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

Oh, we shared some ideas
All obsessed with fame
Says we're 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 try but you see, it's hard to explain
I say the right things, 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
The joke is on you, this place is a zoo
"You're right it's true"

Says he can't decide
Shake my head to say
Everything's just great
Oh, 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 things, 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 nervous, so please
Pretend to be nice, so I can be mean
I missed the last bus, we take the next train
I try but you see, it's hard to explain
