lyrics

Don’t ask her now, she won’t hear what you’re saying
She’s too far gone, she’s done listening
She’s a bull on the run through blood red streets
Nostrils flaring and stamping her feet

Sixteen and just like her mother
With the weight of the world on her shoulders
Sixteen and thinks her life is over
Not yet a woman but definitely not a girl
No definitely not

Don’t chase her now, you won’t catch up to her
She’s moving too fast, she’s too far ahead
Running scared, she’ll fall down hard
Keep the home fires burning until she gets tired

Sixteen and just like her mother
With the weight of the world on her shoulders
Sixteen and thinks her life is over
Not yet a woman but definitely not a girl
No definitely not

Nobody said it’d be easy
But nobody said it would be this hard
She’s throwing punches every which way
Hitting everyone she ever loved
Everything is different
She’s no longer omnipotent
And nobody understands

Sixteen and just like her mother
With the weight of the world on her shoulders
Sixteen and thinks her life is over
Not yet a woman but definitely not a girl
No definitely not
