When I was younger I used to wait anticipate
Mark my calendar on the release date
So I�d be the first to hear the brilliant things you�d say
I�d skip luch for a week
Save up all my money To be the first kid on the block to own your brand new CD
Open your eyes open your eyes open your eyes
Who�s gonna show me how to laugh
Open your mouth open your mouth open your mouth
Who�s gonna show me how to
Who�s going to show me how to laugh?
Who�s going to jerk tears from my eyes
I�ve memorized every last word and every note
So now who�s going to write the songs
I wish the songs I always wish I wrote that song
So did you think you didn�t matter anymore
That you weren�t changing people�s lives
Well you�re wrong Such poignant words from you
I heard Thoughts and emotions that were worth so much more than a cheap slogan on a t-shirt
