Goo Goo Dolls – Already There lyrics

I look outside my window
Everything was blanketed in white
The neighbors pushing cars out
From snow that fell on us last night
Started thinking 'bout
The things we used to do when we were young
Back when things were simple
And getting up was fun

I couldn't care, 'cause I'm already there
I'm already there, and I'm ready there

Turn around and face the clock
I'd sit and watch, as time went hoppin' by
I'm still growing up
My friends are growing old before my eyes
Count the stars above
Wonder when the heavens will subside
Knowing our two worlds
Will someday just collide

I couldn't care, 'cause I'm already there.
I'm already there, and I'm ready there

Just a boy who's young at heart
His smile was a bit like yours today
Had a wife, a kid, some strife
Never had to go astray
Happiness evolved
Life was in full swing
At 17, all the things he wanted
Were things he'd never seen

It don't seem fair, 'cause I'm already there
I'm already there, and I'm ready there
