I got away clean with my fake ID

No more school or mommy for me

Stealing cars and breaking hearts

Pills and thrills and acting smart

 

-The Runaways, “Dead End Justice”

 

I was the girl in a Runaways song;

I was the girl you were told not to be,

the girl who walks out the door at sixteen,

I was the girl in the after school special,

the troubled girl,

outrageous and pretty,

heart on my sleeve

but a stone cold bitch.

I was the girl in those TV movies,

"Born Innocent", or "Sarah T.",

scornful, defiant,

I was the girl with a switchblade

and track marks,

I was the girl in a Runaways song,

the troubled girl

or the girl in trouble,

I was the girl you were told not to be,

the girl who smoked in junior high

and I am the girl in a Runaways song,

a stone cold bitch

with your heart in her teeth,

scornful,

defiant,

I am a girl who’s been nothing but trouble,

and I am the girl you told me to be.
