lyrics

It’s almost daylight, farewells have all been said
The last teenagers have toddled off to bed
We like to play hard, though it gets way harder
We’ll hit the hay hard
Hey, but we’re not dead yet

Our instincts don’t fail, our sights were always clear
We blazed our own trail, that’s how we wound up here
Not always flawless, but we take solace
you couldn’t call us anything less than sincere

Like everything for which our generation’s known
We love to sing the old favourites in new ways and make them our own
And when it’s time to catch our ride
We’ll greet each other on the other side
Where we will never be misunderstood again

There is still power moving through us
Even as that hour draws closer to us

It’s almost midday, shouts ring across the floor
The Last Teenagers look like we’ve lost one more
And for a second, the rhythms quicken
then go on ticking same as they did before

We dealt with money, sex, and time in new ways, why not this then?
Someday, so will you
Can’t tell where we end and where you begin
That’s maybe something we can help you through

We weren’t the worst - whatever else we did, we cared
We were the first to learn what we did the way we did and shared
We were generous
With all of you who followed us.
So you would never be misunderstood again
