Twenties

Streaming everywhere

I miss being young, getting drunk in my dorm room,
staring at myself in the mirror like I’m brand new,
feeling like I figured it out, nothing to prove,
unafraid of time

Everything was worth all the work that I put in
I could get away with behaviors I shouldn’t
Always found a way to regain fumbled footing
like my life was mine,

[Chorus:]
Now everybody’s counting on me,
betting all they’ve got on my roaring twenties
but I’m waking up from the dream
I’m afraid of my age, am I wasting my twenties?

Am I wasting my twenties?

Back when I was chasing my dreams in the daytime
it seemed like the path that I had was a straight line
Everything I did could be pinned as a good try,
like I had a chance

Like my performance of my age wasn’t strange, wasn’t different,
didn’t go astray from the way they predicted
I’d be living my life
Felt like I was getting it right

[Chorus]
What if I’m not ready to be
anything they said would be better for me?
What if this is what I need?
I’m afraid if I wait I’ll be wasting my twenties

Am I wasting my twenties?

Feeling the weight over my age
starting to break my hope down
Would I be making a mistake
to slow down?

Everybody’s counting on me,
betting all they’ve got on my youthful plenty
but I’m waking up from the dream
I’m afraid of my age, am I wasting my twenties?

I won’t be
anything they said would be better for me
What if this is what I need?
I’m afraid if I wait I’ll be wasting my twenties

I’ll be wasting my twenties
