The girl I left behind me was bad at being good
The happiest arsonist that ever was
The happiest communist that ever was

The girl I left behind me-you said she wouldn't do
I know who I want to be-I want to be like you
So why do I change myself to be worthy of you

She's a needer
A bleeder
And likes to be on top
She's a girlfriend
A whirlwind
And not so logical
But she's an ocean in motion
And magical but you won't let her shine

The girl I left behind me
We've spoken once or twice
She says I have twice her strength well isn't that nice
She says I can call her anywhere or any time

She's a needer
A bleeder
I know that says a lot and
She's a girlfriend
A whirlwind
And not so logical
But she's an ocean in motion
And magical but you won't let her shine

You watch me as I fall apart for you
Watch me as I fall apart for you
Watch me as I waste myself and I waste myself and I waste myself

The girl I left behind me
Was bad at being good
The happiest arsonist that ever was
