Lyrics:

Trying things the fast way
Talking plain and free
That ainít the way to do the things
Thatís what she said to me

I didnít know if she was right
And I didnít know how to act
I only knew that I was still alone
That was the only fact

So I told her Ďbout my problems
And I told her what I dreamed
This time I went the better way
At least thatís how it seemed

Breakiní through the ceilings
And crackiní through the walls
That ainít the way to do the things
Or every time youíll fall

Going steady, going straight
She sure did laugh a lot
This marathon seemed worth its wait
Yet it never did get hot

And then some day some other dude
He was a guy I knew
The woman had a boy-friend now
And a very best friend, too

Now she talks about her problems
Now she talks Ďbout what she dreams
Again Iím on the losing end
At least thatís how it seems

Breakiní through the ceilings
And crackiní through the walls
That ainít the way to talk to girls
Or every time youíll fall
