Born In The Eighties

	  		Am                C             G          C 
I grew up in the 90's at least that's what I tried 
C           G       Am       G 
looking for ways to be satisfied 
Am            C       G          C 
I went to San Diego to try out my luck 
C                   G          Am              G 
came back 12 months later and again I was stuck 
F             C        G           C 
I felt like a goldfish stuck in a bowl 
      F           C              G          F 
I was waiting for something that I could control 
Am      C         G      C 
after 2000 no longer a kid 
C                G       Am              G 
the world didn't end but something else did 
Am                  C             G   C 
when my father takes off I'm already 19 
C           G          Am           G 
he wasn't as happy as I thought he seemed 
   F          C            G             C 
if this is my screenplay I don't like my role 
F             C                  G        F 
these are the things that you just can't control 

although I feel a lot older I'm just 23 
if you're looking for answers don't come to me 
instead of a future I've got a guitar 
but dreaming out loud won't get me far 
still I feel I'm ready for rock'n roll 
there might be something that I can control 
by the time I hit 30 I'll have enough 
of being a twentysomething in love 
my friends will all be married or they will be gone 
me, I'll still be wondering what's going on 
if that's what it takes then I'll sell my soul 
as long as there's something that I can control 

one day I'll wake up and I'll be 38 
doing the things I used to hate 
the trick to forget the bigger picture is when 
you look at everything in close-up as often as you can 
our revolution is covered in mold 
there's only so much you can control 
this is no anthem because anthems are proud 
and pride isn't something that this is about 
I shouldn't care shouldn't care 
but I do and that's sometimes too hard to bear 
still walking the same road with my shoes full of holes 
just waiting for something that we can control 

if I ever reach 50 or 65 
too early to tell if I'll still be alive 
we were born in the 80's and now we are here 
my generation's dream will disappear 
I'm at a graveyard passing the rows 
a silent surrender we'll never get close 

this is my story you swallowed it whole 
about us feeling the need to be in control
