Verse 1:
Hey whats up?
How’s it going?
How is your life?
You turned these questions back around to me,
You want me to say I am doing just fine,
Well baby that is all alright,
But just note,
It is also a lie,
How am I supposed to feel?
I know it is selfish?
But i am real,
I am not a doll,
You can not toss me around,
tell me what to think,
I am a human being,
I’ve got feelings,
I am a teenage girl,
And I am not fine at all.

Chorus:
Now I am almost 16,
Dealing with all the jocks,
And drama queens,
High school is just so not a dream,
I always thought it would be,
Oh here I am,
Almost 16,
Struggling with grades,
I am not so inspiring,
Everyone wants something from me,
Oh I am almost 16.

Verse 2:
I know you do not want to hear about my life,
Self centered and not aright,
My cat died,
When I was almost five,
Had a heart attack in front of me,
Eleven years later,
I am cursed with anxiety,
When I was 11 my childhood friend left me,
Had not talked to her in years,
Now I can’t help but think,
Everybody leaves,
Everybody goes away,
Why make these memories,
When I know they will never stay.

Chorus:
Now I am almost 16,
dealing with all the jocks and drama queens,
high school is just so not a dream,
I always thought it would be,
oh here I am,
Almost 16,
Struggling with grades,
I am not so inspiring,
everyone wants something from me,
Oh I am almost 16.

Verse 3:
When I was 13,
I was a total jerk,
To this guy,
He told me how he felt about me,
I got fed lies for 13 years,
I thought he was just messing with my head,
Turned out he really liked me,
And I was the jerk,
In the end.

Chorus:
Now I am almost 16,
Dealing with all the jocks and drama queens,
high school is just so not a dream,
I always thought it would be,
Oh here I am,
Almost 16,
Struggling with grades,
I am so not inspiring,
everyone wants something from me,
Oh I am almost 16.

Verse 4:
When I was 15,
I started taking medication for my anxiety,
I did not know how to feel,
How to cope with the whole situation,
Sooner or later,
I would have to accept,
I had anxiety,
Bringing me down,
Drowning me,
To the point where I could not breathe,

Oh these are the issues I expirence,

Because daring,

I am,

Going on 16.
