Same problem here. I'd love to get the "Still Sixteen"-lyrics.

this is what i hear, feel free to correct or disagree Wink



can't seem to write any other right lines
they're on the tip of my tongue but they're there all the time
i'm not where i wanna be, in fact i'm not even close
and the last time i was happy, i was out on the coast

and i remember old girlfriends, now i've screwed up
i remember friends who died that won't be showing up
i got a bomb in my pocket, it's ticking away
and i would've drop it in a mailbox back in the day

so you grab your jacket and i'll show you my new tattoo
it's getting kind of late but there's always something to do
we'll go wreck some houses and stay out till 3
set fire to the sidewalks and pretend we're still sixteen

we've got no school left, ___
we've all got real jobs and taxes to pay
there's no prom to crash and no promqueen to harass
___, i'm scared, we're getting too old too fast

so where are my car keys and when can i sleep?
what would you say if it was the last word you'd speak?
where would you drive if there was the last place you'd go?
me, i'd/i'll probably end up back at the coast

so you grab your jacket and i'll show you my new tattoo
it's getting kind of late but there's always something to do
we'll go wreck some houses and stay out till 3
set fire to the sidewalks and pretend we're still sixteen

so you grab your jacket and i'll show you my new tattoo
it's getting kind of late but there's always something to do
we'll go wreck some houses and stay out till 3
set fire to the sidewalks and pretend we're still sixteen

Thanks Bea, they sound perfect! Had a few close listens again and heres what im hearing in verse 4

we've got no school left, we skidpped it anyway
we've all got real jobs and taxes to pay
there's no prom to crash and no promqueen to harass
we’re all scared, we're getting too old too fast

Holy Shit. I just listened to that song for the first time and I started crying. Music has never made me cry before. Ever. And I'm not even 16 yet, let alone old enough to relate to being 16.

Its one of my favourite tunes ever, just a brilliant sonf. Would love to hear Brian or TGA do a more 'polished' version of it

I'll second that, although I think it may sound a bit lest honest (as ic he wasan't talking about his own experiences) if he were to do a polished studio version.

Didsurrogate Mckenzie ever release anything on tape or vinyl?

Brian Rothebeck tells me they did sell tapes: "We went all out with the tapes: J cards, Brian [Fallon] did the cover art (which we of course color photocopied), I think we even included lyrics."

He's having a look to see if he can find some.

Can anyone tell me the chords for this Still Sixteen? And is it weird that I like this as much as many other Gaslight tunes?
