I wish we were older
I wish we were older
I wish we were older

Keep your body moving, girl
The beat is bumpin'
Go ahead and let them talk
Their words mean nothin'

I know you're scared
But don't leave this place
Just turn around
And let me see your face
And now you're cryin' and you hold me
And you whisper in my ear

Whoa-e, whoa-e, oh-oh
Oh-we, oh-we, oh-oh
Whoa-e, whoa-e, oh-oh
I wish we were older

Whoa-e, oh-we, oh-oh
Oh-we, oh-we, oh-oh
Whoa-e, whoa-e, oh-oh
I wish we were older
I wish we were older

Tonight we'll touch
And they won't know
I know you're dyin'
To take off your clothes

Just trust in me
I'll never run away
You kiss my lips
And you taste my pain
And while I'm pushin' and I'm movin'
Somehow you manage to say

Whoa-e, whoa-e, oh-oh
Oh-we, oh-we, oh-oh
Whoa-e, whoa-e, oh-oh
I wish we were older

Whoa-e, oh-we, oh-oh
Oh-we, oh-we, oh-oh
Whoa-e, whoa-e, oh-oh
I wish we were older

Just take my hand
I'll never let go
Just take my hand
I'll never let go

Just take my hand
(I love you and I hate you)
I'll never let go
(Now I'm dyin' and I'm cryin')

Just take my hand
(But I kiss you and I hold you)
I'll never
(And you hold me closer)
(You scream at me and say)

Whoa-e, whoa-e, oh-oh
Oh-we, oh-we, oh-oh
Whoa-e, whoa-e, oh-oh
I wish we were older

Whoa-e, oh-we, oh-oh
Oh-we, oh-we, oh-oh
Whoa-e, whoa-e, oh-oh
I wish we were older

And don't cry now
And don't cry now
