10K Hours

Lyrics: 

Every now and then I wonder why I spend time following the crowd

They say time is 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 of change

 

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 because 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 10, 000 Hours doing what I love

No, I don't wanna stay in school cause I'd be better off

Putting in 10, 000 Hours doing what I love

 

Oh and if I stay what difference will it make?

It's a shame degrees don't take a couple days

All the time I've lost, tying myself in knots

Sitting wondering what's the opportunity cost?

 

If I left, what if I fall off track?

People telling me make sure you got a fallback

It's a risk that I'm willing to take

It could be the best mistake that I ever made

 

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 because 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 10, 000 Hours doing what I love

No, I don't wanna stay in school cause I'd be better off

Putting in 10, 000 Hours doing what I love

 

I don't wanna stay in school cause I'd be better off

Putting in 10, 000 Hours doing what I love

No, I don't wanna stay in school cause I'd be better off

Putting in 10, 000 Hours doing what I love
