5 Seconds Of Summer – 18 lyrics

I wish that I was eighteen
To do all the things
You read in a magazine
I’m not saying I want to be Charlie Sheen

She’s just a little bit older
But I want to get to know her
She said it’s already over

So tell me what else can I do?
I bought my fake ID for you

She told me to meet her there
I can’t afford the bus fare
I’m not old enough for her
I’m just waiting ‘til I’m eighteen

I think she wants to get with me
But she’s got a job in the city
Says that she’s always too busy

She’s got a naughty tattoo
In a place that I want to get to
But my mom still drives me to school

So tell me what else can I do?
I bought my fake ID for you

She told me to meet her there
I can’t afford the bus fare
I’m not old enough for her
I’m just waiting ‘til 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 ‘til I’m eighteen

In my bedroom thinking of her
Her 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

She told me to meet her there
I can’t afford the bus fare
I’m not old enough for her
I’m just waiting ‘til 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 ‘til 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.
