"The Age of Worry" as written by and John Mayer....
Close your eyes and clone yourself
Build your heart and army
To defend your innocence
While you do everything wrong

Don't be scared to walk alone
Don't be scared to like it
There's no time that you must be home
So sleep where your darkness falls

Alive in the age of worry
Smile in the age of worry
Go wild in the age of worry
And sing Worry, why should I care?

No you fight is not within
Yours is with your timing
Dream your dreams but don't pretend
Be friends with what you are
Give your heart then change your mind
You're allowed to do it
'Cause God knows it's been done to you
And somehow you got through it

Alive in the age of worry
Rage in the age of worry
Sing out in the age of worry
And sing Worry, why should I care?

Rage in the age of worry
Act your age in the age of worry
And sing Worry, get out of here!

    General CommentI think you're onto something, about his parents here. I think he's saying that while you're young make the most of making mistakes. Be surprised at what you like and enjoy your parents and others being worried about you to the MAX hehe

    I love these lyrics: "No you fight is not within
    Yours is with your timing
    Dream your dreams but don't pretend
    Be friends with what you are
    Give your heart then change your mind
    You're allowed to do it
    'Cause God knows it's been done to you
    And somehow you got through it"

    I think he's saying to just let yourself BE and enjoy whatever life's processes you're experiencing. Perhaps he's giving advice to his own child, in a way that will allow their creativity and self-esttem to flourish and thrive.

    "To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man." - William Shakespeare
