Tenille Arts – Sweet Sixteen Lyrics

Momma never lies
And daddy’s superhuman
Time is just something to waste
And you don’t know it’s moving

As sure as the grass grows back and the hot sun sets
Your five best friends will be your best friends forever
Remember?

Wasn’t that sweet sixteen?
Just candles and a never-broke heart
First miles on a hand-me-down car
Tryna cross those county lines
Summer nights, shotgun seats
Stealing one more kiss before curfew
Covering smoke with my sister’s perfume
No ceiling on that big blue sky
Before I found out getting out of that small town
Really wasn’t that sweet
Wasn’t that sweet sixteen?

Turning off the news
In my one-bedroom apartment
Damn, I wish I knew
How good I had it back then
Back when
I was dying to be one of the popular girls
And the game rained out was the end of the world

Wasn’t that sweet sixteen?
Just candles and a never-broke heart
First miles on a hand-me-down car
Tryna cross those county lines
Summer nights, shotgun seats
Stealing one more kiss before curfew
Covering smoke with my sister’s perfume
No ceiling on that big blue sky
Before I found out getting out of that small town
Really wasn’t that sweet
Wasn’t that sweet sixteen?

Sixteen, sixteen, yeah

Wasn’t that sweet sixteen?
When you had a perfect view
Of your whole life in front of you

Wasn’t that sweet sixteen?
Stealing one more kiss before curfew
Covering smoke with my sister’s perfume
No ceiling on that big blue sky
Before I found out getting out of that small town
Really wasn’t that sweet
Wasn’t that sweet sixteen?
Sixteen, sixteen, yeah
Sixteen, yeah
