lyrics

There’s 7 billion people on this god forsaken planet
And I’m 29 years old and not in love
I’ve got a fairly vast collection of romantic comedies
And I’d like to share them all with somebody
We could watch them all at once
We could enjoy each other’s company while we fiddle with our phones
Discuss how work is going in the comfort of our homes
We could argue over politics while only one of us are stoned
Oh how I really cannot wait to fall in love

While the world’s still turning
I’ll be the one who’s learning
I’m keeping miles ahead of the game
While the world’s still spinning
I’ll be the one who’s winning
I’m keeping miles ahead of the game

There’s trillions of dollars on this god forsaken planet
And I’m standing up on stage begging for a beer
I wish I’d stuck it out and maybe finished studying economics
Because when you have a lot of money
You can buy a lot of beer
We could enjoy each other’s company while we fiddle with our phones
At the restaurant where we always go to eat across the road
I guess I could admit that I should not have quit my job
In the mean time could you please buy the beer

While the world’s still turning
I’ll be the one who’s learning
I’m keeping miles ahead of the game
While the world’s still spinning
I’ll be the one who’s winning
I’m keeping miles ahead of the game
