"Where The Story Ends" as written by and Sylvia Bennet Smith David Lindsey....
I just want you to listen
Troubled minds of the troubled times
Keep yourself together
Don't listen to other peeps
Cause a lot can happen on the streets
And peer pressure is a killer so listen to there wide
Words that I preach, it ain't safe out there
I know this from experience, 'cause this is serious
And that's how lives get messed up, I took this time to
Just eight bars to explain to the kids what's up

You're livin' in dangerous minds
Dangerous times, thug life
You're growing up on the street
All that crime, I've been there before
I've been through it, I realize the pain, I'm drawn into it
It feels terrible, when you're on another level
To the rest of them, trainers, clothes
You're not in with the trend
It's just a teenage beef that's bothering you
It's just a phase in life you'll have to go through

You know I never will amount to you
But is it pain you gotta put me through
You know I never will live up to you
And all that you do
You never tell your enemies from friends, and life
Will never be the same again
You never know where the story ends
That's right my friend
That's where the story ends

I hear these things again and again and again
Dress to impress for a friend, all it does
Everytime I hear will it ever stop
It just sends me round the bend
It ain't easy to be a teenager
I should know it puts your life in danger
Do you ever really think that it will stop
All the muggings and the bullies and weapons I think not

I can sit and write lyrics all day
But my teenage problems never fade away
My fashion sense never lead astray
My smell, my phone is what portrays
Perceive, a brethren or a chief, educated or naive
My popularity brings, friends and enemies

You know I never will amount to you
But is it pain you gotta put me through
You know I never will live up to you
And all that you do
You never tell your enemies from friends
And life will never be the same again
You never know where the story ends
That's right my friend
That's where the story ends

Teenage life you've gotta deal with it somehow
No point in complaining, gotta live with it somehow
Unfair job but you're still with it somehow
It ain't fair but you've gotta get through it somehow
All the teenagers that have had enough
That are tired of scuffs and just want love
Just take some time unleash your mind and you will find it somehow

What's wrong kid could be making it
Teenager in trouble and you're hatin' it, you wanna leave
The crowd your with, lead your own life
But I know you're scared of it
In a week there's 7 days 168 hours and a million ways
Everyday's different but your life will change, trust me
It will never stay the same again

You know I never will amount to you
But is it pain you gotta put me through
You know I never will live up to you
And all that you do
You never tell your enemies from friends
And life will never be the same again
You never know where the story ends
That's right my friend
That's where the story ends

Growing up seems so hard when you're young
You never wanna listen always wanna have fun
Try to make things right but it soon's wrong
People say the best years come when you're young
You never listen to what people say
Always wanna try and do things in your own way
Never think straight, always play life as a game
And in the end it's another life thrown away

Teenage troubles, thoughts that run through your head
Trying to impress cause of what your mates said
Wanna get in the crowd, you ain't got the clothes
So you're out for a teenager that's what life's about
The pressure of the drugs violence and racism that faces them
It's a part of life, don't ruin it for yourself
Or you might end up by yourself

You think about back in the day
Of what you could have had but you threw it away
To be the top boy on the street
To be the boy everybody wanted to be, can't you see

You know I never will amount to you
But is it pain you gotta put me through
You know I never will live up to you
And all that you do
You never tell your enemies from friends, and life
Will never be the same again
You never know where the story ends
That's right my friend
That's where the story ends

    General CommentOh yeah, being a teenager sucks. It's so hard. I swear, once I even got a spot. Jesus, it was a living fucking nightmare.

    General CommentThe lyrics are a bit melodramatic, but so are teenagers. I think hastalavictoria is being a little harsh. Sure, I find it difficult to take the song seriously, because my teenage years are so far behind me, but I think if I was 15 again, I'd really identify with this. And I do enjoy listening to it :)
