Hometown Girls (The Strypes)

I wanna tell you but I can't spit it out T-t-t-tripping on my tongue and my mouth is stiff Feels like I'm hanging off the edge of a cliff And my eyes can't pick a pocket where they're happy to stick I'm running from the point Babe, I'm missing a trick with you My line is up but girl I'm missing my cue. But can't you give me a fix, so I'm craving confidence? Well, I reek of sweat and teenage innocence Well, I want you so, but I know you'll never know Cause I'm too shy, I'm too shy for the hometown girl! I wanna tell you but I'm sick with the fright S-s-s-slipping up I'm caught in the light of lust I get the feeling that you ain't too fussed. My head feels heavy as the regret sinks in I shouldn't be afraid to take it on the chin But I duck, I miss the jab but I'm hit with the hook But can't you give me a fix, so I'm craving confidence? Well, I reek of sweat and teenage innocence Well, I want you so, but I know you'll never know Cause I'm too shy, I'm too shy for the hometown girl!
