What's there that makes you want to be lonely
What's there to keep you sitting at home
He'd always say no no no as if he wanted you to be hungry
Well the same things you're missing
Could get you into something else
Better leave when to stay is only
Nothing but being alone
What I wanted you to know
Is kid things
Seemed like nothing at all
Kid things
Make it better than it was
Kid things
Seemed like nothing at all
But kid things
Make it better than it was
Hey what you got that makes you want to be lonely
Hey what you got that makes it a better way to be
She said no no no I can't get any love and it's a Sunday.
I said oh yeah what makes you think I wanted it that way.
Cause one or two more smiles from you and
I don't need anything else.
What I wanted you to know
Is kid things
Seemed like nothing at all
Kid things
Make it better than it was
We're just kids
We spend all night on the phone
It's a kid thing
But I sleep better when I'm not alone
What I want right now
Is just some more
Gimme more..
Hey what you think
Is you're not getting any younger
What I know is that you're not really very old
I know you wanna say no no no
It feels much better in the summer
Well if it isn't warm where you're sittin'
Then kitten come on in out of the cold
Cause all I know is when I'm with you
Well I don't need anything else.
What I wanted you to know
Is kid things
Seemed like nothing at all
And kid things
Make it better than it was
We're just kids...
We spend all night on the phone
It's a kid thing..
So I sleep better
When I'm not alone
Kid things
Seemed like nothing at all
Kid things
Make it better than it was
We're just kids...
Just like driving a car...
It's a kid thing
And the further out the closer in you are
