lyrics

How does this story go?
Not sure I wanna know
Am I a star in the making?
Immortality’s taking its time
Let’s have another drink

I’ll play you one more song
I’ll make it nice and long
“Hey Jude” goes down well with whiskey
Letting go might be risky but I’m
Ready to take a real chance
Explore the mysteries of derivative finance
Face the great unknown
Make monthly payments on a 10-year adjustable loan
Walk out this bar and say
Goodbye Hollywood
Hello Adulthood
I’m ready for you now

When does this story end?
How long must I pretend
This is the life that I dreamed of
If you knew what my self-esteem does late at night
You’d have another drink

I’ll write me one more song
I’ll probably get it wrong
It might not be it entertaining
I’m giving up on explaining myself
What’s there to understand?
I got caught up in supply, forgot about demand
And opportunity cost
I took the road less traveled and I got lost
Don’t need a map to say
Goodbye Hollywood
Hello Adulthood

I’m ready for you
Heading toward you
You’re not the way I thought you’d be
You’re proud and funny
Value for money
A corduroy suit just made for me
And when I stop to think
Soon as I finish my drink
I realize you were always right here, waiting for me

I finally understand
My life’s not gonna turn out the way I planned
It’s a simple fact
Every one trick pony gets a second act
Blow me a kiss and say
Goodbye Hollywood
Hello Adulthood
I’m ready for you now
