about

I love the simple rhyme scheme in the chorus.

This one really took me weeks to mix until I was happy with how the instruments were placed.

This song is about how I miss those innocent times I had when I walked the streets of Katipunan Avenue after school, dreaming of being a musician when I hit my twenties. Nowadays, those days seem a lifetime ago.

Don't you just sometimes feel that life can just be one obligation after another?

I think I was listening to The Shins' Chutes Too Narrow when I wrote this one. And some Solveig Sandnes.

I must confess: This turned out to be my personal fave in the bunch after I've completed everything.

lyrics

TEENAGE DREAMS

"Have a nice day,"
the elevator operator said
I've forgotten to pray again
The Church is hot, the sermons are so lame
Everyday
Pornography and websites on the brain
It's my escape
From cubicles and long commutes and those reality games

Everyday feels like a guillotine
All that I hold on to are my teenage dreams
Everyday is just the same routine
I wanna get back to my teenage dream
My teenage dreams
When I was seventeen
My teenage teenage teenage dreams oh

Real estate
Apartments so expensive you'd hide away
"Your money's okay,"
the automated teller machine said
It's all a mistake
The college courses swimming in your head
"Carpe diem,"
they said, "Who knows tomorrow you and I could end up dead."

Everyday feels like a guillotine
All that I hold on to are my teenage dreams
Everyday is just the same routine
I wanna get back to my teenage dream
When I was seventeen
My teenage teenage teenage dreams oh
