Evan: I’m Evan Goldman, I live at 224 West 92nd Street, in the heart of Manhattan. And my life just went to hell.

Picture me just another cool kid in NYC, near the park and the Met Life is sweet, Yankees in the Bronx, pretzels on the street, just how good can it get? Who’d have guess Dad would meet a stewardess? Mom’s depressed and her lawyers are mean Now I’m stressed, life is a disaster And I’m cracking from the strain, going totally insane And I’m just about to turn Just about to turn Just about to turn

Evan: In the middle of this city In the middle of this street There’s a sound of something crumbling, Rumbling underneath my feet

In the middle of the sidewalk Outside P.S. 84, I hear a roar I can’t ignore

I hear Evan it’s not your fault I hear Evan can’t you see I hear Evan do you want to go with Mom or stay with me?

I hear kiddo, I’m not angry I hear buddy, you know best And there’s the rumbling getting louder

But there’s one day in October Where the pieces all will fit When they have to be together And pretend they didn’t quit

I’ve got one day in October And I know it’s got to be The perfect party

I’m becoming a man I don’t know what a man really means The rule book grows, but no one knows What all the rules allow

I’m becoming a man No one tells all the scared in-betweens Just how we should be strong, be good With so much pressure now

One day it gets better One day it makes sense One day I’ll stop talking in the friggin future tense One day in October It’ll all be great And I can’t wait I can’t wait I can’t wait

Others: I can’t wait to come to your party I can’t wait to come to your party I can’t wait to come to your party I can’t wait to come to your party Party! I can’t wait I can’t wait Can’t wait Can’t wait Can’t wait Can’t wait Can’t wait Cant wait for thirteen!
