Lyric "10K Hours"

Every now and then
I wonder why I spend
time following the crowd
They say time's valuable
so we spend it in school
cause they tell us that's how
You build your career
like we're the ones who steer
but I'm wasting my days
I'd rather get a head start
and listen to my heart
but I'm afraid I've changed

And I know I'm not the only one
feels like they're not
where they belong
Waiting to make the world my stage
but I can't cause of my age
It's time to put the books away

I don't wanna stay in school
cause I'd be better off
putting in ten thousand hours
doing what I love
No, I don't wanna stay in school
cause I'd be better off
putting in ten thousand hours
doing what I love

Oh and if I stay
what difference will I make?
It's a shame to grease
then take a couple days
All the time I've lost
saying myself I'm not
Sitting, wondering
what's the opportunity cost
If I left
what if I fall off track
People telling me make sure you got a full back
It's a risk
that I'm willing to take
It could be the best mistake
that I ever made

And I know I'm not the only one
feels like they're not
where they belong
Waiting to make the world my stage
but I can't cause of my age
It's time to put the books away

I don't wanna stay in school
cause I'd be better off
putting in ten thousand hours
doing what I love
No, I don't wanna stay in school
cause I'd be better off
putting in ten thousand hours
doing what I love

I don't wanna stay in school
cause I'd be better off
putting in ten thousand hours
doing what I love
No, I don't wanna stay in school
cause I'd be better off
putting in ten thousand hours
doing what I love

I don't wanna stay in school
cause I'd be better off (be better off)
putting in ten thousand hours
doing what I love (doing what I love, oh)
No, I don't wanna stay in school
cause I'd be better off (I don't wanna stay)
putting in ten thousand hours
doing what I love (doing what I love)
putting in ten thousand hours
doing what I love (do what I love)
putting in ten thousand hours
doing what I love (I'd be doing what I adore)
putting in ten thousand hours
doing what I love (yeah yeah)
putting in ten thousand hours
doing what I love
