Your best friends become strangers,
Lollipops turn into cigarettes.
The innocent ones turn into sluts,
Homework goes in the trash,
Soda becomes vodka,
And kisses turn into sex.
Remember when getting high meant swinging on the playground?
When protection meant wearing a helmet?
When the worst thing you could get from boys were cooties?
Dad’s shoulders were the highest place on the earth and mum was you hero?
Your worst enemies were your siblings,
Race issues were about who ran the fastest,
The only drug you knew was aspirin,
Wearing a skirt didn’t make you a slut,
The only thing that hurt was your grazed knees and
Goodbyes only meant until tomorrow?
We all said we couldn’t wait to grown up, what were we thinking?
