Only 15

Only 15
(Difford / Tilbrook)

I was supposed to be in by half past ten
I was invited to a party with a couple of friends
All their ideas seemed so good at the time
But now they seem to have been just not right
The cheap warm drinks had begun to flow
The curtains were pulled and the lights were low

The girls in the corner seemed happy enough
I looked around the room and I was falling in love
The stereo tapes played on into the night
I was so nervous that I wanted to hide
I knew I should have and made some excuse
But the girl I was chatting wouldn’t let me loose

You’re only 15
You must be in by 9
Nobody agrees with having a good time
You’re only 15 you’ve got to get up for school
And there is no answer for breaking rules

Just one more drink and I was now lost
And the room was spinning around and across
The music got softer I was in another room
With my jeans on the headboard
And my eyes on the moon
I couldn’t say no to whatever she said
I woke in the morning to an empty bed

I climbed across bodies morooned on the floor
I put on my jacket and opened the door
When I got home I crept up the stairs
My mother was waiting she questioned me there
I must have seemed hopeless with my white lies
But she said she believed me and that it was alright
