So now listen carefully,
Well here's the words for you to read,
Well I just wish you'd believe in me,
And I know how hard this might be,
Remember I'm just seventeen,
I want to live my dream,

There's no use in giving up this time,
The time we spent talking about our future,
And how will it end,
So this is how I'll live my life,
Are you content?
Could you just pretend?

And now I've had enough,
My story of growing up,
Have you had enough of me?

And I'm not giving in,
When will this dream begin?
And how will the story end?
Will it leave me broken?

There's no use in giving up this time,
The time we spent talking about our future,
And how will it end,
So this is how I'll live my life,
Are you content?
Could you just pretend?

And now I've had enough,
My story of growing up,
Have you had enough of me?

Have you had enough?
My story of growing up
Have you had enough? we'll see,

    General CommentThis song is great. Prolly my second favorite song by them. I'm surprised no one commented on it yet.

    I think this song is about the lead singer growing up (obviously) and how he's unsure about his future and where his life is going. I think it also might be like a letter to his parents too looking for approval.

    General Commenti think this song is about like him talking to his girl. basically asking, are you going to be a part of my future? are you ok with that? and saying that either way he is going to live it whether your in it or not
