Cool Kids - Echosmith

The Experience: What is being cool? What does it mean to fit in? Wishing to be like someone else just so that we can fit in is very normal...but is it the most important thing'
Wishing "to be like the cool kids" may not always take you to be who you really are...





Music video: in the video we see scenes from the Echosmith band playing their song while showing images of kids in school who don´t seem to fit in.
It´s like a journey to try and figure out who you really are and where you want to be. But, in the end they are all kids just trying to be themselves.

Meaning of Cool Kids: one of our goals in life is discovering who we really are and being happy with ourselves. Yes, there will always be the cool kids who seem to be on a fast lane, having fun and enjoying life at the fullest. But, is that all there is to it? Sometimes it´s better to have a steady and solid direction that will lead you to a real encounter with yourself and to the path of true happiness and fulfillment. 

Ask yourself: Do I wish to be like someone else just to fit int? Am I happy with myself? What choices are my own to make?


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."
