Sure it's a gas
Stuck in an English class
Can't even dream
So it's hard to accept that all you're given
When you're sitting there
Staring at the ceiling
Wishing you were so very far from here
When you're 13
What fors and whys
If he's got it why can't I
You're my queen
And I dream about you when I'm in my bed
And if all of these things are like they said
Then I'd rather be in another scene
When I'm 14
Just not fair
Not getting anywhere
Hard as a stone
They expect us to make it out alone
And they scream at us when we're on the phone
And they lecture us all about routine
When you're 15
Get out of here
You're crowding my tender years
Don't say you see
Cause you've forgotten what's it like to be
And I'm sure that it's changed to some degree
Cries advice ain't never as it seemed
When you're 16
Four years go
You've fallen before you know
You're now of age
And you're thrown in a different cage
And you're faced with another blank page
And I know I don't need to be told

    General CommentI just turned 20 so I can relate to this song and being 'face with another blank page.' I love this song because it just speaks the truth about all of the different stages of growing up.

    General Commentyeh i agree with violetzebras its about growing up and all the things we go through as we grow up and that when you're 20 you might not have any ideas on what you want to do...'faced with another blank page' or maybe it means you have to make your life the way you want it.
