Dream Not Sweet Sixteen..


Dream not sweet sixteen, just dream not
Earth is of hidden pits
Love is blind and these pits- knows not
Beware of pits and hits
You are too young, yet to learn more
Fall and pain- to ignore and soar
You are too young
You are too young
Love is of hurdles-trip not more


Dream not sweet sixteen, just dream not
But I know you will dream
And having fallen in love sought
Be watchful not to scream
What shall I say than 'be watchful'
But I know you won't be watchful
What shall I say
What shall I say
Beware before it goes vengeful


Dream not sweet sixteen, just dream not
Oh, I know you can't dream
As fallen love will help you not
Should have thought before dream
Folly- your fate, spoilt- your life lo
Look, how the satan escapes- so
Folly- your fate
Folly- your fate
But no pity- rise, fight to grow
