lyrics

By now, I could've had my shit together, if I'd only tried
I could've had a house and a car and a cat and a baby
And a boy who would love me, maybe, but I didn't try
No, I didn't try hard enough for it

By now, I could've had my shit together, if I'd only tried
I could've had a job and a dog and a place in the city
And a boy who would call me pretty, but I didn't try
No, I didn't try hard enough for it

I never thought that I would be this old with no clue where to go
I never thought that it'd be me who was still floundering
So scared of life, scared of everything, so good at hiding from the world
Dragging my feet, scraping my knees

By now, I could've had my shit together, if I'd only tried
I could've had the life that I wanted, the way that it should be
But instead, I am stuck with maybes, 'cause I didn't try
No, I didn't try
I'm too scared to try
No, I didn't try hard enough for it
