The fist time I heard this song, I thought that this described my teen-years perfectly! I always wanted to be one of the cool kids. But I was smart, I had really good grades, and I thought the cool kids were dumb and stupid and I couldn't stand them. And also, they all looked and dressed the same. And I did't really liked that. I was never bullied or anything because everybody actually liked me. But you know, I wasn't a cool kid. And this song describes exactly what I used to feel back then!
Now, I know I was super cool -- and still am! -- , just because I was unique and I was who and how I wanted to be.
"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."
