We were only 16 by the American dreams
Our 9 to 5 jobs were quite embarrassing
But we were working with the thought of what we got
And not the thought of what we're not
Our voices shook the ground with how often we fought

Maybe if I was worth a minute of your attention
We wouldn't be struggling through this divine intervention
But I could never fit in with all the problems you were sensing
I never really cheated, I just thought I should mention

Baby doll, you think you're cunning and stunning
And oh my, oh my God
Oh my God (x2)
You're not God [chuckles]

    General CommentI could be wrong but

    "We were only 16 by the American dreams
    Our 9 to 5 jobs were quite a barren scene"

    should be

    "We were only 16 we're brought American dreams
    Our 9 to 5 jobs were quite embarrassing"



    annndddd

    "But I could never fit in with all the (?) you were sensing"

    is

    "But I could never fit in with all the problems you were sensing"

    General CommentWe were only 16 BUT by the American dreams
    Our 9 to 5 jobs were quite embarrassing
    But we were working with the thought of what we got
    And not the thought of what we're not
    Our voices shook the ground with how often we fought

    Maybe if I was worth a minute of your attention
    We wouldn't be struggling through this divine intervention
    But I could never fit in TO all the problems you were sensing
    I never really cheated, I just thought I should mention

    Baby doll, you think you're cunning and stunning
    And oh my, oh my God
    Oh my God (x2)
    You're not God [chuckles]
