Your making this today of all the things you haven't done yet
Your drivin everyone crazy, are you having any fun yet?
Mother says you auta get married
Shrink says here's a little blue pill
To young for your mid-life crisis
Mayor says your over the hill

*Chorus*
There's nothing wrong with you
The simple life gets complicated
There's nothing you can do
Just enjoy the view, be glad you made it

Your making making resolutions and it isn't even new years
You could try a new religion
You could wait until the dust clears
Friends say your way to cheesey
Shrink says see ya next week
Goo goo says control your breathing
Your afraid you might have peeked!

*Chorus*

There's nothing wrong with you
The simple life gets complicated
There's nothing you can do
Just enjoy the view, be glad you made it

'cause things could be better (things could be better)
'cause things could be worse (things could be worse)
'cause life could be charmed and cursed
There's fast, slow, and strong
No reverse

Your making this today of all the things you haven't done yet
Your drivin everyone crazy
Are you having any fun yet!?

*Chorus*
There's nothing wrong with you
The simple life gets complicated
There's nothing you can do
Just enjoy the view, be glad you made it

There's nothing wrong with you
The simple life gets over rated
There's nothing you can do
Just enjoy the view, be glad you made it
This far, ohh yeah.
