Searching myself for the last peices of me before I turn out to what everyone wants me to be
I'm losing myself running out of time
No wonder I have growing up on my mind
Why should I grow up and throw this all away?
Why keep working and working we all end up the same way?
All happy and smiles is what I used to be
Now look at what the world has done to me
It tore me appart, shredding me to bits
Spitting me out with all the other once hopefull kids
I look ahead at the results
I watch all of the adults
Is that what will happen to me?
All the same with way to much reality
What is your biggest fear?
One of mine is to look like that old guy over there
Just some old guy sitting all alone
Pretending to talk to someone on the phone
If I ever get that way I'll kill myself
If I don't have the strength I'll have someone else
First you're a kid having fun
Then you're a teen trying to please everyone
Then you're an adult with the same old routine
Then you're six feet underground if you know what I mean
I'm saying this now but I know it won't last
I can't keep running what's past is past
My life as I know it will soon be gone
What I now think is right I will then think is wrong
I'll forget what's like to be 14
Foget how I realized everything's just a dream
But then I'll find, I'll find this song
And laugh out loud as I read along
I'll laugh at how stupid I was
At how young and nieve I was
But does any of this matter anyway?
None of this matters...
Not even this stupid song.
