Don't talk like
Like you're nineteen
You're thirty-five
If you're a day don't act like
Like you're nineteen
Everyone is waiting

Haven't I done enough today
Haven't I done enough this time

Haven't I done enough today
Haven't I done enough

Don't stop here she said
Don't say that
A part of me is dead
Numb just like a
Fallen limb
Like what you left behind

There's a part of me
That works just like a child
There's a part of me
That's you

    General CommentI love this song so much...I like how there are words in here that no other song has...It reminds me of how once I tried to make up a song about a refridgerator because everything lacks creativity these days..

    General CommentI love this song, and whenever I hear
    "Don't talk like
    Like you're nineteen
    You're thirty-five"

    I cant help but think of my aunt, she's 50 and is still trying to be that popular girl that everyone knows.

    But my friend interprets that line as "Grow up already"

    General CommentI think this song is about dealing with a friend who isn't really meeting your expectations for maturity, and being a bit annoyed at them. Basically, this song is an internal debate about trying to tell someone that you don't want to be friends with someone so immature.
