Lyrics recruitment season – ​jenny nuo

It’s recruitment season again, how I wish I could fit in
And how I wish I felt comfortable, be myself in my own skin
Look around at all these perfect chalices filled to the brim
I’m just untempered glass, they’re made of porcelain

Say, I’m fine, no, I didn’t lose my mind
I’m a narcissist who’s insecure all the time
Skip my classes, then I wonder, why I’m so behind
Somehow, I always feel alone and undefined

I guess wisdom comes with age, but my time has been a waste
‘Cause I’m never good enough to feel like I’m okay
I ask my older friends how they feel about the world being so gray
How can they say that
Feels like I won’t ever have what it takes
What it takes, what it takes

Can I be honest I don’t really know what’s going on right now
Did I ever feel like I belong
I’m a little fish in a very big pond and everybody else is in control
I don’t know what’s going on

Say I’m fine, no, I didn’t lose my mind
I’m a narcissist who’s insecure all the time
Skip my classes, then I wonder, why I’m so behind
Somehow, I always feel alone and undefined

I guess wisdom comes with age, but my time has been a waste
‘Cause I’m never good enough to feel like I’m okay
I ask my older friends how they feel about the world being so gray
How can they say that
Feels like I won’t ever have what it takes
What it takes, what it takes

Back in high school I thought I’d be smarter, prettier in college
Maybe I was a better swimmer when the pond was smallest

It’s recruitment season again, they are asking for my advice
Thought I’d be put together when I set into the spotlight
Hate being admired when I’m really not a ..
And time hasn’t expired, I just grew too fast
And they know that I know that I don’t know anything at all
I don’t know anything at all

I guess wisdom comes with age, but my time has been a waste
‘Cause I’m never good enough to feel like I’m okay
I ask my older friends how they feel about the world being so gray
How can they say that
Feels like I won’t ever have what it takes

I’ll never have what it takes
Will I ever feel okay
Will I ever have what it takes…
