"Already There" as written by and Johnny/takac Rzeznik....
I look outside my window
Everything was blanketed in white
The neighbors pushing cars out
From snow that fell on us last night
Started thinking bout
The things we used to do when we were young
Back when things were simple
And getting up was fun
I couldn't care cause I'm already there

Turn around and face the clock
I'd sit and watch, as time went hopping by
I'm still growing up
My friends are growing old before my eyes
Count the stars above
Wonder when the heavens will subside
Knowing our two worlds
Will someday just collide
I couldn't care cause I'm already there.

Just a boy who's young at heart
His smile was a bit like yours today
Had a wife a kid some strife
Never had to go astray
Happiness abounds
Life was in full swing
At seventeen all the things he wanted
Were things he'd never see

It don't seem fair cause I'm already there

    General CommentI think this song is about wondering where your life goes. As a kid you always think about what its gonna be like when you're an adult and you're so concerned with growing up you don't enjoy youth as you should. This song is saying how he's grown up "He's already there" and its just like yesterday that he wasnt.

    General CommentThe song is about growing up too fast, and not the kind of too fast where you have so many responsibilities at a young age, the kind of too fast where it all flew by very quickly and you're looking back at your whole life so far and wondering how it could have gone by as fast as it did.

    I can relate to this song as I'm sure MANY people can. Have you ever sat around and thought about when you were younger? And all things you used to do with all your friends? I know I have. I'm 20 now, and honestly, I can't believe how fast 20 years has gone by, it literally feels like a blink of an eye now. And like how it says in the song, things were simpler back then, and getting up was fun because you didn't have responsibilities when you younger, life was so easy.
