  • I ain't trading my youth for no suit and jacket
    I ain't giving my freedom for your money and status
    So don't say I'm getting older
    'Cause I'll say it when I do

    'Cause everybody I know, everybody I know
    Is growing old, is growing old too quickly
    And I don't wanna go
    No how am I supposed to slow it down so I can figure out who I am?

    And I ain't trading my dreams for no 401k
    And I ain't giving this fire for a cold, cold heart
    So don't say I'm getting colder
    'Cause I'll say it when I do

    'Cause everybody I know, everybody I know
    Is growing old, is growing old too quickly
    And I don't wanna go
    No how am I supposed to slow it down so I can figure out who I am?

    Some of us surviving
    Some of us just roaming
    Some of us just hoping the world will move more slowly
    And some of us alive
    We're all gonna die one day
    Yeah some of us surviving
    Some of us just roaming
    Some of us just hoping the world will move more slowly
    And some of us alive
    We're all gonna die one day
    Yeah, some of us surviving
    Some of us just roaming
    Some of us just hoping the world will move more slowly
    Some of us alive
    We're all gonna die one day

    'Cause everybody I know, everybody I know
    Is growing old, is growing old too quickly
    And I don't wanna go
    No how am I supposed to slow it down so I can figure out who I am? Writer/s: BRIAN VICTOR MACDONALD, JUDAH LEE AKERS, NATHAN EDWARD ZUERCHER, SPENCER MORGAN CROSS
