You took a look around and there you saw
Everything you ever asked for.....
Then you woke up
And now another tortured day of seeing
Somebody else doing everything that you always wanted
Yet you're uninvited

Wake up, you should know better then that
Sit down, speak when you're spoken to
You're much too young to have opinions
I thought growing up was supposed to be fun

But this is such a Nightmare
Honey whatcha doing if you don't care
Then why you gotta go and ruin everything
Are you satisfied...so if i shut my eyes...
then maybe this will only be a nightmare

And now you think you thought you saw her there
With argyle knee-highs and contrasting colors in her hair
And now another tortured night of knowing
whispered words and candles glowing without you there....
life's so unfair

Wake up, know what you're fighting for
Time won't ease up on the timid
so stand up and run, you've got your gun
I thought growing up was supposed to be fun....

But this is such a Nightmare
Honey whatcha doing if you don't care
Then why you gotta go and ruin everything
Are you satisfied...so if i shut my eyes...
then maybe this will only be a nightmare

It's everything you ever asked for........(repeated)

But this is such a Nightmare
Honey whatcha doing if you don't care
Then why you gotta go and ruin everything
Are you satisfied...so if i shut my eyes...
then maybe this will only be a nightmare

if you don't care, then why you gotta go and ruin everything
and everyone's good time....but maybe this was all just in my mind.....
