Echosmith - Cool Kids

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
. "

He sees them talking with a big smile, but they haven't got a clue.
Yeah, they're living the good life, can't see what he is going through
.
They're driving fast cars, but they don't know where they're going.
In the fast lane, living life without knowing
.
And he 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.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids,
'Cause all the cool kids they seem to get it
.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids, like the cool kids. "

And they said,
"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.
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.
"I wish that I could be like the cool kids,
'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to get it.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids, like the cool kids.

"Cool Kids" is the debut single song by American indie pop band Echosmith from their 2013 debut studio album "Talking Dreams". The song was written by Echosmith, Jeffery David, and Jesiah Dzwonek. It was produced by Mike Elizondo, with additional production on the radio edit by Rob Cavallo. "Cool Kids" was originally released on May 31, 2013, as the iTunes Store Single of the Week and officially impacted United States radio the following year. The song subsequently became a sleeper hit, peaking at number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 and receiving airplay on US modern rock, hot adult contemporary, and contemporary hit radio stations. This is the first single not only for the album but for the band itself. The song went Platinum in December 2014. Crazy part is that the song was nearly left off of their album. Jamie (singer/guitarist) says the message of the song is simple: the coolest thing you can be is yourself. But more often than not, fans tell the band that they relate to the kids they’re singing about. That they feel like the outsider looking in. "This cry to be like the cool kids… it’s something that everyone kind of goes through whether you want to act like it or not. There’s always somebody out there that you kind of wish, ‘If only I could do this, or do that.’ I think that’s why it connects with people so well." He also said to NGEN radio: "I think "Cool Kids" is definitely a song that people have been connecting with a lot, and I think the song for us is a story about a boy and a girl who want to fit in and they see these kids they think are so cool. In reality the message is if being being yourself is cool, then you don’t have to try to be someone else." When asked about the powerful lyrics, Sydney (lead vocalist) explained: "We didn’t write the song with the intent of, ‘Oh my gosh, I want to write a hit single, and I want people to know our song.’ Obviously you do want that, but when you write, you need to be honest; we wrote this song because we relate to it. Everybody at some point, whether you’re a kid or not, you do have that desire to be like somebody else, and you constantly compare yourself. And it’s an everyday decision to decide not to." With a cool little story to follow about Katy Perry loving the song too. "I was backstage and she was just walking to her green room and she said, “cool kids, I wish I could be like them” and, like, pointed at me and walked away. I was like, ‘What?!’ and I literally just had my mouth open. I actually told someone, ‘Tell her to come back out and take a picture with me!’"
