Orla Gartland – Sixteen lyrics

And she was no beauty queen
She was in love at just sixteen
With an older boy who hardly knew her name
She would think of him and say
You will be mine some day
But her head was filled with things that could've been
And she was just sixteen

Her head was filled with fairydust and gold
She never did what she was told
But she knew what she wanted from a very young age
Didn't care about a job or give a damn about a wage

She just wanted him
And she wanted him for good
She would do whatever it took, whatever she could
And now she can't stop loving him she never meant to start
But what else can you expect from a foolish heart

And she was no beauty queen
She was in love at just sixteen
With an older boy who hardly knew her name
She would think of him and say
You will be mine some day
But her head was filled with things that could've been
And she was just sixteen

Age is but a number she would say and she'd believe
But four years is way too long to wear your heart on your sleeve
And she thought maybe it's time to move on, it's been too long romance is gone,
Sung is the song and now this feels all wrong
And in a world of advice she feels so small
Someone better tell this girl it's probably not love at all

And she was no beauty queen
She was in love at just sixteen
With an older boy who hardly knew her name
She would think of him and say
You will be mine some day
But her head was filled with things that could've been
And she was just sixteen

Oh no, here she goes again

And she got what she wanted when he returned her love
Everything was cosy he fit her like a glove
She always dreamt of things she never had though she knew that it was wrong
He blinked and she blinked and suddenly thirty years were gone
They remembered all the times that she

Was no beauty queen
She was in love at just sixteen
With an older boy who hardly knew her name
She would think of him and say
You will be mine some day
But her head was filled with things that could've been
And she was just sixteen
