Big Squeeze

from by Teenager



My eyes see stars like a tarot card--look & you'll believe.
Now I got no luck counting sheep.
"When I was young"--O I'm out of touch.
And I only sing in the Key of Please, please, please!

O how to put it lightly
I want to tell you twicely
O I want your big squeeze!

I light up like a hotline every time you ring
calling misread misery.
So what is love? But a ton of crush
And i want to heart you forever
'cause there ain't no woman like the one I see.

O but that's an old disaster
Here's to the morning after
O I want your big squeeze!

My heart is a muscle car revved and rumbling
crying backfires on me.
Ah here she comes, cat got your tongue.
O and I'm sweating bullets 'cause I'm staring down the barrel of a diamond ring.

O and I've been to high school
Fell for the lowest I.Q.'s
O I want your big squeeze!

Ma told me time will tell us, O what a relief
Ooh, I believe!
So quit your crying, get me back on my feet,
Ooh, I believe, o my God I believe!

I read my horoscope & it's meant to be eternally bittersweet.
Will I give up? I'm sad enough.

O how to put it lightly,
I want to tell you twicely
O I want your big squeeze
O what good is laughter
when you're just a lonely bastard?
O I want your big squeeze.

Never give up (my big squeeze!)...
