16 Lyrics - Green Day

Review The Song (3)



Every night I dream the same dream
Of getting older and older all the time
I ask you now, what does this mean?
Are all these problems just in my mind?

Things are easy when you're a child
But now these pressures have dropped on my head
The length I've gone are just long miles
Would they be shorter if I were dead

Every time I look in my past
I always wish I was there
I wish my youth would forever last
Why are these times so unfair

Look at my friends and see what they've done
Ask myself why they had to change
I like them better when they were young
Now all these times are rearranged

sponsored links
I look down and stand there and cry
Nothing ever will be the same
The sun is rising, now I ask why?
The clouds now fall and here comes the rain

Every time I look in my past
I always wish I was there
I wish my youth would forever last
Why are these times so unfair

<solo>

Every night I dream the same dream
Of getting older and older all the time
I ask you now, what does this mean?
Are all these problems just in my mind?

Things are easy when you're a child
But now these pressures have dropped on my head
The length I've gone are just long miles
Would they be shorter if I were dead

Every time I look in my past
I always wish I was there
I wish my youth would forever last
Why are these times so unfair

song meaning. My opinion im not sure if this is correct but this is what i believe hes talking about | Reviewer: Yeslek | 1/2/09

This song is defiantly about being 16 years old and realizing that life wont be the same when you get older. Billie is seeing his friends change and he doesn't want to grow up yet. He wants to go back and live that life forever. He doesn't see anyone else struggling or missing their childhood and he doesn't understand why he is. Times going by too fast for him. Everyday hes realizes hes aging more and more. Hes having dreams about what his life will be like when hes older. Time seems unfair to him. Being younger was worry free and much easier but he has all these responsibilities now and he doesn't think he can handle them.
