20 Something
SZA Lyrics


How you ain't say you was movin' forward?
Honesty hurts when you're gettin' older
I gotta say I'll miss the way you need me, yeah
Why you ain't say you was gettin' bored?
Why you ain't say I was fallin' short?
How you lead me out so far away?

How could it be? 20 something
All alone still, not a thing in my name
Ain't got nothin', runnin' from love
Only know fear
That's me, Ms. 20 Something
Ain't got nothin', runnin' from love
Wish you were here, oh

Stuck in them 20 somethings, stuck in them 20 somethings
Good luck on them 20 somethings, good luck on them 20 somethings
God bless these 20 somethings
(God bless, oh God bless, oh God bless, oh God bless, oh)
Hopin' my 20 somethings won't end
Hopin' to keep the rest of my friends
Prayin' the 20 somethings don't kill me, don't kill me

Weird, took us so long to separate
I feel, it's permanent like a riptide, this time
Waves crashing fast, I try
Think of the past, please stay

(How could I be?) How could it be? 20 something
All alone still, not a phone in my name
Ain't got nothin', runnin' from love
Only know fear
That's me, Ms. 20 Something
Ain't got nothin', runnin' from love
Wish you were here, oh

Stuck in them 20 somethings, stuck in them 20 somethings
Good luck on them 20 somethings, good luck on them 20 somethings
God bless these 20 somethings
(God bless, oh God bless, oh God bless, oh God bless, oh)
Hopin' my 20 somethings won't end
Hopin' to keep the rest of my friends
Prayin' the 20 somethings don't kill me, kill me

(God bless, oh God bless, oh God bless, oh God bless, oh)
(God bless, oh God bless, oh God bless, oh God bless, oh)
(God bless, oh God bless, oh God bless, oh God bless, oh)
And if it's an illusion, I don't want to wake up
I'm gonna hang on to it
Because the alternative is an abyss, is just a hole, a darkness, a nothingness
Who wants that? you know? So that's what I think about control
And that's my story, and I'm stickin' to it
That was beautiful mommy, that was perfect

Yesss!!! I just turned 30 last December & if there is any advice I can give the younger generations it is this... NEVER let anyone, not any older family members, not even your parents, tell you what you should or shouldn’t do with your life!! MAKE YOUR OWN WAY!!!

If I could go back & change that I would not have went to college & I would have found my own way. I was pressured by my parents into going to college, fortunately they paid for it so I didn’t have any debt when I finished but it was not for me, wasted a bunch of my life & now I kinda feel stuck & like I don’t have the time to start over or the money bc now I have bills & am stressed constantly & don’t have money or the mental capacity even to start over. When bills are hanging over your head it’s hard to think about literally any thing else!

Do it now!! Do not wait until you’re “on your own” bc then life might have you bogged down so hard that you’re like me & feel you CANT start over! Do not have to start over! Do what you want NOW!! An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure! Do not let things go in the wrong direction for someone else’s opinion on what you should do with your life! Doubling back is hard! Get on YOUR path now! It’s YOUR life to live! Not theirs!

& this includes who you choose as a partner too! Male, female, NB, any race, literally YOU have to be with that person! They don’t have to lay down with them at night! Never ever date someone that you really don’t like bc you think it’s someone your parents will “approve of” & do NOT let them tell you not to date someone you like & TREATS YOU WELL bc of some trivial bs like gender or race! IF THEY TREAT YOU WELL... that part is very important now... big emphasis on that! If your parents are telling you you shouldn’t date someone bc they’re horrible to you then that’s one thing but never let them tell you you shouldn’t date someone simply bc they don’t like what they LOOK like!

These two things go hand in hand. Don’t let them choose your partner & don’t let them choose your path! it’s YOUR life, live if FOR YOU!!

I’m sending all my love & good vibes & prayers for the generations coming after me. You’re gonna be great! Don’t let anyone older than you tear you down or tell you any different! Y’all got this!!!

Also, I am so sorry for your loss. I know what you’re going through. I lost my sister on 12/9/2020. She was only 28 years old. The hospital took her life. Keep your head up love! ❤️❤️
