I met her in the eleventh grade
She was already on some secret probation
A mother's nightmare
A father's dream
She was Egyptian to me
Took me an hour just to get myself brave
I called her up at her mother's house
My voice was shaking
We were suspended on the line
Until she said "Ok, fine."
It was my first time being the one to choose.
It was the hardest thing I ever had to do.
We drove around Santa Monica
Too young or broke to go into the places people go to
Not much was open at nine PM
I took her home and we hung out
She knew a lot more about it than me
She took my hand and showed me things
It wasn't guilty, or dirty
It was tender, a little awkward
and I came.
It was my first time. It was her third.
I think we both did fine, but it got better after that.
Velvet Underground was playing 'Heroine'
That might sound inappropriate
But it's such a beautiful song.
And we weren't doing anything wrong
Or maybe we were, but that turned us on.
It was my first time. I think she could tell.
But she kept me on, and she taught me well
