Yeah, there was a time I didn't like the love, I liked the climbers
I was no sister then, I was running out of time and one liners
And I was afraid, like you are, when you're too young to know the time, and
So I watch the way you take your fear and horde the horizon
You point, you have a word for every woman you can lay your eyes on
Like you own them just be cause you bought the time
And you turn to me, you say you hope I'm not threatened
Oh and that's not petty
As cool as I am, I thought you'd know this already
I will not be afraid of women
I will not be afraid of women
So now we're at a club, you watch the woman dancing, she is drunk
She is smiling and she's falling in a slow, descending funk
And the whole bar is loud and proud and everybody's trying, yeah
You play the artist, saying, "Is it how she moves, or how she looks?"
I say, it's lonliness suspended to our own like grappling hooks
And as long as she's got noise, she's fine
But I could teach her how I learned to dance when the music's ended
Oh and that's not petty
As cool as I am, I thought you'd know this already
I will not be afraid of women
I will not be afraid of women
You tried to make me doubt
To make me guess
Tried to make me feel like a little less
Oh, I liked you when your soul was bared
I thought you knew how to be scared
And now it's amazing what you did to make me stay
But truth is just like time, it catches up and it just keeps going
Oh, and so I'm leaving, you can find out how much better things can get
And if it helps, I'd say I feel a little worse than I did when we met
So when you find someone else, you can try again, it might work next time
You look out of the kitchen window and you shake your head and say low
"If I could believe that stuff, I'd say that woman as a halo."
And I look out and say, "Yeah, she's really blond."
And then I go outside and join the others, I am the others
Oh and that's not petty
As cool as I am, I thought you'd know this already
I will not be afraid of women
I will not be afraid of women
