lyrics

My mama said it’s not polite to stare but I did
I stared at you the first time I saw you then ran off and hid
In the shed in your back yard

Thought I would die as the feelings grew
It was how ten year old me figured out
That love can really mess with you

See my mama told me (but she was wrong)
About all the good things in love songs
She meant the best but left out the rest
Now I’m learning as I go along

My mother told me not to write on my skin but I did
I wrote your name on my skin and I pushed the ink in
With the edge of a safety pin

Turns out that didn’t heal so well
It was how teenage me figured out
That love can really hurt like hell

See my mama told me (but she was wrong)
About all the good things in love songs
She meant the best but left out the rest
Now I’m learning as I go along

Now skin to skin and eye to eye
We're feeling so fine
And I say, Ohhhhhhh
This is what they're singing about

See my mama told me (she wasn’t wrong)
Bout all the things in love songs
She wanted the best so she left out the rest
She knew I’d learn it as I went along
She knew I'd learn it as I went along
And now I'm learning as I go along
