Wasting My Young Years
by London Grammar

You cross this line
Do you find it hard to say it with me tonight?
I've walked these miles but I've walked in straight line
You'll never know what was there to be
Fine

I'm wasting my young years
It doesn't matter here
I'm chasing more ideas
It doesn't matter here

Baby
We are
We are
Maybe I'm wasting my young years
Baby
We are
We are
Baby, I'm wasting my young years

Don't you know that it's all I feel?
I wouldn't worry, you have all your love
I've heard it takes some time to get it behind

I'm wasting my young years
It doesn't matter here
I'm chasing more ideas
It doesn't matter here

Baby
We are
We are
Maybe I'm wasting my young years
Baby
We are
We are
Baby, I'm wasting my young years

I don't know what you want
Don't leave me hanging on
Don't know what you want
Don't leave me hanging on

Been working a 40 hour per week desk job and been listening to this song since it came out in 2013. I was 25 and feeling that I was indeed wasting my young years but thought that it would all be worth it in the future. Didn't happen. Now that I'm close to 31 I look back and all I see is time either spent studying, working student jobs or just working. I wish I had done a lot of things differently , I wish I would have travelled more, met more new people, spent less time behind a desk or a computer thinking "I still have time to live my life, I just have to finish this paper, this episode, this 100000000th whatsapp message, this final exam". Before you know it time is up and you realise you've spent your entire 20s hoping for a perfect future instead of enjoying the great present. I hope at least one person reads this and decides to go out more, do a little bit more of what they really like and enjoy their young years while they still have the opportunity to.

my life long friend and I had this exact same conversation last night. Then, today this song shows up on youtube I listen to this song and various versions (remixes and acoustic versions) and tear up. We discussed how we can't work for other peoples dreams of being rich and that it was instilled in us at a young age that if you don't go to college you will pretty much never be successful and now we both have degrees and jobs, and we're closing in on 30 years old wishing we had done things different too.

31 is still very young. there is this expectation that you need to see the world and do everything before you are 30 or something. the reality is that you need to survive and take care of the bills. a lot of people now (before the pandemic) that are out partying, traveling and living large are sacrificing their time to make money, go to school and build career experience. all the fun stuff is great in moderation but all that stuff is only a part of life. there is plenty of time to live life and do adventurous stuff. the extra maturity you have gained could help you get more out of it, than what you would have in your 20's. the big take away is to realize your 30's and further have potential for amazing and even better things. the best is yet to come is a cliche but true.
