Neither Girl Meets World nor "Troublemaker" belong to me.

Put me in a special school
'Cause I am such a fool
And I don't need a single book
To teach me how to read

Who needs stupid books?
They are for petty crooks
And I will learn by studying
The lessons in my dreams

Maya Hart didn't need high school. She learned everything she needed in life on the streets of the city. In her art, in her dreams, from her, ahem, /older/ boyfriend, Mr. Joshua Mattews. Between her and Josh they could figure out anything they needed to.

So turn off the TV
'Cause thats what others see
And movies are as bad as
Eating chocolate ice cream

They only sicken me
Don't let me play football
I'll sack the quarterback
And jack the brother of the ball

Josh Matthews was not like either of his brothers had been. His parents barely knew what to do with him- he wasn't an athlete like Eric, or a nice-guy (read: nerd) like Cory had been. He liked rock 'n' roll, and Maya Hart.

I'm a troublemaker
Never been a faker
Doing things my own way
And never giving up

I'm a troublemaker
Not a double taker
I don't have the patience
To keep it on the up

Josh would never give up on his dreams of rock star fame. Maya couldn't be bothered with the "work hard" aspects of achieving said fame. She wanted the get rich quick method or else why bother?

I picked up a guitar
What does this signify?
I'm gonna play some heavy metal riffs
And you will die

You wanted arts and crafts
How's this for arts and crafts?
That's right

Josh used his guitar to escape as much as Maya used her art. They both had a passion, but Josh honestly believed that he could become a rock icon like all his idols. Maya didn't think she'd ever be as good as the greats of the art world, so why bother?

I'm growing out my hair
I'm movin' out to Cherokee
I'm gonna be a rock star
And you will go to bed with me

'Cause I can't work a job
Like any other slob
Punchin' in and punchin' out
And suckin' up to Bob

The two were so different it was a wonder they dated at all. If anyone were to ask though, Maya'd plainly respond that he was going to be a rock star and she was going to be his groupie. Why bother succeeding on her own when she had a boy who actually had a chance?

Marrying a bitch
Having 7 kids
Giving up and growing old
And hoping there's a God

Love, marriage, kids- Josh and Maya would happily leave all that to the less imaginative types. The Riley's, Lucas', and Farkles' of the world could get by on the good old American dream, but these two were much too hardcore for that lifestyle.

I'm a troublemaker
Never been a faker
Doing things my own way
And never giving up

I'm a troublemaker
Not a double taker
I don't have the patience
To keep it on the up

Josh couldn't disappoint his folks though, and he did his best, otherwise they never would've indulged his love of music. Maya, on the other hand, had nobody to impress or make proud, so she put as little effort in as it took to get by.

I'm gonna be a star
And people will crane necks
To get a glimpse of me
And see if I am having sex

In studying my moves
They try to understand
Why I am so unlike the singers
In the other bands

Maya craved Josh's hands on her body. It made her feel alive, and she didn't care who saw them. Josh wanted notoriety on stage- Maya'd take it any way she could.

I'm such a mystery
As anyone can see
There isn't anybody else
Exactly quite like me

And when it's party time
Like 1999
I'll party by myself
Because I'm such a special guy

Maya was one in a million, that's what Josh had always said. She stood out in a crowd and in the end he just couldn't keep up. He loved music, but hated the attention it brought him. He'd tried pretending it didn't bother him, it wasn't rock and roll to get bothered, but he was no match for her.

I'm a troublemaker
Never been a faker
Doing things my own way
And never giving up

I'm a troublemaker
Not a double taker
I don't have the patience
To keep it on the up

In the end they were just too different. He did things his way, she did things her way. She didn't have the patience to keep it on the up, and he wouldn't let her drag him down.
