Sara Kays – Future Kids Lyrics

Future Kids Lyrics – Sara Kays

when i was a kid i made a book
planning out how my future would look
i drew in pictures of houses with views
2 swings in the backyard, one pink & 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 3
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

i was too young when i picked out their names
and wrote them at the top of every page
cause i didn’t know i would grow up to hate
the way that i look & my size & my shape
i wish i could make sure that they’d 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 3
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

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 3
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
