NIKI – 24 Lyrics

NIKI 24 Lyrics

What do you know?
Suddenly you’re older now
They call you a grown up, with the dog and the bills
And the garden, and the picturesque house

And the pear tree is budding up a third year
And if your mother were still here
The fallen blossoms on the lawn would all disappear

And you’re in love, you pray to God it’s forever
But you look around, and think why try altogether?
But he’s endless, and on my skin like sand on the shore
And that’s enough for me right now anyway at 24

You travel the world, swim under a waterfall
You have everything you ever wanted
You wonder when your dad will call

And you’re in New York again
With your oldest friend
And the basket of bread’s still warm
And that’s enough for me right now anyway at 24

Oh, I know more than I ever have
And yet I know nothing at all
I’m a floating feather, I’m a constant cannonball
I’m somebody’s baby, someone else’s midnight call
I know more than I ever have
And yet nothing at all

Well, what do you know?
Suddenly you’re 24
