lyrics

I’m six years old, still playing dress up, still crying when I get hurt
My mind is like a whirlwind and my hands are smeared with dirt
Already I have left behind the home I used to know
I’m six years old, still young enough to like the feel of snow

4…3…2…1

Wake me up when it’s over
When you’ve kicked the box out from under me
Let me know when I’m older
I don’t like seeing life fly away from me
Wake me up when I’m 18
Will I know what I’m doing then?
Can I keep the years from tumbling?
I wish I were six again

I’m ten years old, and once again, I’m moving father away
From the friends I’ve known and the life I’ve grown, but still I guess it’s okay
I still like play-pretending, but it’s different than before
I’m still young enough to think that I’m not young anymore

4…3…2…1

Wake me up when it’s over
When you’ve kicked the box out from under me
Let me know when I’m older
I don’t like seeing life fly away from me
Wake me up when I’m 18
Will I know what I’m doing then?
Can I keep the years from tumbling?
I wish I were ten again

I’m fourteen now, and well, I guess, I’m doing pretty well
I don’t like taking showers, I think teenage boys are hell
I’m desperate to get away from the life I’ve just begun
I’m still young enough to think that being older must be fun

4…3…2…1

Wake me up when it’s over
When you’ve kicked the box out from under me
Let me know when I’m older
I don’t like seeing life fly away from me
Wake me up when I’m 18
Will I know what I’m doing then?
Can I keep the years from tumbling?
I’ll never be fourteen again
I’ll never be sixteen again
I’m never be eighteen again
I’ll never be young again

4…3…2…1
