lyrics

i get fed up with life once in awhile and i need to quit my job just to remember i'm alive. if you want to stand and want to smile, you are alive you are alive you are alive.

and i remember when we were young and we said we'd always care, they said we're just naive, look at their shoes look at their hair. now it's ten years down the road and twenty six years old, who would've known that we'd live so bold..

i know some folks who live in trees and others who wear business suits, both talk about living free. if you had the chance to be free, how can you decide that's not for me?

but now we look around and wonder where all of our old friends have gone, they've moved on to careers and families. they're looking down on us for doing the same thing as when we were eighteen, like it never meant anything to them but it meant something to me.

you want to laugh and say they act like they're eighteen. we act eighteen like we're still living out our dreams. in our communities we don't care what you say, do you remember that we were once the same?

but it seems like some of us forgot what those feelings were about. there's a fine line between growing up and selling out. we can live more if we buy less, let's all live more let's all buy less. live more buy less.

and now we look around and wonder where all of our old friends have gone, they've moved on to careers and families. they're looking down on us for doing the same thing as when we were eighteen, like it never meant anything to them but it meant something to me. yea it meant something to me. and it meant something to me. it still means something to me.
