Clean - Everclear

I want you to stay the way you are
Skinny legs and all
I know the time is coming
When the boys will begin to call
I wish that I could hurt for you
When you are learning how to fall

You are the reason that I am alive today
You are the reason that I have changed my life
In a wonderful way

I can see the passion
That is growing inside of you

I can see the sadness
That throws a shadow down
On everything you do

I wish I was the man
You thought I was
Back when life was new for you

You don't know what its like
To feel a love like this
You don't know what it's like
To feel this kind of helplessness
You don't know what it's like
To be weak
I hope you never know
I don't want you to be like me

I want you to be clean

Clean

You are going to find a reason to hate me someday
You are going to find a reason to push me away
You are going to find reasons to blame me for your pain

I hope you never lose the magic
That is big inside of you

I hope you never do
The ridiculous things
That I used to do

I hope you never know my disease
Never being good enough
I don't want you to be like me

I want you to be clean

I want you to be clean
