the aftergreens – get my act together lyrics

Loading...

[verse 1]
the kids that i went to school with are all getting engaged
and i’m still having trouble getting out of bed everyday
and i’m always late for work, i never answer my phone
and i’m afraid that i am destined to die alone

i used to take pride in my intellect – i thought that i was brimming with knowledge
but now i see i’m far too dumb and poor to ever attend college
but i still have aspirations and i still love to dream!
and i hope i’m not as hopeless as i seem

[chorus]
when i’m not brilliant and i’m not colorful – and i am hardly an artist but if there’s one thing that i know that i’m good at, it’s complaining and with every second that i choose to waste, my life is fading
i need to stop sleeping in past noon
i hope i get my act together soon

[verse 2]
when i was younger i dreamt of adulthood and i hope this isn’t it
because now i’ve been around over twenty years and i still haven’t found a place i fit
it’s hard to go out and meet new people when my anxiety makes me stay
but that’s alright, i wouldn’t have anything to say anyway

but i’m blessed to have such f-cking awesome friends who don’t get bothered a bit
but i’m afraid that one day they’ll have enough and stop putting up with my sh-t
sh-t!
it doesn’t surprise me that i’m this lonely when i’m not the person that i want to be
and yet, i criticize everyone around me

[chorus]
when i’m not brilliant and i’m not colorful – and i am hardly an artist
but if there’s one thing that i know that i’m good at, it’s complaining
and with every second that i choose to waste, my life is fading
i need to stop sleeping in past noon
i hope i get my act together soon

i’m not brilliant and i’m not colorful – and i am hardly an artist
but if there’s one thing that i know that i’m good at, it’s complaining
and with every second that i choose to waste, my life is fading
i need to stop sleeping in past noon
i hope i get my act together soon
