​Thirteen

This song is by Graziano Romani and appears on the album Painting Over Rust (2004).

Thirteen in a world too wild, thirteen got your bright eyes open wide
You'd like to run faster than these times
To hold back the emptiness you feel inside
'Cause life's no dream, no carousel, you pay your dues, you learn it well
Trust your heart and take your chance to sing your song and dance your dance

And you wish you could fly, and you're blowin' your mind, thirteen
And you wish you could fly, but all you can do is dream, thirteen.

Thirteen and it's black or white, thirteen always stuck between wrong and right
Courting catastrophe with brand-new toys
It's hard to talk to you, there's nothing but noise
You pierce your skin, tattoo your soul, can't stand your old man's rock'n'roll
Set your pace and take your chance to sing your song and dance your dance

And you wish you could fly, and you're shiftin' your mind, thirteen
And you wish you could fly, but all you can do is dream, thirteen.

Oh, life's no dream, no carousel, you pay your dues, you learn it well
Choose your speed and take your chance to sing your song and dance your dance

And you wish you could fly, always changin' your mind, thirteen
And you wish you could fly, when all that is left is dream
And you wish you could fly, always shiftin' your mind, thirteen
And you wish you could fly, but all you can do is dream, thirteen...

Thirteen in a world too wild, thirteen got your bright eyes open wide
Thirteen, thirteen, thirteen.
