  • They tell me I should make a plan for life
    All I'm thinking 'bout is what to do tonight
    Hundred miles an hour, no headlights
    On an open road

    We do what we can to dull the pain
    Pinky promise things'll stay the same
    Even when I'm old, I'll know your name
    Anywhere we go

    Dye my hair a million colors
    Dream I'll make a billion dollars
    I swear that day can't come soon enough
    In the meantime, we just

    Fall in love, broken heart
    Break the rules, drink too much
    We're all a mess, but I guess
    This is what it feels like to be young
    Take a punch, get back up
    Act a fool, give a fuck
    We're all a mess, but I guess
    This is what it feels like to be young, mm

    Small town and we're drinking all the liquor
    Every night tryna feel something bigger
    Hotboxing the car in the winter
    We don't wanna go home

    And I'll dye my hair a million colors
    Dream I'll make a billion dollars
    I swear that day can't come soon enough
    In the meantime, we just

    Fall in love, broken heart
    Break the rules, drink too much
    We're all a mess, but I guess
    This is what it feels like to be young
    Take a punch, get back up
    Act a fool, give a fuck
    We're all a mess, but I guess
    This is what it feels like to be young

    This can't be real life
    Don't even feel high
    Maybe if you'll take one with me
    Then it'll feel right
    Don't wanna know what
    Standing still would even feel like
    Wanted to fit in
    When I didn't, now I know
    And I just want freedom
    Can't be lonely
    Heartless, hopeful, stupid, phony
    Say they love me, but won't show me
    Is this is how it feels like to be young?

    Fall in love (young), broken heart (young)
    Break the rules (young), drink too much (young)
    We're all a mess, but I guess
    This is what it feels like to be young
    Take a punch, get back up
    Act a fool, give a fuck
    We're all a mess (haha), but I guess
    This is what it feels like to be young

    Yeah-oh-oh-oh
    No-oh, no
    This is what it feels like to be young
    This is what it feels like
    You know what it feels like, yeah
    This is what it feels like to be young Writer/s: Amala Ratna Dlamini, Anne-Marie Rose Nicholson, Billy Walsh, Brittany Marie Amaradio, Louis Russell Bell, Teo Halm
