Don’t be sixteen, a girl in love with dreams; the past teaches that dreams too often don’t come true

 

Don’t be sixteen, stupidly bewitched by lights

 

Those lights will make you blind; forget your senses, lose your mind

 

Don’t be sixteen, it’s barely even legal; nothing you do can change the fact that they see a child

 

No screams, no fights, no reasons; no way to run straight out

Of your skin, constraining, young…clothed in chains of doubt

 

Don’t be sixteen, a girl in the USA; you’ll be a slut, a pregnant whore, a victim of your day

 

Don’t be sixteen, a rebellious tramp, who curses the mass of fools; chasing always a bigger sky, and breaking all the rules

 

Don’t be sixteen, in past or present; it’s such a lonely thing

They’ll leave you stranded on the docks, beside a sewage sea

 

Don’t be sixteen without a care; without a reason why

 

Don’t be sixteen, in love with dreams…

 

They’ll only make you cry
