Stephen Dawes – “Teenage Dream” single

“You think I’m pretty without any makeup on. You think I’m funny when I tell the punch line wrong. I know you get me, so I let my walls come down. Before you met me, I was alright, but things were kinda heavy. You brought me to life, now every February you’ll be my Valentine. Let’s go all the way tonight, no regrets, just love. We can dance until we die, you and I will be young forever. You make me feel like I’m living a teenage dream.” – lyrics

‘Teenage Dream’ tells an endearing tale about a young guy who desires to run away with his significant other. Apparently, his companion turns him on so much that he can’t sleep at night because he’s constantly thinking about her. Later, he tells his partner, “We drove to Cali and got drunk on the beach. Got a motel and built a fort out of sheets. I finally found you, my missing puzzle piece, I’m complete.”

‘Teenage Dream’ contains a relatable narrative and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with fans of Katy Perry, Bon Iver, and David Kushner. The likable tune possesses guitar-driven instrumentation seasoned with alternative, chillwave, and indie-pop ingredients. Furthermore, “Teenage Dream” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear from Stephen Dawes, who currently has TikTok and Instagram videos reaching over 700k views.

“My heart stops when you look at me.”
