Dan Shepherd – Watching Young Faces Look Old lyrics

[Verse]
Setting in circles with empty friends, passing round rolled cigarettes
Thinking a people we could have been, and people we’d rather forget
Plucking out matches and chuck them in the fire watching their furry unfold
Dreaming some dreams with the oldest desires and watching young faces look old

[Chorus]
Please tell me what I’m doing here, I wanna go home
Ant nothing going for me here, I wanna be alone
Please tell me what I’m doing here, feeling out of place
Or show me one spark of fun on anyone’s face

[Verse]
Watching the flames as the fire grow higher, haven’t had any fun yet
Joey’s depressed so he gets himself wired, hoping for things he can’t get
Jimmies been stressed so he chugs a whole beer, I’m watching the tension unwind
Sandy is crying by she don’t shed one tear, She hides it away in their mind

[Chorus]
Please tell me what I’m doing here, I wanna go home
Ant nothing going for me here, I wanna be alone
Please tell me what I’m doing here, feeling out of place
Or show me one spark of fun on anyone’s face

[Verse]
Little sister seen love she wants it she flirts, but isn’t she old enough yet
Your playing with fire you’ll get your feelings hurt, but is it my place to protect
The night drags along with the moon at its full, thinking I should have stayed home
I toasted my mind but I’m keeping my cool, and freezing myself to the bone.

[Chorus]
Please tell me what I’m doing here, I wanna go home
Ant nothing going for me here, I wanna be alone
Please tell me what I’m doing here, feeling out of place
Or show me one spark of fun on anyone’s face
