if you were looking for a hand to hold y'know you were a long way off
if you were looking for conversations y'know you were a long way off
stop searching for more confusion
no one needs anymore of that
and no one cares what you've been doing
we're ten million identical brats
so ah ah ah ah ahhh
we all act the same
ah ah ah ah ahh
cus we all grew up on the same street
ah ah ahhh
we're packing in close together ah ah ahh
so you can really fele the hurt and reach out and touch my shirt
you don't have to be a pessimist
no no
mary graduates today and she doesn't know what to do
jeannie just wants a lover but they're all hidden away from view
oh later they'll claim these were the best days
and not remember how sad they really were
adulthood's a big surrender and it's so ah ah ah ah ahhh
celebrate your wealth ah ah ahhh
and don't get scared just yet ah ah ahh
you won't be any better with years ah ah ahh
you'll say- "ignorance was bliss"
and you'll think you know much more
but you won't know any more
i know it's hard to be an optimist
but just learn to be an optimist
you don't have to be a pessimist
no no
