my lyricsbox
Sleep with all the lights on
You're not so happy, you're not secure
And you're dying to look cute in your blue jeans
But you're plastic just like everyone
Just like everyone
And that face you paint is pressed
Impressing most of us as permanent
And I'd like to see you undone
College night will draw the crowds
Dorms unload and you're heading out
Here is your moment to shine

Making up a history
It's nothing from the life you lead
But man, will they buy all your lines?

Sleep with all the sheets off
Baring your mattress, baring your soul
And you're dying to look smooth with your tattoos
But you're searching just like everyone, could be anyone
And those friends that you have are the best
Impressing most of us as permanent
And I'd like to see you undone

Youth's the most unfaithful mistress
Still we forge ahead to miss her
Rushing our moment to shine

Making up a history
It's nothing from the life you lead
But man, will they buy all your lines?

We're not twenty-one
But the sooner we are
The sooner the fun will begin
So get out your fake eyelashes
And fake I.D.'s,
And real disasters ensue
It's cool to take these chances
It's cool to fake romances
And grow up fast, and grow up fast
And grow up fast, and grow up fast
This song is from the album "The Swiss Army Romance" and "MTV Unplugged".
