I think I was better off when
I didn't put my faith in
you and your escapades.
Me and my serenades
never got me anywhere.
I think I learned a lot, I swear.
I'm pretty glad that this is over,
'cause I'll be smarter when I'm older.

Yeah, I'll be smarter when I'm older.

I know the sidelines like the back of my hand.
Not part of my plan,
but I guess that's who I am now.
I used to say I'd wait forever,
sticking strong to these endeavors.
I'm pretty sad that this is over,
but I'll be smarter when I'm older.

Yeah I'll be smarter when I'm older.

I spent all last night thinking
if I were older I'd be
drinking these thoughts away.
Save 'em for a better day.
Jealousy is my only friend,
but I know that in the end
I won't be mad that this is over,
'cause I'll be smarter when I'm older.

Yeah, I'll be smarter when I'm older.
Yeah, I'll be smarter when I'm older.
Hope that I'm smarter when I'm older.
