Written by John Mellencamp

I bring you renegade stories
And you tell me I'm crazy and wild
You say that I lack maturity
Stop actin' like a child
But you know I am a liar
And my promises only get in my way
You feel so good, when you're in my arms
Ain't there one right thing I can say
To make oyu want to stay

Chorus:
Oh, oh baby, baby
Don't misunderstand me
Oh, oh baby, baby

You tell me that you love me but
This ain't no way for you to live
You hold so tight your fingers are broken
I take more than I care to give
But it's heartbeat to heartbeat
It's push and shove and steal and prove
It's hand to mouth sometimes
If we run hard enough someday baby
Gonna find some room to move

Chorus

All of this showin' and provin'
Is nothing but fear
Everybody can do what they want
But they just can't do it here
Girl hold on to my childishness
I'm gonna break on through
Out of this mess

Chorus
