In Five Years Time (For Joel)

In five years time, I’ll be twenty-two and you will be heading for there too.

Maybe by then we’ll have grown up enough to realise we don’t have to grow up.

But for now we’re both stuck at seventeen.

Both searching for the meaning of who we are and who we want to be.

We’re growing older with every passing day, but I feel like I knew less than I did at thirteen.

Let’s set five years as a time to sort it all out, when we finally get there we can change it again.

But for now we’re both stuck at seventeen.

Stuck without a map or a clue for where to go.

Have to learn to leave the fantasies behind for a while, but at least I always have you to come back to when my worlds come falling down.

Cause the truth is we are who we are, even if we don’t know who that is.

For now we’re both just stuck at seventeen.

But not forever.
