Young Like That

July 17, 2017

[Verse 1]
She leaves home at 9:03,
walking on the concrete 
She forgot her coat at home 
The wind is cold, the air is thick, the night is slow 
Walks past the streets and onto the road 

[Verse 2]
Pack of cigarettes she holds,
Eyelids painted gold 
She wears her favourite party dress 
She walks in, takes a seat, takes a breath 
Big voices speak too loud in her head 

[Chorus]
Tears of honey run down her cheeks 
But she don’t mind ‘cause it tastes so sweet 
She don’t mind at all 
She don’t mind at all 
She likes the way cars go fast 
But don’t we all when we’re young like that 
She don’t mind at all 
She don’t mind at all 

[Verse]
The night doesn’t stop there,
Red ribbons in her hair 
She doesn’t want to walk alone 
Broken hearts, beaten lungs, brittle bones 
Her mother asks, “Will she come home?” 

Her mother asks, “Will she come home?” 

[Chorus] 
Tears of honey run down her cheeks 
But she don’t mind ‘cause it tastes so sweet 
She don’t mind at all 
She don’t mind at all 
She likes the way cars go fast 
But don’t we all when we’re young like that 
She don’t mind at all 
She don’t mind at all 
This song was written for a friend, I would like to share her story. I wanted this song to be about how teenagers sometimes struggle to find their own identity, and that it can be pretty scary
