Echosmith – Cool Kids lyrics

She sees them walking in a straight line, that's not really her style.
And they all got the same heartbeat, but hers is falling behind.
Nothing in this world could ever bring them down.
Yeah, they're invincible, and she's just in the background.
And she says,

"I wish that I could be like the cool kids,
'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids, like the cool kids
. "

He says I'm talking with a big smile, but they haven't got a clue.
Yeah, they're living the good life, can't see what he is going through
.
They're driving fast cars, but they don't know where they're going.
In the fast lane, living life without knowing
.
And he says,

"I wish that I could be like the cool kids,
'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids, like the cool kids
.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids,
'Cause all the cool kids they seem to get it
.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids, like the cool kids. "

And they said,
"I wish that I could be like the cool kids,
'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids, like the cool kids.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids,
'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids, like the cool kids.
"I wish that I could be like the cool kids,
'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to get it.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids, like the cool kids.

    The first part is about an unconfident girl who can't seem to fit in with the rest of the group. She feels like she "just in the background." She can't ever seem to be part of the main group. She sees other people doing it and feels envy at their ability to do so.

    The second part is about a boy who wants to be worry free like the cool kids. The cool kids have big smiles, no cares, and the freedom to do whatever they want. Even if they have no planned future they have their cars/money/popularity to pull them through so that they can remain clueless.

    This song is meant to represent teenagers feelings on the popular kids. One is from the view point of an unconfident teenage and the other is from the view point of a logical person. Either way they are jealous. That's something we can all understand.

    I think that this song means: who doesn't what to be popular so this song is about a girl who is always in the background and a boy who wants people to see what he is going through. So really this song is saying that they just what to be like the cool kids who seem to have everything they could ever want.
    I myself what to be a cool kid and I want to be popular but that will never happen.
