5 Seconds Of Summer – 18 lyrics

[Verse 1]
I wish, that I was eighteen
Do all the things you read in the magazines.
I’m not sayin' I wanna be Charlie Sheen.
She’s just a little bit older
But, I want to get to know her.
But she says it’s already over.

[Pre-Chorus]
So tell me what else can I do?
I bought my fake ID for you.

[Chorus]
She told me to meet her there,
I can’t afford a bus fare.
I’m not old enough for her,
I’m just waiting till I’m eighteen.

[Verse 2]
I think she wants to get with me
But, she’s got a job in the city.
And says that she’s always too busy.
She’s got a naughty tattoo
In a place that I wanna get to
But, my mom still drives me to school.

[Pre-Chorus]
So tell me what else can I do?
I bought my fake ID for you.

[Chorus]
She told me to meet her there,
I can’t afford a bus fare.
I’m not old enough for her,
I’m just waiting till I’m eighteen.
You got me waiting in a queue
For a bar I can’t get into.
I’m not old enough for you,
I’m just waiting till I’m eighteen.

[Bridge]
In my bedroom thinking of ya,
Your pictures in my private folder.
I know one day that I will hold her.
I’ll make my move when I get older,
Make my move when I get older.

[Chorus]
She told me to meet her there,
I can’t afford a bus fare.
I’m not old enough for her,
I’m just waiting till I’m eighteen.
You got me waiting in a queue
For a bar I can’t get into.
I’m not old enough for you,
I’m just waiting till I’m eighteen.
I’m so sick of waiting until I’m eighteen.

    18 is about wanting to be 18, for whatever reason. In this case it's because of this older girl. The guy does all these things for the girl. He buys a fake ID. And wait outside a bar he can't get into. He's still a kid through, besides not being able to get a bar he doesn't have a car and can't afford to take the bus to meet her. His mom still drives him to school. In the end, even through he doesn't want to he waits until he's 18.
