Handwritten Lyrics

"Out Of Control" (single version)

Monday morning
Eighteen years of dawning
I said how long
I said how long

It was one dull morning
I woke the world with bawling
I was so sad
They were so glad

I was of the feeling
It was out of control
I had a crazy notion
It was out of control
Oh oh oh

Boys and girls
Go to school, and girls
They make children
Not like this one

I was of the feeling
It was out of control
I had a crazy notion
It was out of control
Oh oh oh

Oh yeah, I was of the feeling
It was out of control
I had a crazy notion
It was out of control
Oh oh oh

I'm out of control
I'm out of control

I fought fate
And bled at the garden gate
The man said childhood
It's in his childhood

Some day I'll die
The choice will not be mine
Will it be too late
You can't fight fate

I was of the feeling
It was out of control
I had a crazy notion
It was out of control
Oh oh oh
