Don't take them faces if they got a little?
Yeah can he smell the stare
I have no skill?

Just remember
I'm no cynic
You know I'm just getting bored

I'm no cynic no I've got a heart of gold
They say I'm cold cold cold, man I was so cold
I'm super sweet sealed with a kiss
Don't get offended if there's something you miss

I only show you what I want you to see
I've got my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
And you see them laughing (you see them laughing)
Don't follow them
Cause their not part of my joke

I always be just who you want me to be
And keep my tongue in my cheek
A hopeless romantic
You'll never see
Cause your not in on the joke

I got my picture in the Beverly*, my parents were proud
Hey kid it's not a bad job yeah
Next thing you know, peculiar faces start hanging around
Dear lord could you spare me
I just have one side to show you all
My ass It's awesome to smell
When you're kissing it.

They say I'm cold cold cold, man am I so cold
I'm super sweet sealed with a kiss
Call your professor if there's something you miss

I only show you what I want you to see
I've got my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
And you see them laughing (you see them laughing)
Don't follow 'em
Cause their not part of my joke

I only be just what you want me to be
And keep my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
A hopeless romantic
And you'll never see
Cause your not in on the joke

No you don't know
You don't know me
No you don't know
You don't know me
No you don't know

I only show you what I want you to see
I've got my tongue my tongue in my cheek
If you see them laughing
Don't follow 'em, cause they are not part of my joke

I always be just who you want me to be
And keep my tongue in my cheek
You'll never see
Cause your not in on the joke



















Don't take them faces at their value in a cynical town 
Yeah, can't you smell the stale air? 
I had no skill but I had heart so then I turned it around 
And just remember I'm no cynic, 
you know I'm just getting bored I'm no cynic, 
you know I got a heart of gold 
They say I'm cold, cold, cold, baby, why so cold? 
I'm super sweet sealed with a kiss 
Don't get offended if there's something you miss 
I only show you what I want you to see 
I got my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek If you see them laughing, don't follow in 
Cause they're the butt of my joke 
I'll always be just who you want me to be 
And keep my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek 
A hopeless romantic, you'll never see 
Cause you're not in on the joke 
I got my picture in the paper and my parents were proud 
Hey, kid, that's not a bad job, yeah 
Next thing you know peculiar faces start hanging around 
Dear Lord, could you spare me? 
I just got one side to show you all 
My ass is awesome so smile when you're kissing it all 
They say I'm cold, cold, cold 
Baby, why so cold? I'm super sweet sealed with a kiss 
Call your professor if there's something you miss 
I only show you what I want you to see
I got my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek 
If you seem them laughing, don't follow in 
Cause they're the butt of my joke 
I'll always be just who you want me to be 
And keep my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek 
A hopeless romantic, you'll never see 
Cause you're not in on the joke 
No, you don't know, you don't know me 
No, you don't know, you don't know me 
No, you don't know me, no, oh, no, oh 
I only show you what I want you to see 
I got my tongue, tongue in my cheek 
If you see them laughing, don't follow in 
Cause they're the butt of my joke 
I'll always be just who you want me to be 
And keep my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek 
A hopeless romantic, you'll never see 
Cause you're not in on the joke
