Young and Careless

Official Lyrics

I’ve been staying up late
(Don’t forget to sleep)
Been trying to ignore
All these bad things happening

I’ve been distracting myself
(It’s a lot to take in)
Been trying not to drown in all this information

I don’t have the answers
(There’s so much going wrong)
Just put your headphones on
We’ll scream your favorite song
We’ll scream your favorite song

I feel out of control
(I think that’s pretty normal)
I feel lost and helpless
(That feeling’s quintessential)
Will things get back to normal
(What’s normal anyway?)
Wish I could be young and careless
We’ll take it day by day
Day by day by day
Day by day by day

I’m trying not to stress
(It’s not easy to do)
Just need to caffeinate and have a crisis too

I’ve got existential dread
(At least some things stay the same)
Maybe I can realign my internal reference frame

I’m gonna dance by myself
(Just turn the camera off)
Now crank that volume knob
To scream your favorite song
To scream your favorite song

I feel out of control
(I think that’s pretty normal)
I feel lost and helpless
(That feeling’s quintessential)
Will things get back to normal
(What’s normal anyway?)
Wish I could be young and careless
We’ll take it day by day
(Day by day by day by day)
Day by day by day
(Day by day by day by day)
Day by day by day

(Doo doo doo do)
(Doo doo doo do)
I’m gonna scream
(Doo doo doo do)
(Doo doo doo do)
I’m gonna dance
(Doo doo doo do)
(Doo doo doo do)
This is my theme
(Doo doo doo do)
(Doo doo doo do)
Cause I might not get another chance
(Doo doo doo do)
(Doo doo doo do)

(Doo doo doo do)
(Doo doo doo do)
I’m gonna scream
(Doo doo doo do)
(Doo doo doo do)
I’m gonna dance
(Doo doo doo do)
(Doo doo doo do)
This is my theme
(Doo doo doo do)
(Doo doo doo do)
Cause I might not get another chance
(Doo doo doo do)
(Doo doo doo do)

I feel out of control
(I think that’s pretty normal)
I feel lost and helpless
(That feeling’s quintessential)
Will things get back to normal
(What’s normal anyway?)
Wish I could be young and careless
We’ll take it day by day
(Day by day by day by day)
Day by day by day
(Day by day by day by day)
Day by day by day
