Cool Kids - Echosmith



The Experience: I wish that I could be like the cool kids. Cause all the cool kids they seem to fit in.  Man, if I were just one of those cool kids life would be so much better.  It wouldn’t be this hard, this lonely.   

Official Video:  The ordinary or nerdy kids are sad, until Echosmith blows ‘fairy dust’ across them. When they wake up, they lose their inhibitions and find happiness accepting themselves.

The meaning of Cool Kids  The grass is always greener on the other side.  Isn’t it? After looking at the “cool kids,” the girl with the gorgeous body and charming smile or the guy who benches 300 and gets any girl he wants at the party, who wouldn’t want to be them?  That would be the life… if only I were them… if only everybody liked me then I’d be happy; then I’d be really living; then I’d be somebody.  But take a closer look, the “cool kids...they're driving fast cars, but they don't know where they're going. In the fast lane, living life without knowing.”  Maybe the “cool kids” don’t have it so perfect after all? 

Ask yourself: Maybe there is more to life than popularity and looks?  Maybe being you isn’t so bad after all?


LYRICS:
She sees them walking in a straight line, that's not really her style.
And they all got the same heartbeat, but hers is falling behind.
Nothing in this world could ever bring them down.
Yeah, they're invincible, and she's just in the background.
And she says,

"I wish that I could be like the cool kids,
'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids, like the cool kids."

He sees them talking with a big smile, but they haven't got a clue.
Yeah, they're living the good life, can't see what he is going through.
They're driving fast cars, but they don't know where they're going.
In the fast lane, living life without knowing.
And he says,

"I wish that I could be like the cool kids,
'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids, like the cool kids.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids,
'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to get it.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids, like the cool kids."

And they said,
"I wish that I could be like the cool kids,
'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids, like the cool kids.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids,
'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids, like the cool kids.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids,
'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to get it.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids, like the cool kids."

Whoa 

Like the cool kids
