Man, I was on the bus discman in my hand banging biggie, with a bottle of//
passion pop in the backpack ciggies in the pocket//
penning raps thinking damn when im big enough to rock it//
ima rock it till wheels fall of it, yup//

high school finished, every night, we were getting blazed//
one by one rocking p-plates, cruising to the j's//
at the time never crossed our mind that those were the days//
weekday benders man, weekends were the same//
found freedom on the road, found money in the sofa//
wasn't much, so a 6-pack'd wanna tide me over//
probably get a slab sorted if we pooled it all together//
still be on the beach at midnight depending on the weather//
as much time as forever, the shared times brought us together//
the same times make the ties hard to sever//
and i honestly couldn't ask for better//
memories except for parts that i cant remember, fuck it//
20 going on 20 , forever young at heart//
didn't matter, whether parks, or the studio or bars//
man i was right there, look again here we are//
seems like i blink once and a lifetime past, and now//
old mates turning new leaves//
killing it from worksites to corporate life, im living a movie//
like 8 mile, nah billy madison of uni//
with exams in a few weeks, id settle with a few c's//
but thats the life i chose//
opted for the scenic road left the highway alone//
i guess im learning as i go, these the ropes//
feeling right at home with being the oldest kid i know//

im tripping like that was just the other day//
couldn't be that long ago shit its no way//
wonder what my younger self would look at me and say//
yea you doing alright, but im happy on the bus//
never really notice till the whole scene changed//
everybody tied down i just wanna fly away//
theres no need to wonder what the younger me would say//
you can keep your obligations, im happy on the bus//

pretty girls, god bless em, no question//
kept em close, letter passing in class, if i slept through lessons//
we'd share notes, never good with the parents//
the bloodshot eyes don't make for good first impressions//
don't wanna think of the prepaid credit i spent//
on text messages im amazed by the lengths that i went to impress em//
rarely committed, never fully in it when i was//
barely listened when they'd call to call it off//
was already onto the next, broke a couple hearts//
and regret to this day, but i guess thats the way//
that it goes, and go it did man, round and back//
till that one came along that made my heart collapse/
its bittersweet when you catch it, like sunshine in winter, shit i//
thought i was killing with a futon and dimmer switch!//
but thats how it was, noone knew different//
fun loving sinners just young dumb and innocent, now//
my mates putting wedding rings on their girls fingers//
down for the count, babies in the world with em//
while im still up at 8 pushing through a whirlwind of//
strong mixes, scar tissue, cheap rack, fast women//
and its a ride i don't want to get off//
but i don't wanna be the last to leave when it all stops//
shit, i guess change is fact of life//
have a tough time trying to balance my age and what im acting like//

im tripping like that was just the other day//
couldn't be that long ago shit its no way//
wonder what my younger self would look at me and say//
you doing alright, but im happy on the bus//
never really notice till the whole scene changed//
everybody tying down i just wanna fly away//
and theres no need to wonder what the younger me would say//
you can keep your obligations, im happy on the bus//

everybody getting serious, and i don't think im ready yet//
not sure if il ever be, wouldn't put a heavy bet//
on it, wouldn't promise anybody that i care about//
that im prepared to cut my hair or wash my mouth out//
shit i don't use alarm clocks//
cant cook, cant clean, cant read stocks, cant keep watch//
of my health, and my finances are a mess//
but i still feel happy as it gets, and if im honest//
it all good, i got high hopes for the future//
id be long gone if i hit it like we used to//
been over clubbing, not really missing much//
in that regard, guess its just getting older sucks//
its a tough pill to swallow but no kicking up a fuss//
but i guess its kinda dope how full circle shit comes//
cause, these new adventures keep me interested as fuck/
and its some other kids turn to bang biggie on the bus//
so thanks for the memories, i hate to say goodbye//
but all good things come to an end, well meet again//
somewhere in the next life, fingers crossed next ride//
il be able to savour it before its in hindsight//
and thats word to the kids, in a sprint to be grownups//
my only advice would be live for the moment//
you got a whole life to get it right//
for now its life after death or ready to die, you decide//

im tripping like that was just the other day//
couldn't be that long ago shit its no way//
wonder what my younger self would look at me and say//
you doing alright, but im happy on the bus//
never really notice till the whole scene changed//
everybody tying down i just wanna fly away//
and theres no need to wonder what the younger me would say//
you can keep your obligations, im happy on the bus//
