John Hughes - As It Is

How long's it been since I was young?
Fifteen years since wooden guns,
Six years since playing board games was anywhere near fun
And it'd be over-dramatic to say the world'll forget about me on its way
But that's not always enough to keep cursing the whole of the Earth at bay

No one knows me like John Hughes did
I think we all relate to that

Because we've all felt unsung from every mouth and every lung
We've all felt that life was easier when we were young

How long's it been since 'overwhelmed' was still a word I couldn't spell,
Let alone the most obvious choice for a word to define myself?
I never thought I'd be this young a man to be doubting the cards in these hands
That jitter and shake half the time from the coffee I drink and rely on to stand

No one knows me like John Hughes did
I think we all relate to that

Because we've all felt unsung from every mouth and every lung
We've all felt that life was easier when we were young

Because we've all felt unsung from every mouth and every lung
We've all felt that life was easier when we were young

There'll be days when we lose our way like a feather
(What are we destined for?)
But we all live and we die in this cold, cold world together.

(What are we destined for?)
What are we destined for?

No one knows me like John Hughes did
(Cause we've all felt)
No one knows me like John Hughes did
(Unsung from every mouth and every lung)

We've all felt
(No one knows me like John Hughes did)
That life was easier when we were young

We've all felt unsung from every mouth and every lung
(No one knows me like John Hughes did)
Cause we've all felt
(No one knows me like John Hughes did)
That life was easier when we were young
