Manage me, I'm a mess
Turn a page, I'm a book half unread
I wanna be laughed at, laughed with just because
I wanna feel weightless and that should be enough

But I'm stuck in this fucking rut,
Waiting on a second hand pick me up
And I'm over getting older
If I could just find the time
Then I would never let another day go by
I'm over getting old

Maybe it's not my weekend but it's gonna be my year
And I'm so sick of watching while the minutes pass as I go nowhere
And this is my reaction to everything I fear
'Cause I've been going crazy
I don't want to waste another minute here

Make believe that I impress
That every word by design turns a head
I wanna feel reckless, wanna live it up just because (Just because)
I wanna feel weightless 'cause that would be enough

If I could just find the time then I would never let another day go by
I'm over getting old

Maybe it's not my weekend but it's gonna be my year
And I'm so sick of watching while the minutes pass as I go nowhere
And this is my reaction to everything I fear (Everything I fear)
'Cause I've been going crazy
I don't want to waste another minute here

This could be all that I've waited for (I've waited, I've waited for)
And this could be everything, I don't wanna dream anymore

Maybe it's not my weekend but it's gonna be my year
And I've been going crazy, I'm stuck in here (I'm stuck in here)

Maybe it's not my weekend but it's gonna be my year (it's gonna be my year)
And I'm so sick of watching while the minutes pass as I go nowhere (go nowhere)
And this is my reaction to everything I fear (everything I fear)
'Cause I've been going crazy
I don't want to waste another minute here

    This song is ace! As a metal-head, I'd normally listen to things a lot heavier, but I love this song! It's fab! So relevant to many, many things in life, that goes for everyone! It's just one of those songs that you need to follow the advice of! Seriously! Ace! Alex Gaskarth comes up with some of the best lyrics, I've got to admit! I could carry on writing about how much I love this song - and to be fair, I think that I will! The band as a whole are generally excellent, but this song, along with many others, just captures how truly amazing and talented they really are! (Along with many other talented bands and musicians!) Truly inspirational to me - and many others, I'm sure - I'd love to be able to write lyrics that are THIS relevant, true and great! Sorry about the massive essay, but I'm sure that you will all agree that it is sincerely worth it! All Time Low! Yes!

    Weightless basically defines my life.. It's about realising all the time you've wasted on pointless things, and becoming determined to change your attitude and so the way you live your life. Take chances, jump on opportunities life throws at you, make the most of everything!

    i absoutlely love this song!!! its so empowering to let go and be free. You just gotta live life to the fullest and if you get tripped or broken along the way you just gotta get back up and say you are not worth what some people say you are and move on. ALL TIME LOW ROCKS!!! woo!!

    I love this band and their music is amazing.
    The song is pretty much saying be yourself don’t let anything stop you
