Because I am Jada

Teenagers just want to have fun.
Of course that would mean drinking,
But it’s just fun
I wonder if it’s just fun
Because I am Jada

Teenagers just want to be loved
Of course that would mean being with boys
I think… I mean it can’t be
Just fun I mean
Because I am Jada

Is it wrong for teenagers to want to have fun?
Is it wrong for teenagers to want to be loved?
To want to forget?
I can’t forget
Because I am Jada

I can forgive
Because I am Jada

Fun isn’t having social media bash you
Fun isn’t being embarrassed in public
Teens want to have it.
I don’t
Because I am Jada.

I am strong
Because I am Jada
