2085 Lyrics

[Refrain: Jack Met]
You are not alone, young child
Young child
You are not alone, young child
Young child

[Verse 1: Jack Met]
If somebody told me I'd die at 40
I wouldn't have spent my time in bed
Writing my dumb songs, my growing up songs
I shoulda just grown up instead

[Refrain: Jack Met]
You are not alone, young child
Young child

[Verse 2: Jack Met]
Now all of the interns are no longer interns
How long have I been out of town?
'Cause sometimes I wonder if I had kissed her
How different life would be right now

[Pre-Chorus: Jack Met]
I smile when I cry to hide what I felt
"I'm doing fine", speak for yourself
I shoulda just asked for help

[Chorus: Jack Met]
Hey
It's 2085 and we're old as sh!t
Whatеver
Hey
I'd hate to havе to die 'fore I get my head together
Whatever
(You are not alone, young child, young child)

[Verse 3: Jack Met]
So finish your work now; it's getting warm out
If you got friends, don't let them leave
I turned 20-something; it didn't mean nothing
'Cause not one of them were there to see

[Refrain: Jack Met]
You are not alone, young child
Young child

[Verse 4: Jack Met]
And go tell your grandson to go tell his grandson
You don't have to try so hard, ya know
'Cause I spent my whole life tryna be so liked
That only made him hate me more

[Pre-Chorus: Jack Met]
Did I make you proud?
Did I screw this up?
Sing with me now
It's all that I've got
To know if I did or not (Okay, okay)

[Chorus: Jack Met]
Hey
It's 2085 and we're old as sh!t
Whatever
Hey
I'd hate to have to die 'fore I get my head together
Together
Together
Whatever
(You are not alone, young child, young child)
Whatever
(You are not alone, young child, young child)
Whatever

[Bridge: Jack Met]
Oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh
You gotta get better; you're all that I've got
Oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh
Don't take forever; you're not here for long
Oh-oh-oh-oh ah-ah-ah-ah
You gotta get better; you're all that I've got
Ah-ah-ah

[Verse 5: Jack Met]
I wish I was me, whoever that is
I could just be and not give a sh!t
Hey, I'll be whatever makes you a fan
'Cause I don't know who the hell I am

[Verse 6: Jack Met]
I think it's too late to figure this out
If I could be me, I would've been it by now
Maybe I'm a stone, or big as my house
It looks like our time is running out

[Verse 7: Jack Met]
So if this is me, then I'll do my best
I'll take all the sh!t, so you'll never have to
You can be you, and I'll be the rest
And maybe that's who the hell I am

[Outro: Jack Met]
Ah-ah-ah-ah oh-oh-oh-oh
You gotta get better; you're all that I've got
Ah-ah-ah-ah oh-oh-oh-oh
Don't take forever; you're not here for long
Da-da-da-da da-da-da-da
You gotta get better; you're all that I've got
Da-da-da-da da-da-da-da
But don't take forever; you're not here for long
Mm-mm-mm-mm mm-mm-mm-mm
I gotta get better; I'm all that I've got
Mm-mm-mm-mm mm-mm-mm-mm
For two or three minutes, then I'm gone
