Alex Valentine - Past Adolescence

lyrics

Good morning
7AM again
You're going back to school
With all your fake fucking friends
They don't wait for you
But you take it on the chin
So button up your ill-fitting shirt and let your Green Day albums carry you in

I'm writing now to tell you that you're still only 15
You're only getting started and there's much more you can be
You're not something to walk on and you are not alone
It's all gonna be OK when you get back home

And when they push you
And when they call you names
Don't go blaming yourself
You're perfectly OK
It's OK to be angry
Your anger's justified
It's only gonna make you stronger with the passage of time

I'm writing now to tell you that you're still only 15
You're only getting started and there's much more you can be
You're not something to walk on and you are not alone
It's all gonna be ok when you get back home

And when you dress up
Question your sanity
Asking yourself
What's fucking wrong with me
It's just the first step
To the woman you want to be
Do you remember
You've seen her in a dream

I want you to know
That dream it does come true
If you could see me now
You'd never believe it's you

I'm writing now to tell you that you're still only 15
And everything is changing here in 2017
And though there will be laughing and though there will be names
I need you to believe that you're gonna be OK
