I tried the world on for size just the other day
Like my dad's shoes it was way too big for me
I looked around and tried to make sense of it all
But there was nothing that I could clearly see

Nothing tangible or nameable I could find
Like undeveloped search images in my brain
Destruction and confusion and jade-colored skies
I don't feel different but I know that I have changed

Isn't being almost twenty
Isn't this time a-plenty
To get acquainted with this life?
Yet everything you do leads to your demise
And it's guaranteed global temperatures are gonna' rise
Because there's nowhere to go but up from here...
Nowhere to go but up from here

I tried the world on for size just the other day
Like my sister's jeans it was was way too small for me
I looked around and tried to make sense of it all
But something disallows a girl to be free

I gotta' leave, but where the hell can I go?
I ask myself on a January day
It's raining hard but not a flake of snow in sight
And it's hard not to envision disarray

Isn't being almost twenty
Isn't this time a-plenty
To get acquainted with this life?
Yet everything you do leads to your demise
And it's guaranteed global temperatures are gonna' rise
Because there's nowhere to go but up from here...
Nowhere to go but up from here

I'm still living at home when it occurs to me
That I really may not know everything
I hear my favorite song and dopamine floods my brain
I get the chills but I'm not allowed to sing

I try to speak but my friends don't understand me
And then I laugh like everything and all is set
I'm almost twenty and I'm drifting away
And so this is the best you're gonna' get

Isn't being almost twenty
Isn't this time a-plenty
To get acquainted with this life?
Yet everything you do leads to your demise
And it's guaranteed global temperatures are gonna' rise
Because there's nowhere to go but up from here...
Nowhere to go but up from here
