Packing my bags and heading out on my own
making choices that will shape
the future days I have to come
and I could choose the easy road but I have to be strong cause
I don't want to spend a lifetime knowing that I've chosen wrong

And it's so bittersweet these decisions I must make
throwing one choice to the wolves for the other one I make
and that itself seems wrong to me cause I am still so young
how can I choose right when my life has just begun

Is it so bad to be unsure now woah ooo ooo
age is supposed to clear things up but my future is fading out
those who are older say my mind should be made up
headed on some path to greatness but I think that's messed up
cause there's so many options and I want to try them all
but now for some strange reason my back's against the wall

And it's so bittersweet these decisions I must make
throwing one choice to the wolves for the other one I make
and that itself seems wrong to me cause I am still so young
how can I choose right when my life has just begun

Is it so bad to be unsure now woah ooo ooo
age is supposed to clear things up but my future is fading out.

    General CommentTo me, this song is about how parents and adults have such high expectations for teenagers to do something great... and the singer is disagreeing with it. Just my 2 cents.
