Primer 55 – Tricycle lyrics

I wake up late for school and I run like hell to try and catch the bus
Never thought about it but those days meant more than I thought they would.
Hanging out late with my friends, having fun like punks will do.
I never thought those days would ever end so soon.
But time goes by and all your views on life, they start to change.
When you see the world for what it is, it never looks the same.
You walk around with a chip on your shoulder.
Cause everyday you know you're just getting older.

I never thought it would be
It's just a way of life
I never though it would be
Such a petty life

I wake up late for work and I drive like hell
Trying to make ends meat.
Gotta borrow money cause my baby don't have shit to eat.
Staying up late, got two jobs, work my fingers to the bone.
Spending more time at those jobs than I ever spend at home.
And I can't help but feel the stress, all my bills keep adding up.
Its days like this, wish I was a kid, because I抳e had enough.
Look in the mirror; see my face getting older
Cause everyday I see feel the world getting colder.

I never thought it would be
It's just a way of life
I never thought it would be
Such a petty life
All of my memories keep coming back again
All my securities I抣l never have again
Wanting so much to be, to be myself again
Give it all back to me
I want it back

Bring it back
Bring it back to me
The innocence I felt
The happiness I felt
No matter what the cost
And everything I抳e lost

(repeat chorus)

It's how I live my life, so fuck you,
Get the fuck off my back.
