Was an honest man
Asked me for a phone
Tried to take control
Oh I don't see it that way
I don't see it that way

We shared some ideas
All obsessed with fame
Says were all the same
Oh I don't see it that way
I don't see it that way

Raised in Carolina
I'm not like that
Trying to remind her
When we go back

I missed the last bus
I'll take the next train
I'll try but you'll see
Its hard to explain
I say the right thing
But act the wrong way
I like it right here
But I cannot stay
I watch the TV
Forget what I'm told
Well they are too young
And I am too old
The joke is on you
This place is a zoo
Your right it's true

Cause if you can't decide
I shake my head to say
Everything is just great
Ohh I just can't remember
I just can't remember

Raised in Carolina
- She says -
I'm not like that
Trying to remind her
When we go back

I say the right thing
But act the wrong way
I like it right here
But I cannot stay
I watch the TV
Forget what I'm told
Well I am too young
And they are too old
Oh man can't you see
I'm never so pleased
Pretend to be nice
Though I can be mean
I missed the last bus
I'll take the next train
I'll try but you'll see
Its hard to explain.
