you think that it was somethin I was gonna do and cry?
Don't try to tell me what to do,
Don't try to tell me what to say,
You're better off that way

Don't think that your charm and the fact that your arm is now around my neck
Will get you in my pants I'll have to kick your ass and make you never forget
I'm gonna ask you to stop, thought I liked you a lot, but I'm really upset
Get out of my head, get off of my bed, yeah, that's what I said
Did I not tell you that I'm not like that girl?
The one who throws it all away

[Chorus]
Did you think that I was gonna give it up to you, this time?
Did you think that it was somethin I was gonna do and cry?
Don't try to tell me what to do,
Don't try to tell me what to say,
Your better off that way

This guilt trip that you put me on won't, mess me up I've done no wrong
Any thoughts of you and me have gone away

[Chorus]
Did you think that I was gonna give it up to you, this time?
Did you think that it was somethin I was gonna do and cry?
Don't try to tell me what to do,
Don't try to tell me what to say,
Your better off that way

(Better off that way)
I'm better off alone anyway

    she's not that kind of girl who will just give it up to him so just don't think that
    that's what the songs about "sex" and thats the hardest question out there today and it's better if you say no it's ok to say no
