Lyrics 

Each time we have a quarrel

It almost breaks my heart

‘Cause I’m so afraid

That we will have to part

Each night I ask

The stars up above

Why must I be

A teenager in love?

One day I feel so happy

Next day I feel so sad

I guess, I’ll learn to take

The good with the bad

‘Cause each night I ask

The stars up above

Why must I be

A teenager in love?

I cried a tear

For nobody but you

I’ll be a lonely one

If you should say we’re through

Well, if you want to make me cry

That won’t be so hard to do

If you should say goodbye

I’ll still go on loving you

Each night I ask

The stars up above

Why must I be

A teenager in love?

I cried a tear

For nobody but you

I’ll be a lonely one

If you should say we’re through

Well, if you want to make me cry

That won’t be so hard to do

And if you should say goodbye

I’ll still go on loving you

Each night I ask

The stars up above

Why must I be

A teenager in love? (In love)

Why must I be

A teenager in love? (In love)

Why must I be

A teenager in love? (In love)

Why must I be

A teenager in love?
