20 years today
his eyes are glued on his reflection
where has it gone?
the time goes by so fast
he'll sit and listen to
the saddest songs and wonder
where it all went wrong or
where it all went right

a smile is all he has to count on...

as he falls asleep
with one eye open
waiting for their world to creep
up on him
hey hey
he wants to stop it now
before
it kills him
he reads the same sentence over
and once again
it just won't make much sense at all

walking a thin line
asking questions that have no answers
turning out the lights
and slipping into bed
seems so much
better than anything else
on these cold college nights
childhood seems like a blur

as he falls asleep
with one eye open
waiting for their world to creep
up on him
hey hey
he wants to stop it now
before
it kills him
he reads the same sentence over
and once again
it just won't make much sense at all

between commercials
best friends left to melt away in memories
of better days
say the words that make him cry
he needs them to know he's still alive
cause he's slipping away into adulthood, yeah
and falling far from what he was
its all been blasted away
and he wants back into his world he loves so much

as he falls asleep
with one eye open
waiting for their world to creep
up on him
hey hey
he wants to stop it now
before
it kills him
he reads the same sentence over
and once again
it just won't make much sense
no, it just won't make much sense
it just won't make much sense at all
just won't make much sense at all
it just won't, it just won't
