"Teenagers" as written by and Hayley Nichole Williams....
I'm gonna go on living like I never met you and it'll feel wrong at first but I think I can forget you. Ignore the fact that we sleep no more than three feet apart. I feel you now, you're all around me, underneath me. You're all around me, underneath me.

Well how was I to know that what we carved in stone would be so temporary. Well how was I to know that my first crack at love would not be the last, won't be the last.

It's in the air now, bitter tears and broken hearts. We're teenagers, we count the years, we think we're smart but we're not, we don't know anything.

So don't ask me where I'll go cause frankly I don't know and I don't give a shit. Why must we all make sense? And I just won't make sense. For once I'm just gonna live, I'm just gonna live.

Teenagers, we don't know anything. Teenagers, we don't know anything.

Well how was I to know that what we carved in stone would be so temporary. Why must we all make sense, oh I just won't make sense. For once I'm just gonna live. I'm just gonna live.

    General Commenti love this song
    i seriously cannot stop listening to it :)

    and it's

    "So don't ask me where I'll go cause frankly I don't know and I don't give a shit
    Why must we all make sense of what just won't make sense
    For once I'm just gonna live, I'm just gonna live"

    but yeah
    i think this song is just about someone who broke up with their gf/bf and is trying to get over them without caring about the future
    well that's what i think :)

    Song MeaningOh my god, it's so obvious who she wrote it for. Like, how does she manage to mention him in every single song she's ever written?

    General CommentShe says it in the chorus "We're teenagers, we dont know anything" and that is exactly what this song is about. Kids who believe they are in love and that its going to last forever; but as you grow up you learn and you realize that you don't know anything.
