Slow down, you crazy child You're so ambitious for a juvenile But then if you're so smart, then tell me Why are you still so afraid?
Where's the fire, what's the hurry about? You'd better cool it off before you burn it out You've got so much to do And only so many hours in a day
But you know that when the truth is told That you can get what you want or you get old You're gonna kick off before you even Get halfway through When will you realize, Vienna waits for you
Slow down, you're doing fine You can't be everything you want to be Before your time Although it's so romantic on the borderline tonight Tonight, Too bad but it's the life you lead You're so ahead of yourself that you forgot what you need Though you can see when you're wrong, you know You can't always see when you're right. you're right
You've got your passion, you've got your pride But don't you know that only fools are satisfied? Dream on, but don't imagine they'll all come true When will you realize, Vienna waits for you?
Slow down, you crazy child And take the phone off the hook and disappear for awhile It's all right, you can afford to lose a day or two When will you realize, Vienna waits for you? And you know that when the truth is told That you can get what you want or you can just get old You're gonna kick off before you even get half through Why don't you realize, Vienna waits for you When will you realize, Vienna waits for you?
I sang this for a talent show in high school but still find it relatable in a lot of ways now
"She said where you wanna go? How much you wanna risk? I'm not looking for somebody with some superhuman gifts Some superhero Some fairytale bliss Somebody I can turn to Somebody I can kiss I want something just like this"
"Somebody just like this" - The Chainsmokers
Given the events of the last couple of days, the lyrics are resonating with me in some interesting ways.
