quater century new lyrics – caroline’s spine

you see the posters up around my room
and you ask me if i’m going to get up soon
and i say i think i’m fine here today

i know you wonder about the friends i run with
and i know you rifle through my room when i’m out
you’ll never find out what i’m about

but i hear you no matter what you think
because i know there is good in all your preaching
what i am i got from you
but you need to learn how to listen to me

i won’t grow because life can be so cold
i’m going to live in my dreams
i’ll die to see them through
i don’t want to wake up a quarter century older
wanting to be a quarter century new
quarter century new

did my time
i got through school
left it all and made my rules that day
the day i got away

different time i’m a different person
and i grew into the look you thought was a curse for so long
ill always be a little to far gone

but i hear you no matter what you think
because i know there is good in all your preaching
what i am i got from you
but you need to learn how to listen to me

i won’t grow because life can be so cold
i’m going to live in my dreams
even if i die to see them through
i don’t want to wake up a quarter century older
no wanting to be a quarter century new
quarter century new
