Twentysomething

"After years of expensive education, a car full of books and anticipation

I'm in expert on Shakespeare and that's a hell of a lot, but the world dont need scholars as much as I thought...

Maybe Ill go traveling for a year, finding myself or start a career. I could work for the poor though Im hungry for fame, we all seem so different but we're just the same

Maybe Ill go to the gym so, I dont get fat, arent things more easy with a tight six pack? Who knows the answers? Who do you trust? I can't even separate love from lust.

Maybe Ill move back home and pay off my loans, working nine to five answering phones. Dont make me live for my friday nights, drinking eight pints and getting in fights.

I dont want to get up, just leave me lie in, leave me alone, Im a twenty something.

Maybe I'll just fall in love that could solve it all, philosophers say that that's enough. There surely must be more....

Love aint the answer nor is work, the truth eludes me so much it hurts, But im still having fun and I guess that's the key, Im a twenty something and Ill keep being me.
