Running out of time again
Where did you go wrong this time?
When your problems overwhelm you
Go get drunk it's party time
Take a quaalude, relax your mind
Relax your body too!
Run from problems but
You'll never get away
No one loves you, and you
Wonder why?

Sitting there with your mouth full of beer
Your eyes are glazed, your face is red
Who's gonna pick you up and use you for tonight?

And when you're on the streets
With a needle in your arm
Selling your body for another fix

Who's gonna pick you up and take you home with them tonight? Not me!
Running out of breath again you're an Old Maid, but you're only 15
You're losing your little girl's charm
Cry all night but you'll never get it back
Don't be afraid, it's not too late
Save yourself, I need you here
Wearing off, wearing out
I can't think about this cause it makes me sick

    General CommentPretty easy to understand. Bout a girl with emotional problems, probably from uninterested parents, who turns to drugs and prostitution for cash. The girl is quickly losing her innocence "you're an old maid, you're only 15" and he wants to save her.

    General CommentThis was the first song I ever heard by the Descendents, and one of the first punk songs I ever heard, period. It completely changed the way I thought about music.

    General Commentanother killer song by a strong band

    Simple explanation for the song, as stated by the posters above. It makes me wonder if Milo ever knew anyone like this, after all, a lot of the Descendents songs deal very specifically with issues and themes that young people face-which one of the many reasons why they've become such an influential punk band.

    General CommentI heard this song the other day for the first time in a while. And I realized I know far too many 15 year old maids.

    General Commentthis song really means a lot to me because a really good friend of mine is exactly like the girl in the song. she runs away from life through alcohol and now she's currently a heroin addict, doing tricks to get cash for her dope. I wish I save her cause I know what its like to be drug addict but the only thing I can do is wait for her to come to me. great song. great album. great band.
