When I was 10 I was 20, when I was 20 I was 12
I spent four years of high school trying to be someone else
And then three years of college, trying to learn whatever I can
Just to come back for another and find I don't give a damn

I never wanted to grow up, I swore I'd never break down
So I kept dancing in cooridors, trying to be someone's clown
I never raced for the finish, figured life would find a way
But now time's going faster, going faster every day

And all the storefronts are closing, drifting out to the sea
And I can't even think about what's gonna happen to me
I'm 21 in an instant, got nothing to fear
And I wanna be 21 while 21's still here

I know I gotta look forward, I know I gotta finish school
But now we're running out of money, yeah, we're running out of fuel
I know the real world keeps turning, I don't wanna stand still
But I'm afraid if no one makes me move, then I never will

You know I've shuffled and shambled through a quarter of my life
Before too long I'll have a mortgage, maybe kids and a wife
And the suburbs will all vanish, the coastlines will recede
And it'll be way too late for me to get what I need

Am I too late for adventure? Did I pass up my chance?
Should I have reached for that soft hand and asked her to dance?
I won't be 21 later, I'm only 21 now
And I wanna be 21 while I still know how

Now the world's tipping over, not much more time to be young
My dad warned me I'd be finished before I knew I'd begun
I got one year left of freedom, eighteen months at the best
Then it's a life full of compromise and working to death

I wanna cast off my worries, I wanna scream them out loud
Cuz there's an old man who'd kill to be where I am right now
I wanna leap without looking, I wanna run some red lights
I wanna make love to a stranger and not spend the night

I wanna run like a child, I wanna walk like a man
I wanna put all my faith in a rock n roll band
I'm 21 for a moment, 21 for a song
And I wanna be 21 before 21's gone
