Old Enough

 

No one talks about the shotgun wedding

Murder victims or the bed youíre wetting

In between the ups and downs

Alcoholic bullet rounds

Care a lot, but donít say much about hopes and dreams and shames you clutch

Look at you, so frustrated

Look at all the dreams you traded

You thought you had resuscitated

Everyone you thought you hated

 

You can believe it now

You can believe it now

Youíre old enough

Youíre old enough

 

Give a little to the starship mother

In one ear and out the other

Nothing comforts in the night

Living shadow candle light

Laugh a lot when youíre in trouble

Thankful for a body double

Look at you, intoxicated

Cryiní while your dreams are faded

All the ones that you evaded

Youíre the only one you hated

 

You can believe it now

You can believe it now

Youíre old enough

Youíre old enough

 

Itís a long way

Such a long way

Prison walls make for lousy lays

Itís a long way

Such a long way

 

You can believe it now

You can believe it now

Youíre old enough

Youíre old enough
