Not That Smart Lyrics

When I was young I was wise for my age

But now I feel like all of that went down the drain

 

When I was young I could learn from my mistakes

But now it feels like all I get is just a lesson every day

 

And if you say

That one day

Oh it won’t be so hard

Oh I would smile and I would think

That you got a great heart

But you’re not that smart

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

 

At 18 I wanted to smoke my blues away

And I got so good at forgetting I forgot how to be ok

 

And I don’t wanna take pride in my failing state

But the easiest way to survive this place is to sleep right through the day

 

And if you say

That one day

Oh it won’t be so hard

Oh I would smile and I would think

That you got a great heart

But you’re not that smart

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

My mama always said I was a bright girl

Daddy always said I had the stuff

But look at how I turned out

I turned out

 

I used to think people get smart in college

But the safer bet is a bunch of regret and a degree in paying debt

 

I keep saying hey

You’re gonna be ok

Everyone’s a little dumb

And I wonder how long

I can be so wrong

And blame it all on being young

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

not that smart

not that smart
