Lyrics Chorus:
IN A TOWN THIS SIZE,
THERE'S NO PLACE
TO HIDE,
EVERYWHERE
YOU GO
YOU MEET SOMEONE
YOU KNOW.
YOU CAN'T STEAL
A KISS
IN A PLACE
LIKE THIS,
HOW THE RUMORS
DO FLY
IN A TOWN THIS SIZE.

verse 1:
IN A SMOKEY BAR,
IN THE BACKSEAT
OF YOUR CAR,
IN YOUR OWN LITTLE HOUSE,
SOMEONE'S SURE
TO FIND OUT.
WHAT YOU DO
AND WHAT YOU THINK,
WHAT YOU EAT
AND WHAT YOU DRINK,
IF YOU SMOKE
CIGARETTES,
THEY'LL BE TALKIN'
ABOUT YOUR BREATH.

Chorus:
IN A TOWN THIS SIZE,
THERE'S NO PLACE
TO HIDE,
EVERYWHERE
YOU GO
YOU MEET SOMEONE
YOU KNOW.
YOU CAN'T STEAL
A KISS
IN A PLACE
LIKE THIS,
HOW THE RUMORS DO FLY
IN A TOWN THIS SIZE.

verse 3:
OH,
I HAD A FIGHT
WITH MY GIRLFRIEND
LAST NIGHT,
BEFORE THE MOON
WENT DOWN
IT WAS ALL
OVER TOWN.
HOW
HE MADE ME CRY,
HOW I SAID GOODBYE.
IF IT'S TRUE
OR NOT
DOESN'T SEEM
TO COUNT A LOT.

Chorus:
IN A TOWN THIS SIZE,
THERE'S NO PLACE
TO HIDE,
EVERYWHERE
YOU GO
YOU MEET SOMEONE
YOU KNOW.
YOU CAN'T STEAL
A KISS
IN A PLACE
LIKE THIS,
HOW THE RUMORS
DO FLY
IN A TOWN THIS SIZE.
