Awkward Age

I should have known you were only just fifteen
You had a scowl like a Klingon beauty queen
Old enough to stand out but too young to stand with pride
So uncomfortable in your messed-up skin
And the cool parties never let you in
I can still relate to being left so high and dry
Don’t cry
You’re just at an awkward age

We’ll all be fine
Disgraceful under pressure
Don’t tow the line
You’re just at an awkward age
Don’t cry -
you’re just at an awkward age
Don’t cry
You’re just at an awkward...

You look at me like I know what’s going on
I’m looking back and I wonder what went wrong
I really thought by now a few things might just clarify
I got a mind that goes out to lunch for days
And a body that sometimes disobeys
I get into the parties but I hate them 'cause I'm shy
O h my
I’m still at an awkward age

We’ll all be fine
Disgraceful under pressure
Don’t tow the line
You’re just at an awkward age
Don’t cry -
you’re just at an awkward age
Don’t cry
You’re just at an awkward...

We’re supposed to be happy
Supposed to be tough
Supposed to be flawless
And buy the right stuff
They want us all swimming
Don’t care if we drown
So don’t let them take you down
It’s a scary mountain to climb up without a guide
Besides...
We live in an awkward age

We’ll all be fine
Disgraceful under pressure
Don’t tow the line
You’re just at an awkward age
Don’t cry -
you’re just at an awkward age
Don’t cry
You’re just at an awkward...
