I should have know that you were only just fifteen
You had a scowl like a Klingon beauty queen
Old enough to stand out but too young to stand with pride
So uncomfortable in your messed-up skin

And the cool parties never let you in
I can still relate to being left so high and dry
So don't cry, you're just at an awkward age

We'll all be fine, disgraceful under pressure
Don't toe the line, you're just at an awkward age
Don't cry
(Just at an awkward age)
Don't cry
(Just at an awkward age)
Just at an awkward

You look at me like I know what's going on
I'm looking back and I wonder what went wrong
I really thought by now a few things might just clarify

I got a mind that goes out to lunch for days
And a body that sometimes disobeys
I get into the parties but I hate them 'cause I'm shy
Oh my, I'm still at an awkward age

We'll all be fine, disgraceful under pressure
Don't toe the line, you're just at an awkward age
Don't cry
(Just at an awkward age)
Don't cry
(Just at an awkward age)
Just at an awkward

We're supposed to be happy, supposed to be tough
Supposed to be flawless and buy the right stuff
They want us all swimming don't care if we drown
So don't let 'em take you down

It's a scary mountain to climb up without a guide
Besides we live in an awkward age

We'll all be fine, disgraceful under pressure
Don't toe the line, you're just at an awkward age
Don't cry
(Just at an awkward age)
Don't cry
(Just at an awkward age)
You're just at an awkward age
