She's had to peel me off the pavement
Trying to insinuate sometimes I'm in danger of going too far
Said would I like to go for tea and toast?
Get your hand off my thigh
In the car she turned to me and said

You're not nineteen forever, pull yourselves together
I know it seems strange but things they change
Older woman and a younger man
Both of them doing all they can

Trying to get your attention all night long
Asked you once, I asked you twice, asked you four times
If you'd like to dance to that song front crawled the crowd down the stairs and then I followed you out in the rain
Nowhere to be found, never mind
You'll probably never look that pretty again

You're not nineteen forever pull yourselves together
I know it seems strange but things they change
Older woman and ever so slightly younger man
God bless the band, they're doing all they can

You're not nineteen forever pull yourselves together
I know it seems strange but things they change
Older woman and ever so slightly younger man
God bless the band, they're doing all they can

Your not 19 forever
Your not 19 forever
Your not 19 forever
It's not big your definitely not clever

    Such an awesome song. I'm surprised this song has been reclaimed more than it should have been such a let down that not everyone knows this song! The meaning of the song is that they should try and seize the opportunity at whatever stage you are at in your life because moments that you lose are unfortunately never there for you to retrieve.

    It means your only nineteen for a year, starting from your nineteenth birthday, and ending the day before your twentieth birthday.
