You said we'd both be different when we're 18.

You said you'd see yourself in a band,

Or maybe just going to a nice college.

Then you asked me where I thought I'd be

And I told you I had no clue,

Because people change, our passions change.

But then I had a final thought:

"I want to be away from this wretched town,

My godawful family,

And all the horrible memories this place holds."

That's what I told you,

It was the truest answer you'd ever get out of me

Because I had no idea where I wanted to be,

All I knew was that I wanted to find myself 

Away from it all,

And maybe with you.

I'll never be completely sure of where I'll be when I'm 18

The only thing I can hope for is that I'll be with you.
