"Fifteen, there's still time for you
Time to buy and time to choose,
Hey fifteen, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got a hundred years to live."
"Sixteen for a Moment"
Yesterday, I was
fifteen sixteen for a moment. Caught in between ten and twenty. And I was just dreaming. Magically whisked back to senior prom. Sitting patiently. Waiting to get out of the house. Wishing for time to move faster. Eager for the next step. The next leap. To spread my wings and fly.
"Half time goes by
suddenly you are wise.
Another blink of an eye
The sun is getting high
We're moving on."
-100 Years (Five for Fighting)
I want to tell her to not wish time away. To not chase the years of her life. It will pass by too quickly entirely on it's own. Be patient. But I'm sixteen for a moment. So I know I wouldn't listen either. You have to learn these things in your own time. It's okay, because sixteen...I'm alright with you.
So I have to thank MY sixteen year old (Thing #3) for forcing me to listen to "Alternative Nation" on Sirius radio. And not once (yet!) have the words "you call THAT music?!?" come out of my mouth. I have to admit, I like her taste. Thanks Thing #3. And someday? I'm sure you are gonna say the same thing when your dad forces you to listen to the "Classic Vinyl" station. Next week's Song-ography comes courtesy of "Alternative Nation"...
