about

spread love, not hate - peace

lyrics

V1:
Teenage girls hated by the whole world
Because they love a popstar or a TV show or a slang word
They should call high school a masquerade
Because everyone is so afraid that they're fake
There's a boy I know who says he's fine
But when you get him alone he's broken on the inside
Trying to fit in is so complicated
And Adults don't remember how they felt in September

Chorus:
They say, You're only 17
Life's too short the grass is green
But they don't see what I have seen
Teenagers can be so mean

V2:
Next time you talk about another girl
Maybe you should figure out what it's like to live in her world
Seems to be a problem everyone ignores
Because the kids who need to scream and shout are silent all the more
So many kids call the hallway hell
So many kids can;t break out of their shell
Can't escape from the guilded age of broken hearts and football games

(chorus)

Bridge:
Yes we're only 17 look how messed up our world can be
Kids would rather die than be who they are
And we let it get this far
Why do kids bring guns to school?
Why are things so complicated?
Beautiful lives are devastated
Because of the status quo
And nobody seems to know

Chorus:
They say, you're only 17no one takes us seriously
They don't see what I have seen, teenagers can be so mean
And love is really all we need
Affection, attention a sense of direction
Then maybe one day this world will see us being simply 17
