I Fight Dragons – Eighteen lyrics

[Verse:]
Eighteen at a traffic light, I got nowhere to be on a Friday night
I got it all, I got nothing
The summer's here and I'm finally free
I got no work to do and no-one to see
I got it all, I got nothing
Eighteen is a funny age, you got so many dreams and an empty page
I got it all, because I got nothing

[Chorus:]
Everybody knows what I should do
Everybody works so I should too
How do I explain what feels so wrong?
Dealing with the shame of knowing you don't belong
So you try to smile and hope
That you won't always be alone with your dreams
Living in between
Eighteen

[Verse 2:]
Eighteen but I feel so old
Like a bright screen with a paper soul
I've seen it all, I've seen nothing
Eighteen with a car that drives
And a strange need just to feel alive
I've seen it all, I've seen nothing
Have you heard, it's a golden age
Go get your, golden view from your golden cage
I've seen it all, because I've seen nothing

[Chorus:]
Everybody knows what I should do
Everybody works so I should too
How do I explain what feels so wrong?
Dealing with the shame of knowing you don't belong
So you try to smile and hope
That you won't always be alone with your dreams
Living in between
Eighteen
Everybody does just what they're told
Everybody buys just what they're sold
How do I escape what I can't see?
How do I replace the broken parts of me?
I know you try to smile and hope
That you won't always be alone with your dreams
Living in between
Eighteen
