I have some problems at home,
And I have some problems with being alone,
I get laughed at every single day,
I just wish everything would go away

I have no one to talk to,
That includes not being able to talk to you,
You say that you understand it all,
But if I live with your beliefs it will make me fall

Chorus:
You say you were my age once,
Well, that may be true,
But the truth is,
You don’t know,
You say you went through the same things,
Maybe they were similar,
But the truth is,
My problems are different,
You say you know,
But the truth is,
You don’t

My teachers fail me because of the way my hair falls over my face,
What do they expect; I can’t be some sort of amazing grace,
You told me that you understand how everything goes,
But sorry, the truth is you just don’t know

Chorus

I tried to tell you,
Things have changed since you were young,
I tried to tell you,
We teens no longer know how to have fun,
You never listen,
To the words that come out of my mouth,
You never listen,
And it makes me want to scream and shout

You say you were my age once,
Well, that may be true,
But the truth is,
You don’t know,
The truth is,
You don’t know

Chorus

Chorus
