The Lyrics

Tell me what happened to my life?
Seems like my best years have passed by
I guess I'm in no mood to party
'cause I feel just way too damn old
I can't help but feel a little sad
thinking about old times I've had
If I hadn't blown the first twenty nine years
I might not feel this old

So, tonight, I'll drive around this town
and let the past chase me around
Youth is gone and now it seems to me it was a waste
Now I'm thirty
now I'm thirty
now I'm thirty
now I'm thirty

I'm disgusted a bit by me
I let life make me frown
Guess I expected a bit too much from life
that's why I feel let down
I thought I did all that I could do
but maybe not, 'cause dreams fell through
If I hadn't blown the first twenty nine years
my life, it might be cool

So, tonight, I'll drive around this town
and let the past chase me around
Youth is gone and now it seems to me it was a waste
now I'm thirty (X2)
Now, I'm thirty
now I'm thirty
now I'm thirty

Tell me what happened to my life?
I act like that I have died
But the fact is that I'm still alive and
I have chose to feel sad and old
And you know it really ain't that bad
so much fun I still can have
For twenty nine years I have been practicing
now's time for the real show

Tomorrow, I will drive around this town
and listen to a 90's sound
'cause thirty is eighteen with twelve years experience
hey I'm thirty!

Hey, I'm thirty!

Life has been hard
but now I'm thirty, the fun will start!

Billy, Billy, Billy! I'm 10 years older than you, and my 30s were fab! (Much better than my 20s)...I'm going to share my favourite piece of advice with you:

If you don't live life on the edge, you're taking up too much space!

Thanks man. Yeah, I went through my 'turning 30' depression, but I'm over it now.
