So it's Friday night
And another party beckons
You got a beer in one hand
And a joint in the other

Your just 17
So young and not so
Innocent, yet sometimes you
Wonder if you're growing up too fast

Run free girl, run free
Life is but a mystery
And when you come to your senses
I'll be here waiting

Your not stupid no, oh no
Not even in the slightest
Your drink is always in your sights
No taking advantage here

And boys flock to you
Like seagulls to scraps
They just want
A piece of you

And sometimes you wonder
If maybe, just maybe
You are growing up
A little too fast

Run free girl, run free
Life is but a mystery
And when you come to your senses
I'll be here waiting

Run free girl, run free
Life is but a mystery
And when you come to your senses
I'll be here waiting

Now your drunk and they
Just keep insisting
You want to say no
But they carry you

Upstairs, lucky you didn't
Come alone, a friend says
I don't think you should go up there
And you proceed to walk home

Safe, unscathed
But barely

Run free girl, run free
Life is but a mystery
And when you come to your senses
I'll be here waiting

Run free girl, run free
Life is but a mystery
And when you come to your senses
I'll be here waiting
