You're Too Young Lyrics

She was so clever for her age
As a kid she took pride in everything she said or did,
She was born as an angel, ticked every box in the list
How could someone so beautiful end up like this?
She was brought up on an everyday council estate,
had friends and family who were never too far away

Even as a kid she'd sometimes lose her temper
and if attentions being given garunteed she's in the center,
School was a struggle, result of her behaviour
excluded for the fights, a saint a few days later
coz when she got angry, she'd flip, see red
You're too pretty for the violence, her mum always said

She had high asperations, she was chasing the dream
Until her first conviction at the age of fourteen
She nearly killed a girl just for looking the wrong way
Smashed her head so hard against the ground
she was unconscious for days,
Passers by stopped to witness the torture,
While she stamped on the head of a policemans daughter,
No remorse for the cause of the magistrates court,
It was everybody elses fault of course

What you doing with your night?
You're too young to ruin your life
What you doing with your life?
You're too young to die tonight

After that things began to slip out of grip
And her grades were failing but she didn't give a...
She was top dog at school and all the girls were scared
And when she walked through the corridors, all the boys stared

She craved to be wanted she didn't care how
She wanted everything including this guy Ben she liked now
He was 19, liked fighting and smoking the green
He was a dealer, had a beamer, she thought he was a dream

She got his number ‘hey you okay text back Chelsea Price'
It was monday they agreed to meet up on friday night
She played it cool, the whole week she wondered what to wear
She planned her jewellery, her makeup, her shoes and her hair

The days went so slow, school was so boring
But before she knew it, it was already friday morning
She was nervous and scared but in a good way,
She had no idea that this was no ordinary day

When she walked down the stairs it was 7 o'clock,
He was coming at 8, she had to iron her top
7:45 came and she looked gorgeous
Rapunzel let out too early from the fortress

What you doing with your night?
You're too young to ruin your life
What you doing with your life?
You're too young to die tonight

She gets in the car, says hi, they drive off
They head to a car park where he can skin up
She gets into conversation nods and smiles
and she feels so happy and not even shy

A girl pulls up, sees Ben and screams
He puts the car in gear and gets ready to leave
This girl gets outta the car and stands in front
she screams ‘thats my boyfriend get out you little...'

Chelsea turns to Ben who just shrugs you don't believe her
She's never been scared and she's not today either
She puts her hand on the door and gets out to fight
She's angry now this bitch has just ruined her night

The two girls clash, hair pulling, fists flying
Chelsea sees blood gushing the other steps back crying
Chelsea grins coz she thinks she's won
Then she looks at Bens face who's completely stunned

Then there's a pain in the middle of her stomach,
The bloods on her t-shirt, the other girl starts running
Chelseas heart thuds, panic sets in more
Looks down at the pool of blood
and there's a knife on the floor

What you doing with your night?
You're too young to ruin your life
What you doing with your life?
You're too young to die tonight

She hears tires screeching, loosing so much blood
Bens car's gone it's got a boot full of drugs
She lies there eyes wide open facing the sky,
Thoughts roll outta her mind while she questions why

Her last movement and the tears she's crying,
She thinks about her family as she lies there dying,
She's alone on her own because of the violence
Can't hear people or friends or help or sirens

She whispers ‘I'm sorry'
There's no one on the way,
as she returns to an angel,
and her soul slips away

What you doing with your night?
You're too young to ruin your life
What you doing with your life?
You're too young to die tonight
