  • Stand up straight
    Do your trick turn on the stars
    Jupiter, shines so bright when your around
    They tell us slow down, we're too young
    You need to grow
    Well speeds is the key, and they don't know
    Who we are

    Who's to say were not good enough
    Who's to say that this is not our love

    Mother don't tell me
    That friends are the ones I lose
    Because they bleed before you
    Sometimes family are the ones you choose
    Its too late now, I hold on to the life I found

    Who's to say we won't burn it out
    Who's to say we won't sink in doubt
    Who's to say we won't fade to grey
    Who are they anyway, they don't know

    And you say we're too young
    But maybe you're too old to remember
    And I try to pretend but I just feel it when we're together
    And if you don't believe me
    You never really knew us
    You never really knew

    You and I, packing up my room
    We fell aright
    But were not welcome
    Soon
    We'll be driving
    'cause they don't know who we are

    And who's to say that we won't stay together
    And who's to say we aren't getting stronger
    And who's to say I can't live without you
    Who are they anyway, they don't know

    And you say we're too young but maybe your too old to remember
    And I try to pretend
    But I just feel it when were together
    And who's to say
    Who's to say
    Who are they anyway

    Stand up boy, I shine so bright when your around Writer/s: STEPHAN DOUGLAS JENKINS, VANESSA CARLTON
