47 AJR Lyrics That Will Change Your Life

In honor of the release of AJR's newest album, "Neotheater", I've compiled a list of some of the most eloquent, clever, and just downright mind-boggling lyrics in the history of AJR. Please enjoy, and if you've never heard an AJR song, please rethink your musical tastes.

All our troubles gone / Like when we were young / Take me back to where we all began / Here we are again / Like we should've been / Oh my lady, can I have this dance? - Infinity

And I wonder, is something in the water making wanting more? / Make me wanting more / A heartbreak and a hundred red balloons / Now I'm off the floor - My Calling​

Let's toast the ones who got away / Three cheers for what we didn't say / Well, if it matters / Here's some flowers / Cause we're livin' on love / Let's toast to everything we've got / Let's dance for everything we're not - Livin' On Love

It's bullshit and we know it / Like a flower sheltered in stone / With no chance of regrowing - The World Is A Marble Heart

Good music's still good / Even if no one is watching - Big Idea

We will learn from the giants / Before the giants learn from them - The Green And The Town

A year from now, we won't be lovers / We'll just be suits and ties and shoes / And we will grow without our parents / Cause soon we will be giants too - The Green And The Town

I've seen almost every side of the industry / Except the one we've been working seven years to see / Just some kids with pro tools a mic and a big idea, but no IDs - Big Idea

 You cannot rush / What can't be timed - Growing Old On Bleecker Street

 Sometimes I wonder if we matter at all / If we're not written down / Who will remember now? - Growing Old On Bleecker Street

If the world gets me, where I'm s'posed to be / Will I know I've made it, then? / It's so hard / So can we skip to the good part? - The Good Part

Mom and Dad, they have a good life / But what the hell am I gonna do with mine? - The Good Part

My habits, they hold me like a grudge / I promise I won't budge - Weak

Won't you help me sober up? Growing up, it made me numb / And I just wanna feel something again - Sober Up

My favorite color is you / You're vibrating at my frequency - Sober Up

Recently he said that she said that we said some shit that you wouldn't believe / Recently he said that she said that we said that he said some shit about me - Drama 

I grew up on Disney / But this don't feel like Disney / You say I turned out fine / I think I'm still turning out - Turning Out

I'm a little kid, and so are you / Don't you go and grow up before I do / I'm a little kid with so much doubt / Do you wanna be there to see how I turn out? -Turning Out

I'm not narcissistic / I'm just high off the music / And I don't wanna miss it / But I wouldn't stop you - No Grass Today

 Listen to my aching heart / Quick, before you skip the song / We are human after all / And we don't stay for long - Three-Thirty

 Someone told me to be selfless / But we are helpless / Without attention

 I feel so broke up / I wanna go home - Call My Dad

 It don't matter what my name is / I don't got one I'm not famous, no / And I don't hate it, no / You never heard of me / Or the weird shit I do and say / That's my favorite thing / That I'm not famous, no - I'm Not Famous

 Who I am is in these episodes / So don't tell me that it's just a show - Netflix Trip

 Way up, way up, way up to the moon / Boy it's good to know I got a bud like you - Bud Like You

 Should I go for more clicks this year? / Or should I follow the click in my ear? - Come Hang Out

 And all my friends say come hang out / Cause you're outta your mind / You're working so damn hard / You forgot what you like / And come hang out / Don't you leave us behind / But I'll be there next time - Come Hang Out

 Should I hang my head low? / Should I bite my tongue? Or should I march with every stranger from Twitter to get shit done? - Burn the House Down

 Can I truly love the art when I hate the artist? / But, all my role models are on TV for the wrong reasons - Role Models

 Is it normal to stand here and wish that I was back at home? / Is it normal to tell her I can't be normal anymore? - Normal

 Oh, I'm insecure, I'm insecure / I think I like what I'm supposed to - Pretender 

I wanna be next up forever / Find a way to never hit my peak - Next Up Forever

I know I gotta grow up sometime / But I'm not fuckin' ready yet - Next Up Forever

I bet it's always gonna stay this fun / I bet it's easy staying away from drugs / I bet our parents always stay in love - Birthday Party

We had to work a bit more hard / Only just to get a little bit less far - 100 Bad Days 

Maybe a hundred bad days made a hundred good stories / A hundred good stories make me interesting at parties - 100 Bad Days

Oh no, don't throw out my Legos / What if i cant let go? / What if i come back home? Back home? / Can we keep my Legos at home? / Cause I wanna move out I don't wanna move on - Don't Throw Out My Legos

What doesn't kill you / Makes you ugly / Life gives you lemons / At least it gave you something - Break My Face

I think I probably wasn't in love with you / I think I probably loved the idea of you - Turning Out, Pt. ii

Is this all that life's about? / Trying to love how you turn out? / I don't love it much at all - Turning Out, Pt. ii

 You wonder what they did before inventing the phone / Yeah how could anyone face the quiet alone - The Entertainment's Here

 I've been so good, I've been workin' my ass off / I've been so good, still I'm lonely and stressed out / I've been so good, I've been so good this year / I've been so good but it's still getting harder, I've been so good where the hell is the karma? - Karma

 The universe works in mysterious ways / But I'm starting to think it ain't workin' for me - Karma

 And every star / That I used to mock / Was probably paid / Am I the same? - Beats

 Yeah, I'm not sick / I'm just kinda different / Oh different, so different / They tell us to be different / But no one told me I could go too far - Wow, I'm Not Crazy

 But dear Winter / I hope you like your name / I'm hoping that someday, I can meet you on this Earth / But shit, I gotta meet your mom first - Dear Winter

 They wanted heaven from me / I gave 'em hell / Now they want something bigger - Finale (We Can't Wait To See What You Do Next)

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
