Word on the Street

When I was 14 I swore I knew everything 

The leaves were fallin', high school was startin' and I 

Feared nothing 

First kiss at the movies, first drink with the homies 

Don’t tell my mama 

She warned me not to rush cause no matter what

Today’s gonna turn to tomorrow 

 

And Ooooo now I’m 10 years down the line 

So here’s my ode to 20-something year olds who are

Scared of wasting time

Cause word on the street is having regrets means you’ve met defeat

But I just can’t agree

How else do I learn who I wanna be 

Ooo who I wanna be

 

It’s easy to forget, that I’m still so damn young 

What happened to the beauty in 

You win some, and you lose some 

These unspoken timelines

That seem to exist

With milestones 

I didn’t even know that I missed

Questions about love

‘Bout findin' a career and movin' up 

Well here’s what I have to say 

What happened to not rushin' today? Cause...

 

Word on the street is having regrets means you’ve met defeat

But I just can’t agree

How else do I learn who I wanna be 

Ooo who I wanna be
