I wish I found some better sounds no one's ever heard,
I wish I had a better voice that sang some better words,
I wish I found some chords in an order that is new,
I wish I didn't have to rhyme every time I sang,

I was told when I get...

    The Song is about how when they were little they had a care free life, no stress, nothing to bug them, but when they got older it got harder and life got difficult so they are saying they want to go back in time and be kids again.

    It's about a guy forced by reality to wake up and realize dreams are for those can uphold them and make something out of them. Not live falsely within them and pretend one doesn't have to work and become like every other dream smashed person out there in the world trying believe the BS lies people have been telling them in their younger ages. This tune displays how "reality" has tried to make them products of a black and white society at an early age, resulting in them wishing that they could dream in color in peace without having to regret it.

    My view on this is similar to others. They wish they could go back to being simple kids, but that's not all. The part about being a "Blurry Face and I care what you think" is about the vision of the media. They worry about how others think of them, and are scared about how people view them as online, and not just about who they are. It's important to them that they look presentable and not "crazy" as the world classifies anyone who is different.

    The song is about going back to the way things used to be. Before things became complicated, and just remember the good past.

    It means that when your young nothing seems to bother you have no worries. But as you grow older your worries seem to grow and you feel like all the happy times you had as a child are gone. It feels like you were the happiest when you were a child but now there's so much pressure to be "grown-up" and "mature". All the pressure makes you stressed hence the name of the song.

    The song is of the past and wishful thinking. Not to deep, a youthful realization.

    I think this song is about their childhood and how everything was carefree. Then they grew up and things started to get harder in life and they wanted to go back to being children.

    I think the song is about missing your childhood when there were little to no worries or stresses. He/ she wants to go back in time and relive the good 'ol days. Now with needing to make money it's more stressing.

    This song is about them wanting to go figuratively back in time, "wish we could turn back time," they wish that life was as easy as it used to be. They want life to be fun, and not stressful. They used to play and have fun, then they grew up and realized they needed to get a job and make some money, "wake up you need to make money!"
