Lyrics

chewing gum
wonderin' where i've hid and what i've done
wonderin' where i'll go and where i'll run
hide myself away from everyone
chewing gum
doesn't bother you that you're not the one
keeps you up at night in a fever dream
to count the sinful pieces of your mystique
it's yours to keep

chewing gum
innocence lost in electric smiles
perfectly cast in desperate clothes
lovingly hung from city lights
with all their might

and all i need is you by my side
by my side
by my side

chewing gum
wonderin' i've hid and what i've done
wonderin' where i'll go and where i'll run
hide myself away from everyone

chewing gum
got myself a piece of
chewing gum
got myself a piece of
chewing gum
got myself a piece of
chewing gum
got myself a piece of chewing gum
