I don't want to be some teenager who commits suicide
To think that to escape pain, death is where she should hide
Pain, it hurts, indeed it does, but death doesn't stop the anger
And so I'll live through it all so I won't be just another teenager.
I don't want to be some teenager who spits, screams, and cries
To think only of myself and ignore the hurt in others' eyes
We may not always get what we want but raging doesn't change peoples' minds
So I'll calm the raging storm and I won't be just a teenager this time.
I won't be another teenager who wants her boyfriend for sex
Who sees this as a point in life or sees it as a test
I won't end up pregnant and left with nothing more than shame
So I'll hold off 'till I'm married, because hormones can be tamed.
I won't be some teenager who drives really fast
I certainly won't be the one to take part in a fatal crash
Sure we love the fast lane, but is the excitement worth a grave?
I don't want to be some teenager with a stone that bares my name.
And I won't be some teenager who gives in to pressure and takes a hit
Won't be the one caught doing all of that dangerous stupid shit
I won't end up in prison for killing a friend just for weed
Because I won't be some teenager who sees drugs as a way to be free.
In the end I won't be the teenager you expect me to be
I'll wake up in the morning and I'll just be me.
