2009 (A Teenage Oddysey)

about

A tribute to our teen years and the music that made them.

lyrics

There's a party at Leia's place
So grab your cheap wine and cigarillos
All the boys love Radiohead
And all the girls have read On The Road
But there's this sadness that I can't explain
Running through my veins straight to my soul
Oh, it's the sadness of reality
When the summer's gone will we, too, turn cold?

Let's pretend we're in love
Or just pretend we're not dying
We're dancing round the truth
You spin me like this room
(Millenial whoop)
I think I
I think I
Love you, love you, love you
Love you, love you, love you
Love you, love you, love you
No I don't!

Spent the summer resisting it
I see you kissing her
You say "how can you be jealous?"
I don't know how that's supposed to work
I think I'll kiss her too
And get a bit over-zealous
We fell asleep on a basement mattress
At 6AM now our heads are throbbing
We were up playing "truth or dare"
And the evidence is ground into the carpet

Let's pretend we're in love
Or just pretend we're not dying
We're dancing round the truth
You spin me like this room
(Millenial whoop)
I think I
I think I
Love you, love you, love you
Love you, love you, love you
Love you, love you, love you
No I don't!
