about

“Wasted on Sundays” is a song inspired by millennial culture. Some people have great jobs, lots of money, cool homes, and some are like us - artists, musicians, etc. But we’re all going out to brunch on Sunday afternoons, and trying to look like we’ve got the coolest life on instagram haha. Everyone seems to be putting on the same facade, pretending they know exactly what they’re doing, but we’re really all just winging it. Trying to figure everything out and create a life we love.

Listen to "Wasted on Sundays" everywhere music is streamed or purchased. 🥂

lyrics

I’m a little scared to get to where I’m meant to go
Little unprepared I’m just pretending
That I know how it feels
To be killin’ it

Cuz we’re all just trying to look real cool
We’re all just getting half way through
We’re all getting wasted in the afternoon
On Sundays

But we’re all just trying to be the one
With the fancy apartment, son of a gun
Look back one day
And say, “I still had fun”

Try to wake up early every day to get shit done
Workin’ hard is easy, but it’s tough
To get exactly what you want
But I’ll never stop

Cuz we’re all just trying to look real cool
We’re all just getting half way through
We’re all getting wasted in the afternoon
On Sundays

But we’re all just trying to be the one
With the fancy apartment, son of a gun
Look back one day
And say, “I still had fun”

Oooh…
