I've done things I shouldn't have done
Said things I shouldn't have said
Read things I shouldn't have read
But I'm old
Even though I may look just 19
There are things I've seen
that make me feel like 91
can't be that hard
this has all been done before
this has all been felt before
this has all been said before
I'm not the first human alive

So why the pain?
I said I was sorry
is anyone there to hear my call?
everything's grey
they say that love conquers
it seems to me it does nothing at all
nothing at all

I've been in this life too long
need to go make a change
instead I write dumb songs
am I old?
seems like a lot has happened for 19
God, the things I've seen
I'm surprised I've lived this long

Can't be that hard
this has all been done before
this has all been felt before
this has all been said before
I'm not the first human alive

So why the pain?
I said I was sorry
is anyone there to hear my call?
everything's grey
they say that love conquers
it seems to me it does nothing at all
nothing at all

Love has let me down
Love has let me down

    General Commentthis song is amazing! i love it they are such a small band at the time but still amazing... still i think its basically saying that he isnt the first songwritter and that he knows he is going to have a challenge to become big and he is amazed at all the things he's seen even though he is so young
