Talkin' 'bout a hot-wired kid who thought he knew it all
And what he didn't know, he didn't need to
Changin' women like tires when their use wore thin
Retread feelings, that's all we knew
He's been runnin' lights for years, grindin' down those forward gears
He's got a lady in the back seat, lady in the front seat
Eyes on the road and whispers in both ears

Chorus: one too many girlfriends, and too little feeling left
He better find the one, he's gonna take on the run, before it runs him down
He's got far too many choices, he better make a few of them
He wants to have it all, and wind up standin' tall
I hope his dream never ends, I guess it just depends
He's got one too many girlfriends

Well there's so damn much writin' written on his walls
I can't imagine that he doesn't read it
Such a loud clear message screaming through the halls
Keep your advice, he don't need it
He's heard of living up to the truth, thinks it means giving up his youth
He doesn't wanna get a haircut, looking for a shortcut
He needs a change, he needs more than a phone booth

Chorus

Whooo, there's anger and romance at every turn
Whooo, be careful boy that you don't crash and burn
You're in about as deep as you can get
It's a matter of time before you get wet
I wouldn't be in your shoes on a bet

(solo)

He's been runnin' lights for years, grindin' down those forward gears
He's got a lady in the back seat, lady in the front seat
Eyes on the road and whispers in both ears

Chorus

He's got one too many girlfriends... look out!
