Everybody wants to be young and reckless
Sparkle, shine
Like a diamond necklace
Move from the crowd to the top of the guest list
Everybody wants to be young and reckless


And I know
You’re [out it?] for the first time
And I know
You never really turned out right
Sometimes you’re better off in disguise
Sometimes

And everybody knows it’s a great big lie
So d-d-d-don’t say
It’s all alright
And everybody goes when you say good-bye
You d-d-d-d-d-don’t look back
You don’t look back
Ever

hide it away, stashed under the mattress
High school mascot
Everybody practice
Everybody move now
Move to the exit
Everybody wants to be young and reckless

Does anybody know?
Is everything pretend?
Does anybody know?
Is this making sense?
The answer’s in the air
