Future kids lyrics
When I was a kid, I made a book
Planning out how my future would look
I drew in pictures of houses with views
Two swings in the backyard, one pink and one blue
Now that I’m older, I wish I could see
A world where that still made sense to me

‘Cause if my future kids end up like me
They won’t get to sleep earlier than three
They’ll be thinking ’bout how they can be
Better than they are, taking it too far
Trying to change the things I love the most about them
And I don’t think I could ever stand to see that happen, oh

I was too young when I picked out their names
Then wrote them at the top of every page
‘Cause I didn’t know I would grow up to hate
The way that I look and my size and my shape
I wish I could make sure that they never see
Themselves in the same way that I see me

‘Cause if my future kids end up like me
They won’t get to sleep earlier than three
They’ll be thinking ’bout how they can be
Better than they are, taking it too far
Trying to change the things I love the most about them
And I don’t think I could ever stand to see that happen, oh

I’ll keep the book in a safe place
‘Cause I’m not quite ready to throw it away

‘Cause if my future kids end up like me
They won’t get to sleep earlier than three
They’ll be thinking ’bout how they can be
Better than they are, taking it too far
Trying to change the things I love the most about them
And I don’t think I could ever stand to see that happennn
