  1. Twenty-Two

Lyrics

I'm twenty-two
it's the 8th of February
Twenty-two
years ago a star was born
Twenty-two
let's celebrate the age in which your
age don't really matter anymore

I've been
drinking responsibly for a year now
A halfway decent lad behind the wheel
There ain't a movie in the world that I can't see
(Show us how it’s done!)
Just watch me

College heads towards its final season
My youth will soon head for the hills
But never mind, I'm 22, and we all know what that means
(What does it mean?)
I dunno

I'm twenty-two
it's the 8th of February
Twenty-two
years ago a star was born
Twenty-two
let's celebrate the age in which your
age don't really matter anymore
Don’t matter anymore

It’s far too young to be responsible
But far too old to be carefree
Still several decades from the wisdom, but unfortunately
one whole decade past when I could say I didn’t know any better
I didn’t know any better

It’s not the worst thing that can happen
I mean, I could turn twenty-three
Or everything beyond until the day that I expire
It’s the best and worst dang time to be alive

And it's all downhill from here
And it's all downhill from here
Yes it's all downhill from here
It’s all downhill from here

Yeah, you’re twenty-two, boy
It’s all downhill from here
Hope you enjoy living at home for the next several years
The real world is scary, just stretch out those credits and never graduate, okay?

No more birthday parties
What do you do when youth’s lost its novelty
expected to take on more accountability
Don’t listen to what Taylor Swift says about it, guys, she’s rich, remember?

Key change!
And it’s all downhill from here
Scratch that, too high, never mind

Cuz it’s all downhill
Which is nice when you’re riding a bike, not so much for existence, you know?

All downhill from here
The grains in the hourglass slip through my hands
My lifespan deteriorates while my belly expands
The horizon recedes like my hairline, farther out of my grasp

And it's all downhill from here
At least in three more years
I'll get to rent a car
