Starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we’ll make something
Me myself I got nothing to prove

all.

Some boys got the look of a Greek Adonis
Some boys try to talk you off your feet
Some boys they’re gods gift to woman
Some boys think they’re sweet enough to eat

Try to change the habit of a lifetime
Don’t even try
Cause when you cut down deeper than the icing
You realize
