And my confession would have you on the floor
- if you knew the truth
But that's the way they want you -
Everyone's a sucker for the haze of youth
We're all prairie children, brought up on the lies of the past
So it's no surprise then - you will have to ask....

Watch out Billie 'fore you go to fast
You say it couldn't hurt, but then it couldn't last
You get fifteen minutes while they're watching you
You better hold your breath and hope your dreams come true.
Watch out girl you'll never be the same
If it's a cruel world you gotta play the game
You get fifteen minutes while they know your face
You'd better pray to God you win the human race.

I'm like the weather, burning up to fire, burning up to ice.
But i'm deathly certain the little things we love shouldn't be denied
We get fed something, but we don't want it,
We won't live our life with lies
You want your own heaven that you'll make better,
You just want your own life.

Watch out Billie 'fore you go too fast
You say it couldn't hurt, but then it couldn't last
You get fifteen miute while they're watching you
You better hold your breath and hope your dreams come true.
Watch out girl you'll never be the same
If it's a cruel world you gotta play the game
You get fifteen minutes while they know your face
You'd better pray to God you win the human race.
