Stand up straight.
Do your trick.
Turn on the stars
Jupiter shines so bright
When you're around.
They tell us slow down,
We're too young, you need to grow.
The speed's the key,
And they don't know who we are.

And who's to say that we're not good enough?
And who's to say that this is not our love?

Mother don't tell me friends are the ones that I lose,
'Cause they'd bleed before you,
And sometimes family are the ones you'd choose.
It's too late now
I hold on to this life I found.

And who's to say we won't burn it out?
And who's to say we won't sink in doubt?
Who's to say that we won't fade to gray?
Who are they anyway?
Anyway they don't know.

And you say we're too young,
but maybe you're too old to remember.
And I try to pretend but I just feel it when we're together.
And if you don't believe me, you never really knew us,
You never really knew.

You and I, packin' up my room, we feel alright,
But we're not welcome.
 Soon we'll be drivin', 'cause they don't know who we are,

Who's to say we won't stay together?
Who's to say we aren't getting stronger?
Who's to say I can't live without you?
Who are they anyway?
Anyway they don't know.

And you say we're too young,
but maybe you're too old to remember.
And I try to pretend, but I just feel it when we're together.
Who is to say?
And who is to say?
And who are they anyway?

Stand up boy, I shine so bright when you're around.
