  • 'It's late enough
    All your kids should be home.'
    The policeman says
    As he takes your beer for his own

    You remember
    Wondering what his wife thought
    About his occupation
    He knows that you were just chasing a dream

    To the town line and back and over again
    So he winks at your girls
    And tells you all, 'I'll see you later.'

    I was stealing kisses from a boy
    Now I'm begging affection from a man
    In my house dress
    Don't you know who I am?
    Don't you know who I am?
    Standing in your kitchen

    It's late enough
    Your husband's dinner is cold
    So you wrap it up and leave it for him on the stove
    It's probably the traffic again

    Another important meeting
    You haven't talked to an adult all day
    Except for your neighbor who drives you crazy
    When he finally gets in
    He's sure not in the mood for talkin'

    I was stealing kisses from a boy
    Now I'm begging affection from a man
    In my house dress
    Don't you know who I am?
    Don't you know who I am?
    I'm standing in your kitchen

    And hours become days
    Days become years
    And you could burn down this town
    If they made matches from fear
    'Cause you're no worse off than anybody else
    Hey, don't you even know?
    Don't you even know yourself?

    So you're standing outside your high school doors
    The ones you walked through twenty years before
    And you whisper to all the girls
    'Run, run, oh, run.'

    I was stealing kisses from a boy
    Now I'm begging affection from a man
    In my house dress
    Don't you know who I am?
    Don't you know who I am?
    Take a look at who I am
    Take a look at who I am
    I'm stealing kisses
