Lyrics

VERSE
Phone rings again, jump outta bed, 2AM
But it's not you, just a worried friend
She saw you on the other side of town
Tried to bring you home
But you stay with that crazy crowd

PRE CHORUS
You're way too young, to be taking on that world
Caught somewhere in between a woman and a girl

CHORUS
You're just 18. Do you know what your life means
And how precious you really are. Don't care who's right or wrong
And I don't want to fight. I just want you safe, here at home, tonight

VERSE
I've been here before, just a different place and time
I carry scars and more, though their hidden by my pride
Come home we'll talk it through, what's going on inside
I'm waiting up for you cuz sleep won't come tonight

PRE CHORUS
You're way too young, to be taking on that world
Caught somewhere in between a woman and a girl

CHORUS
You're just 18. Do you know what life really means
And how precious you really are. Don't care who's right or wrong
And I don't want to fight. I just want you safe, here at home, tonight

PRE CHORUS
You're way too young, to be taking on that world
Caught somewhere in between a woman and a girl

CHORUS
You're just 18. Do you know what your life means.
And how precious you really are. Don't care who's right or wrong
And I don't want to fight. I want you safe
I just want you home - tonight
