about

This song was about turning twenty-two, and the thoughts and reactions that occurred on that day. It holds a bit of social commentary as well as a call out to my peers who face the similar situation.

lyrics

A lot can change in a year
Same body, different mind
365 days in the books
but I'm no longer blind

It's funny how the first birthday
that you're not supposed to wish for
turns out to be the time that you see
it's not just fun anymore

Because I've gotta make my own way
Come up swinging at the day

We're 22 and older
and we can't forget the days
where we were told to dream and think big
and when went our seperate ways

'cause we found
that life isn't all what we thought it was
It'll break your back
That's just what it does

The time for feeling victimized is over
There's only a few people that can save us from ourselves
It's not that we were fooled, we are just flawed
with participation trophies on our shelves

I'd thought I'd finally made it
I was finally old enough to buy a drink
But if you ask me now I'd tell you
I was not yet wise enough to think

Because I've gotta make my own way
Come up swinging at the day

We're 22 and older
and we can't forget the days
where we were told to dream and think big
and when went our seperate ways

'cause we found
that life isn't all what we thought it was
It'll break your back
That's just what it does
