about

This song is good for when you're feeling like you don’t know where your life is going anymore, even though you know you should and everyone else seems to. Maybe it’s just a quarter life crisis, but damn it sucks.

lyrics

I’m eating chips for breakfast
cause I forgot how mornings tasted
When you’ve got life served on a plate that you made
But I forgot the recipe, hey

But I’ve got tea that someone made for me
Cause I think I’ve got a couple friends that I still see
Maybe not from high school, but I’d still sit beside them
If they sat beside me

Now I feel like I’ve been outdone by
all who came before me
And I feel like the time’s gone so fast
I haven’t yet brushed the dust off me

That has been left here by all my teenage years
Cause I’m 20 now but I still have no idea
Which bus to get to uni, which one will drive me home
Oh can we go home now?

13 years but looking more like 20
Well who you doing that for?
I only just learned how to dress nicely
And even that’s a struggle for me

I ask everyone’s 5 year plan
Cause god I know I don’t know mine
But I know it’s expected
Can I sell you another story line

Now I feel like I’ve been outdone by
all who came before me
And I feel like the time’s gone so fast
I haven’t yet brushed the dust off me

That has been left here by all my teenage years
Cause I’m 20 now but I still have no idea
Which bus to get to uni, which one will drive me home
Oh can we go home now?

Maybe I’m just too caught up tonight
I’m in a state of nostalgia to quiet white noise in my mind
So I’ll wear yesterday’s clothes if that’ll slow things down
Let it push me aside, forget and just leave me behind

Now I feel like I’ve been outdone by
all who came before me
And I feel like the time’s gone so fast
I haven’t yet brushed the dust off me

Now I feel like I’ve been outdone by
all who came before me
And I feel like the time’s gone so fast
I haven’t yet brushed the dust off me

That has been left here by all my teenage years
Cause I’m 20 now but I still have no idea
Which bus to get to uni, which one will drive me home
Oh can we go home now?
