And let's hope one day you'll be able
To understand how ridiculous
This pressure is on you
The pressure put on you

And then things will be clearer
In regards to friends and family
And the right career to choose
The right career move
Yeah, we can only say this day is soon

What will regret and distress exactly do for you?
And with that said, how do we fix this ever-changing mood

And let's say all of this does happen
And then you'll sleep at night
Knowing there's nothing here to lose
There is nothing to prove

But we can only hope that
With moving out comes moving on
Through the best part of your youth
The best part of our you
Yeah, I hope for you this day is coming soon

What will regret and distress exactly do for you?
And with that said, how do we fix this ever-changing mood

    General CommentI am a bit confused on if it is pro-moving out when you are young or anti.

    General CommentI think this song is about the point of life where, after graduating high school, there are a ton of choices and options for a person to make.
    Once you are past it, you can look back at it and understand it all. After you move out, things will be better. But when you are in this situation, there are a lot of mood swings and indecision.
    "I hope for you this day's coming soon" is saying that I hope you get through this period soon and realize everything.
