and take your time getting ready
it's a one way road to home
i can't find any of my old friends
so tell me, where did they all go
and we can live with my parents
it's not much but it's a start
if this bump in the road was a t.v. series
then i would be the star
i would be the brightest

kid without a clue
making up the rules as i go along
'cause they make it seem so easy on t.v.
believe me, don't try this at home
now back to my reality show

shots fired, we blew a tire out
just as it started to rain
yeah, the backseat's a dream
when you're just 18
but the dreams take a backseat so fast
i still look back and wonder

i'm sorry life isn't perfect
but i promise we won't starve
in a small dark apartment
with big bright hearts

    General CommentSounds like the girl got pregnant, and they have to deal with it. And how on TV they always show the situations turning out great, but it really isn't what you expect, so don't make the mistake, because it will destroy your dreams.

    General CommentNo its about TV stuff like braniac and people who have tried themselves, and telling people not to try it at home.
