Please don't make my wedding dress
I'm too young to marry yet
Can you see my pocket knife?
You can't make me be a wife

                                              How the world just turns & turns
                                              How does anybody learn?

Mummy, put your needle down
How did you feel when you were young?
Cos I feel like I've just been born
Even though I'm getting on

                                               How the world slips by so fast
                                               How does anybody last?

As the world keeps coming
And the bees keep humming
And I'll keep running

Flowers I can do without
I don't wanna be tied down
White material will stain
My pocket knife's gotta shiny blade

                                               I'm not trying to cause a fuss
                                              I just wanna make my own fuck-ups
                                              I'm not trying to break your heart
                                              I'm just trying not to fall apart
