George Alice – Teenager Lyrics

Teenager Lyrics – George Alice

When my head’s in the deep end
I’m not really there
When I have trouble sleeping
I do it all again
The second it hits 9
I’ll act like everything is fine

Sometimes this is not for me
Being told where to go and who to be
At fifteen I should try and be me
But you don’t really care
So I…

Put my best behaviour on like a costume that you love
You tell me who to be, but I’ll never learn a thing
I’ll write it down on paper
I’m just a fucking teenager

You say my mind is precious, take the time to fix it
Pile on all the bullshit then tell me I’m important
I’m doing you a favour
I’m only a teenager

I need some guidance
But all your giving me
Are terrible solutions
Even more confusion
Like I’m barely human
Treat me like I’m human

Pre-Chorus:
‘Cause sometimes this is not for me
Being told where to go and who to be
At fifteen I should try and be me
But you don’t really care
So I…

Put my best behaviour on like a costume that you love
You tell me who to be, but I’ll never learn a thing
I’ll write it down on paper
I’m just a fucking teenager

You say my mind is precious, take the time to fix it
Pile on all the bullshit then tell me I’m important
I’m doing you a favour
I’m only a teenager
