The Lyrics

This is a about me going on a job hunt.
Well I'm so done with school
Yet I can't believe it
I tried to get a job
But I'm so not what they wanted
I'm falling through the cracks
Noboby threw me no slack

Before the patience runs out
I can only give my bestest
To try to get a job in my most favourite restaurant
I know that it's just not my turn to get the job I wanted

I'm in my estate no more, no more
I cannot pay, I'm poor


Well, put your hands up if you're just like me
Never held a job, a blank CV
Student was your full-time job, and you swat, for what?

Listen to the music you've been hearing then you'll really feel
That it's a major tragedy
It's not god-forsaken rights to keep your job job job job job...

So I'm in my estate no more, no more
I cannot pay, I'm sure

There's no need to fabricate my school report
It wasn't great, I'm poor.

I've been spending way too long
Typinging essays on computers
And bending over backwards
Just for C's from my tutors
I studied till the midnight's passed
And so I need a new life and I left

I know it doesn't sound right
But it's not a life worth living
To rid yourself the chance to find the things that you love doing
Well, what I aim to do
Is to find new interest I can turn to

Won't make the same mistake no more, no more
My mind is made, I'm sure

There's no need to try and relate
The time is short
It's my life, I've made my call Jason Mraz - I'm Yours
