18



18 is a song by 5 Seconds of Summer from their self-titled debut album.

Critical ReceptionEdit

On July 22, 2014 in a track-by-track Billboard review, writer Jason Lipshutz stated: "The entire appeal of 5 Seconds of Summer's style is on display on "18," a legitimately funny, insanely catchy ode to the frustration of waiting for adulthood when you're still a punk kid. The guys effortlessly sell lines like "She's got a naughty tattoo/In a place that I want to get to/But my mom still drives me to school," bouncing along with the Ashton Irwin's snappy percussion and sounding like they're having a blast with the concept." [1]

LyricsEdit

Luke:
I wish, that I was 18
Do all the things you read in the magazines
I'm not sayin' I wanna be Charlie Sheen

Calum:
She's just a little bit older
But I want to get to know her
But she says it's already over

So tell me what else can I do?
I bought my fake ID for you

Luke and Michael:
She told me to meet her there
I can't afford a bus fare
I'm not old enough for her
I'm just waiting till I'm 18

Calum:
I think she wants to get with me
But she's got a job in the city
Says that she's always too busy

Michael:
She's got a naughty tattoo
In a place that I wanna get to
But my mum still drives me to school

Calum:
So tell me what else can I do?
I bought my fake ID for you

Luke and Michael:
She told me to meet her there
I can't afford a bus fare
I'm not old enough for her
I'm just waiting till I'm 18

You got me waiting in a queue
For a bar I can't get into
I'm not old enough for you
I'm just waiting till I'm 18

Luke:
In my bedroom thinking of her
Her pictures in my private folder
I know one day that I will hold her
I'll make my move when I get older
(Make my move when I get older)

Luke and Michael:
She told me to meet her there
I can't afford a bus fare
I'm not old enough for her
I'm just waiting till I'm 18

You got me waiting in a queue
For a bar I can't get into
I'm not old enough for you
I'm just waiting till I'm 18

Luke:
I'm so sick of waiting till I'm 18
(laughs)
