twentysomething lyrics – jamie cullum

after years of expensive education
a car full of books and antic*p*tion
i’m an expert on shakespeare and that’s a h*ll of a lot
but the world don’t need scholars as much as i thought
maybe i’ll go traveling for a year
finding myself, or start a career
could work the poor, though i’m hungry for fame
we all seem so different but we’re just the same
maybe i’ll go to the gym, so i don’t get fat
aren’t things more easy, with a tight six pack
who knows the answers, who do you trust
i can’t even separate love from l*st
maybe i’ll move back home and pay off my loans
working nine to five, answering phones
but don’t make me live for friday nights
drinking eight pints and getting in fights
maybe i’ll just fall in love
that could solve it all
philosophers say that that’s enough
there surely must be more
love ain’t the answer, nor is work
the truth eludes me so much it hurts
but i’m still having fun and i guess that’s the key
i’m a twentysomething and i’ll keep being me
