Keep your body movin', girl,
The beat is thumpin',
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 crying,
And you hold me,
And you whisper in my ear...

Whoa-e, oh-we, oh-oh,
Oh-we, oh-we, oh-oh,
Whoa-e, oh-we, oh-oh,
I wish we were older,
Whoa-e, oh-we, oh-oh,
Oh-we, oh-we, oh-oh,
Whoa-e, oh-ew, 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 dying,
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 pushing and I'm moving
Somehow you manage to say...

Whoa-e, oh-we, oh-oh,
Oh-we, oh-we, oh-oh,
Whoa-e, oh-we, oh-oh,
I wish we were older,
Whoa-e, oh-we, oh-oh,
Oh-we, oh-we, oh-oh,
Whoa-e, oh-we, 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,
(I love you and I need you)
Just take my hand,
(Now we're dying and we're crying)
I'll never let go,
(But I kiss you and I touch you)
Just take my hand,
(And you hold me close)
I'll never...
(You scream at me and say)

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

And don't cry now,
And don't cry now.

    ummm...i'm kinda not to sure about this and if you dont agree thats fine. well when teenagers have underage sex they are thought bad of ("go ahead and let them talk, their words mean nothing") they are not gonna let peoples opinions get in the way of their relationship and life.
    ummm... in the song i think she falls pregnant and wants to commit suicide (i noe your scared, but dont leave this place, now turn around and let me see your face, and now your crying,and you hold me and you whisper i my ear...i wish we were older) girl is sure she is doing the wrong thing by having underage sex with the one she loves(And while i'm pushing and I'm moving Somehow you manage to say... i wish we were older) idk thats just what comes to my head when i think about the song. hope it helped =]
