The Vandals – Fourteen lyrics

I've watched you grow for all these years
And shamefully admit
I've loved to watch you blossom and it's awful hard to quit
Feeling these feelings stirring up inside of me

You nearly are a woman now and in a couple years
All the rules and boundaries will slowly disappear
Wait now my child until you get a little older
Every new sunrise brings your heart a little closer to me

But I can't make love to you
Because you're fourteen
Just a peck on the cheek
As I'm counting the weeks go by

We can't make love together
Because you're fourteen years old
And the trust of your mom that we're not doing wrong
I just can't betray, today

Just an ounce of patience we can still do things we like
I watch you eat an ice cream cone
And watch you ride your bike
Patiently longing for that future day of truth

I want to hug and kiss you nearly every time I see you
But I don't want the neighborhood to get the wrong idea
There'll come a day when love like ours is not a crime
Just give it time

But I can't make love to you
Because you're fourteen
Just a hug and a sigh
From a law abiding guy tonight

We can't make love together
Because you're fourteen years old
And the trust of your mom that we're not doing wrong
I just can't betray, today

Oh no I can't make love to you
Because you're fourteen
But Just a peck on the cheek
As I'm counting the weeks go by

We can't make love together
Because you're fourteen years old
And the trust of your mom that we're not doing wrong
I just can't betray, today
