BIG CLUMSY HANDS

Big clumsy hands,
Used to hold hers up to his.
Felt as safe as they could be
And all that she,
Needed were his fingertips.

They were walking in a daze,
Just couldn't believe their luck,
They could make each other smile,
Even for a little while
and that was all it took.

But woa oh,
The first time's always tough,
Trying to figure out,
When enough means enough,
Don't believe your parents,
They donn't remember how it was,
They'll just tell you woa oh oh oh,
To be young and in love.

They'd go driving after school,
Get the keys to moms old car,
And they burned a lot of gas,
But they never went too fast,
And they never got too far.

Til the fire in his gut,
Stopped listening to his head,
Couldn't hear her saying no,
Please go slow,
Couldn't hear a word she said.

But woa oh,
The first times always tough,
Trying to figure out but it never seems enough,
Don't believe your parents,
They don't remember how it was,
They'll just tell you woa oh oh,
To be young and in love.

There was blood on the seats,
And tears in her eyes,
But his were shut tight
Couldn't tell it wasn't right,
she just looked away and cried.

He started up the car,
Drove her back to her house,
She didn't say a word,
As he walked her to the curb,
So he kissed her on the mouth.

But woa oh the first time's always tough,
Trying to figure out,
When enough means enough,
Don't believe your parents,
They don't remember how it was,
They'll just tell you woa oh oh,
To be young and in love.
