I was twelve
the tween years
innocent but not quite

when John Mellencamp's
Hurts So Good video came out
bopping round the living room
with my friend Tracy
wearing a bra stuffed with barbie clothes
my tiny buds had just started to blossom
but hadn't fully bloomed

popping my gum
singing along with the song
hurts so good yeah, yeah, yeah,
my virgin cherry still intact
not having a clue what I was talking about

Tracy on the other hand
already looked
acted like a woman
big boobs, tiny waist
real popular
sure of herself with the boys

my parents didn't like her
they thought she was sleazy
because she was poor I think
I thought her exciting

she taught me things
like where her heroin addict
step dad kept his rig hidden
as well as his hustler mags

thinking back her step dad
sure did like to tell us
how beautiful we were
she cried a lot

stabbed me in the back
lied on me
to her stoner friends
all to be cool

Tracy taught me many things
I wish I'd never known

& love
doesn't hurt so good
