seventeen, behind the scenes
our names were written in the steam
on the window of my daddy's dream machine
our destiny, so it seemed
we were the backseat king and queen
while we listened to the frequencies between
sometimes I wonder when I hear a certain song
was it wrong to turn you on?
will the magic soon be gone?
'cause I know we all gotta grow up
sometimes though I don't know why
I try so hard not to say good-bye
FM radio you're coming through my stereo
FM radio you're with me everywhere I go
are you getting old, growing up with rock and roll?
FM radio taught me everything I know
twenty-one, having fun
I dreamed of being number one
with a bullet fired from a golden gun
a setting sun where I'm from
my fantasy had just begun
when I heard all the news of what's to come
sometimes I wonder what the satellites can see
could it be actually
that they're looking back at me?
