  • It's understood, I said it many ways
    Too scared to run, I'm too scared stay
    I said I'd leave, but I could never leave her
    And if I did, you know I'd never cheat her

    But this I ask, it's what I want to know
    How would you feel, if I should choose to go
    Another guy, you think he'd be unlike me
    Another guy, you think he'd want to fight me

    She's a dove, she's a fucking nightmare
    Unpredictable, it was my mistake to stay here
    On the go and it's way too late to play
    I need a girl that I can train

    I heard it once, I'm sure I heard it twice
    My dad used to give me all of his advice
    He would say you got to turn your back and run now
    Come on son, you haven't got a chance now

    She's a dove, she's a fucking nightmare
    Unpredictable, it was my mistake to stay here
    On the go and it's way too late to play
    I need a girl that I can train

    She's a dove, she's a fucking nightmare
    Unpredictable, it was my mistake to stay here
    On the go and it's way too late to play
    I need a girl that I can train

    Need a girl that I can train
    Need a girl that I can train
    Turn your back and run now
    You haven't got a chance now

    Need a girl that I can train
    Need a girl that I can train
    Turn your back and run now
    You haven't got a chance now Writer/s: MARK HOPPUS, TOM DELONGE, TRAVIS BARKER

  • Other One from Alt PennAlways thought Delonges lyrics were, “ she’s a dump , she’s a f--kin nightmare
  • John from Chester, VaThe song is based around the hook "I need a girl that I can train," as in dog training. DeLonge, the song's primarily lyricist, explains the song in a 2000 tour booklet: "Girls are so much smarter than guys and can see the future as well as never forget the past. So that leaves the dog as the only thing men are smarter than."
  • Matt from Wilmington, OhThis is a great song i love it the intro riff is so fun to play
