Being an adult is never easy. There are the bills to pay, responsibilities to take into consideration, decisions to make, and if you are married you also have to take care of your family. Sometimes you end up not taking care of yourself and it’s exhausting. There are times when our mind drifts away to when we were young. When life was as simple as it could be, and as beautiful and relaxing as we always hoped to be. Playing in our backyard, waiting for mom to make meals for us, hanging out with our friends, and just watching TV the whole afternoon. Life is simple, but we all have to grow up and take responsibilities in order to live.

About the Song
What makes the song great is the feeling it gives when you listen to it. That light, happy and carefree person we used to be when we were kids, that’s what the song is about. It’s about the life in the 1970s or 1980s. It’s not just because it makes you remember yourself as a kid, but to be honest it’s also how you were as a kid. When you look at children nowadays, we realize that they don’t experience the feeling of growing up like we did. The things and adventures we experienced. That is why the song is remarkable and nostalgic.
Listen to Mark Wills “19 Somethin” and reminisce your childhood days.
