Christian French – golden years Lyrics

I can never get some rest
Oh-oh, oh
Staring at my ceiling
Thinking ’bout the weight that’s on my chest
I’m always worried ’bout what’s next
I think I forgot
How to live in present tense (Present tense)

 Yeah, I’m supposed to be in the prime of my life
But all I can see are the demons I fight
Try to believe that there’s a silver lining
I can’t find it, I don’t wanna be
Spending all my golden years
Climbing all the way to the top
So how the hell’d I wind up here
Tryna be somebody I’m not?
I used to be a lot less gated
Now I’m lost and all frustrated
Trading happiness for tears
And all my golden years

 I could a mile ahead by now
(Somewhere better)
But I’m burning all my daylight wondering how
I can get there
I know I shouldn’t count all of my days under the sun
But I don’t wanna blink and then I wake up and it’s gone
I never really got to be the person that I wanna be
Oh, oh

 I’m supposed to feel like I’m living it right
Is it all in my head? Am I wasting my time
Try to believe that there’s a silver lining
I can’t find it, I don’t wanna be
Spending all my golden years
Climbing all the way to the top
So how the hell’d I wind up here
Tryna be somebody I’m not?
I used to be a lot less gated
Now I’m lost and all frustrated
Trading happiness for tears
And all my golden years

 Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh
And all my golden years
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh
I don’t wanna be

 Spending all my golden years
Climbing all the way to the top
So how the hell’d I wind up here
Tryna be somebody I’m not?
I used to be a lot less gated
Now I’m lost and all frustrated
Trading happiness for tears
And all my golden years
