lyrics

At the edge of the party
and the end of the night
she's saying no to the little things
to make sure he'll act right
just like her mama taught her
the day she turned fifteen
just like the things she'll teach her daughter
that she hopes
she hopes she'll never need

and of course she's shaking her head
and of course he's smiling yes
but she can feel the way his hand gets tighter
and her skin rubs raw inside her dress
and she knows, if he knew
why she's walking away he'd feel ashamed
but mama said child when it comes to nice boys
it pays, it pays, it pays to be afraid

One of these days we're gonna want something more
than wrapping ourselves in our parents' words
behind closed doors

saying:
no one in the world can hurt you
no one in the world can hurt you
no one in the world can hurt you now
