Jimmy Eat World
I felt for sure last night
That once we said goodbye
No one else will know these lonely dreams
No one else will know that part of me
I’m still driving away
And I’m sorry every day
I won’t always love these selfish things
I won’t always live
Not stopping
It was my turn to decide
I knew this was our time
No one else will have me like you do
No one else will have me, only you
You’ll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for
I’m here I’m now I’m ready
Holding on tight
Don’t give away the end
The one thing that stays mine
Amazing still it seems
I’ll be twenty-three
I won’t always love what I’ll never have
I won’t always live in my regrets
You’ll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for
I’m here I’m now I’m ready
Holding on tight
Don’t give away the end
The one thing that stays mine
You’ll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for
I’m here I’m now I’m ready
Holding on tight
Don’t give away the end
The one thing that stays mine

What are some songs about the number (preferably the age) 23?

Hey ya’ll. So for the last year I’ve been listening to “When Yer Twenty Two” by The Flaming Lips almost weekly because I was 22. Especially after big life events and stuff.

But I just turned 23 like 10 minutes ago and now I need a new song but the most famous song about being Twenty-Three is Blink-182’s “What’s My Age Again?” and I think I can do better.

There’s also the title track from Blonde Redhead’s “23”. I think technically it’s supposed to be more like “Two-Three” instead of “Twenty-Three”, but feh.

Happy birthday!

Teleman – 23 Floors Up

jimmy eat world – 23

 

In fact the 1967 live version of “Leaves that are Green” says “23 now” actually, so that might be an even better choice, depending on the OP’s purposes.

 

Slow Club’s When I Go:

If we’re both not married by 22,
Could I be so bold and ask you?
If we’re both not married by 23,
Will you make my year and ask me?
If we’re both not married by 24,
Will you pass me those kneepads and I’ll get on the floor?
If we’re both not married by 25,
I hope there’s some childish spark still alive.

What songs make reference to being 23 years old?

 

“He was my Brother,” S&G.

The title of the song says it all. Jimmy Eat World – 23 goes like this:

 

There’s a suggested 23 in New England, by Billy Bragg.
“I was twenty one years when I wrote this song / I’m twenty two now, but I won’t be for long”

“23,” God Lives Underwater (“I’ve spent 23 years now/trying to get by”)

“Vicious World,” Rufus Wainwright (“Didn’t realize you were so top of the shelf/Just you wait and see when you turn, turn 23”)

“Dreaming,” Scribe (“I’m 23 and I just want to be me/wanna be free”)

“Skrying,” Mudvayne (“Sticks break on me/cost of life at 23”)
