Someone tell me why I do the things
That I don't wanna do?
When you're around me with somebody else

Someone tell my why I act like a fool
When things don't go my way?
When you're around me I'm somebody else

There is good reason I guess
Having it once, gone too far
When you clean out the hive

Does it make you want to cry?
Are you still being followed
By the teenage FBI?

Someone tell me why, someone tell me why
Someone tell me why I do the things
That I don't wanna do?
When you're around me, I'm somebody else
Someone tell me why, someone tell me why

Someone tell me why I do the things
That I don't wanna do?
When you're around me I'm somebody else

Someone tell my why I act like a fool
When things don't go my way?
And you're around me I'm somebody else

There is good reason I guess
Having it once, gone too far
When you clean out the hive

Does it make you want to cry?
Are you still being followed
By the teenage FBI?

Someone tell me why, someone tell me why
Someone tell me why I do the things
That I don't wanna do?
When you're around me, I'm somebody else

Someone tell me why
Someone tell me why
Someone tell me why
