Lyrics

Sing a melody, break it to me low
Fall apart and then let go
All I want to do is have a little fun
I'm needy when I'm feeling low

I don't really care who or why or where
Girl, you gotta run around
Everybody knows it's just another average town

Call me when you can, try to understand
I don't want to ask too much
If you want a friend, we can both pretend
You can be my latest crutch

I don't really care who or why or where
Girl, you gotta run around
Everybody knows it's just another average town

Sing a melody, break it to me low
Fall apart and then let go
All I want to do is have a little fun
I'm needy when I'm feeling low

I don't really care who or why or where
Girl, you gotta run around
Everybody knows it's just another average town

Everybody knows it's just another average town
Everybody knows it's just another average town
