Listen to them fight
Hear your mother cry
Weekend at your dad's
They don't know what they do to you
Teenager


Wrap yourself in black
Listen to The Cure
Love-line wont call back
They don't know
They don't care
They don't see
But I do


And if it feels good do it
Cause if it tastes fine drink
Well, there's a range of possibilities to find
Teenager, teenager


No one knows your name
No one hears your cry
Fall in with the fringe
Cause they know what you're going through
They do


And if it feels good do it
Cause if it tastes fine drink
Well, there's a range of possibilities to find
Teenager, teenager


No one's wrong
No one's right
It comes down on you
I have found your life
Inside mine


Hear your mother cry
Fade into the night
And when they ask you why
They won't know
They won't feel
They won't see
But you will


And if it feels good do it
Cause if it tastes fine drink
Well, there's a range of possibilities to find
Teenager, teenager

    I can really relate to this song. My parents are going through a divorce and I hear my mother crying in her room at night. And sometimes I feel like no one can see me and nobody cares.

    this song is so awesome because it's so cliche'd but it's so true for a lot of people...see, it's cliche'd, but only Better Than Ezra thought to write about it, that makes it unique. I love these guys....

    Most of this song is the life of almost every kid I knew in high school. Part of it was the dream of every kid I knew: They don't care, But I do. Everyone wants to be understood. I thank God I'm not a teenager anymore.

    This song has the coolest chord progression of any song.

    Yep, average teenager alright... that feeling that nobody understands or cares leads to the lyrics, "They don't know/They don't care/They don't see." And today, society is obsessed with throwing alcohol down young people's throats, anything to make a buck. So they capitalize on the slogan, "If it feels good do it."
