It's late enough all you kids should be home The policeman says as he takes your beer for his own You remember wondering what his wife Thought about his occupation
He knows that you were just chasing a dream To the town line and then back and over again So he winks at you girls And tells you all "I'll see you later"
I was stealing kisses from a boy Now I'm begging affection from a man In my house dress don't know you who I am I'm standing in your kitchen
It's late enough your husband's dinner is cold So you wrap it up and leave it for him on the stove It's probably the traffic again Or another important meeting
And you haven't talked to an adult all day 'cept your neighbor who drives you crazy When he finally gets in he's sure not in the mood for talking
And hours become days and days become years And you could burn down this town If they made matches from fear But you're no worse off than anybody else Hey don't you even know, don't you even know yourself
So you're standing outside your high school door The one you walked out of twenty years before And you whisper to all of the girls, run, run, run
I was stealing kisses from a boy Now I'm begging affection from a man In my house dress don't you know who I am Take a look at who I am, I'm stealing kisses
