John Mayer - The Age Of Worry Lyrics




Close your eyes and clone yourself
Build your heart an army
To defend your innocence
While you do everything wrong

Don't be scared to walk alone
Don't be scared to like it
There's no time that you must be home
So sleep where darkness falls

Alive in the age of worry
Smile in the age of worry
Go wild in the age of worry
And say, "Worry, why should I care?"

Know your fight is not with them
Yours is with your time here
Dream your dreams but don't pretend
Make friends with what you are

Give your heart then change your mind
You're allowed to do it
'Cause God knows it's been done to you
And somehow you got through it

Alive in the age of worry
Rage in the age of worry
Sing out in the age of worry
And say, "Worry, why should I care?"

Rage in the age of worry
Act your age in the age of worry
And say, "Worry, get out of here!"

John Mayer The Age Of Worry Comments
  1. Nicole donahoo

    0:18 he gets this crazy look in his eye right before the drums kick in and you know it’s about to go down lol

  2. Philip D Helmet

    Thank you John. You will never know how much your music helps me to go through life when it gets hard. Rage in the age of worry

  3. Sheri Lynn Bettevy

    I’m totally shocked..I’m huge JM fan...however I somehow came across this particular song this morning.I have never heard it?I don’t understand why??but I am grateful I have.It is as well an awesome song...it also I find at times like people lives...then and now it starts in the beginning as a root...and it continues to grow and blossom...or it gets cut down.JM or may I say John has lived and is still living...continuing to move forward even more as he continues.Love our Legend’s ⭐️✨✨✨🕊🕊🕊🕊🤝🤝🤝🤝🕊🕊🕊🌹true blessing.

  4. Sujeet Poudel

    Did he thank twice?

  5. Hyacinthe Talhea Noelle

    that finger & foot work lets go johnny boy

  6. Max Kivivuori

    I think his voice has restored quite well since this

  7. fulano

    Who is the solo guitarrist?

  8. Limandry Silaban

    worry why should i care?

  9. Keylan Roberts

    Imagine being John Mayer’s guitarist. 😳

  10. Griffin Maxwell

    I would love to hear Hozier do a cover of this song.

  11. jennypennypocket

    This sounds like a mind struggling before entering the confessional booth. But then realizing he had never been baptised, stepped out and laughed because he didn't have to say one word, since all would disappear as soon as the water splashed off off his forehead.

    I'll try to shut up and just listen to the music.

  12. Sean Raidley

    His right-hand technique is a joy to watch.

  13. Marisha Ann Huskey

    #LoveIt Lyrics right on.

    The Age of Worry

    John Mayer

    Close your eyes and clone yourself
    Build your heart and army
    To defend your innocence
    While you do everything wrong

    Don't be scared to walk alone
    Don't be scared to like it
    There's no time that you must be home
    So sleep where your darkness falls

    Alive in the age of worry
    Smile in the age of worry
    Go wild in the age of worry
    And sing Worry, why should I care?

    No you fight is not within
    Yours is with your timing
    Dream your dreams but don't pretend
    Be friends with what you are
    Give your heart then change your mind
    You're allowed to do it
    'Cause God knows it's been done to you
    And somehow you got through it

    Alive in the age of worry
    Rage in the age of worry
    Sing out in the age of worry
    And sing Worry, why should I care?

    Rage in the age of worry
    Act your age in the age of worry
    And sing Worry, get out of here!

  15. Funnels Master

    Don't be scared to walk alone,Don't be scared to like it.There's no time that you must be Home so sleep where Darkness falls. Millenials this is a message to you,Don't be afraid to be the oddball and when things don't seem to work out for you and it seems like LIfe is going too fast,remember,this alloted time for when things should be done and achieved is a social construct

  16. Zino지노

    Thank you John

  17. Legoat

  19. Kennedy Cox

    sweet creature by harry styles

  20. kwasi dee

    That guitar solo tho

  21. Lam Chop

    very Dylan-ish song.

  22. Michael Myers

    can I just point out the footwork at 0:20 ....

    Rikard Holmqvist

    Lol. Sing, play and dance - Mayer can do it all.

  23. Andreas Reuther

    That John Mayer face during the intro though

    Shane Josias

    Weirdly enough, its extremely effective to do that particular head bob while playing the intro. For me atleast.

    Giovanni Pignato

    Ted Mosby*

    Chris Serong

    In that moment he looks like he’s as free as a bird.
    I guarantee you that he couldn’t give a shit how it looks

  24. Vanlal hruaia

    a very very inspiring and sweet sweet song for me John,Thank you

  25. Marianna Sobral

    love John 😍

  26. Jackson H

    Does anyone know what model guitar this is?

    Zimmy45

    By the looks of it, this is his Martin OM-28JM limited edition guitar which arent made anymore. Similar to this Martin makes the OMJM john mayer signature acoustic now. Also make the 00-42SC John Mayer Signature as well.

    Jackson H

    +Zimmy45 yea those stagecoach models are pricey

  27. Deeep 999

    I love that guitar om jm

  28. Alex Oliver Dawn

    What a great song by a great artist!

  29. Raquel Souza Kekel

    Eu amo esse cara😍 John❤

    lucky

    hey you beautiful human female, you're so hot girl pls be my date now

  30. Jeffrey Modak

    The song feels just right.... :) all those li'l life anecdotes wrapped up in superbly sung lyrics and melodic upbeats & riffs.

  31. Isaac Kadosh

    It was better to go with acoustic version for this.  john's voice is not there in this particular performance

  32. Jelle

    sombody who knows where you can buy nice bandanas like john wears?

    Andi takeroro

    Jelle u can found it in Indonesia

  33. Shobhit Varma

    Absolutely brilliant. Mayer is so underrated.

    Eli

    no he isn't

  34. anadeeply

    he is awesomeee :)love him <3

  35. joseph eku

    lmao at how he says "done to you.." at 1:48

    Hugo Stiglitz

    +joseph eku I think he's looking at the crowd on the upper level hahaah

  36. djwinger2003

    Great song! He looks fucking coked out of it here though!

    djwinger2003

    @JamJamJes Wrong, I don't take drugs. Don't be so defensive just because you like the guy. It wouldn't be shocking if a singer takes drugs, it'd be more shocking if they didn't. Artists have a long history with drugs because they tend to find they write better music. He really does look coked out of it though.

    Kostas1601

    I'd say he's just really into it or it sounds weird because he's trying to shake things up a little in the song. Of all places, it would be really weird if he did drugs before going on live television. I'm not saying it's impossible it's just highly unlikely. 

    daliksheppy

    hes like this every performance so hes either taken a hell of a lot of coke or hes just into his music. id say the latter.

    Ahmed El Gebali

    He's always like that, he's just into it

    Rob

    Bullshit he’s a perfectionist there’s no way he is on coke. You need to take some and try to engage in a complex activity under pressure

  37. Christian Nikodemus

    What guitar is THAT?! 0:30 

    NoOne

    +Christian Nikodemus Looks more like an electric mandolin to me

    Tony De Los Angeles

    That is a Hammertone OC12, an electric 12-string octave guitar. It’s tuned one octave higher than a standard 12-string. Essentially, it sounds like a 12-string guitar with a capo at the 12th fret.

  38. Luke Davis

    That Fucking mandoline twelve string idk what ever the Fuck that us is really Fucking good. Dude is tear in up!

    Journeyman

    man, i need it, do you know what model it is ?

  39. 陳玉鈴

    又是王菲大女兒的分享 才知此曲的風味

  40. Pathetic soul

    I think he's just absolutely amazing.Nice watching grow into himself as a man...I've only grown to love his music more over the years...he may not be the same 20+ year old boy,but he's one hell of a man.

  41. iDespiseMicrosoftWindows

    Why are half the people recording
    Why do pele record in concerts
    They spend all this money to go and look at the screen of an iPhone instead

    Jennifer Beavers

    iDespiseMicrosoftWindows yeah I am in this in between stage I appreciate that they are there for me to view but I just can’t do anything but “feel” the music at a concert it’s like a trance I get goosebumps and even cried at this years John Mayer show and I don’t cry much really it was wild though it was almost spiritual feeling

  42. Timothy Stratton

    just not the same singer as he used to be... and you can tell he's torn up about it...

  43. mattcracked1

    If I saw John live I wouldn't waste a second on recording it. Viewing genius like this is once in a lifetime experience..

    Namhla Sithole

    Kinda what his song 3x5 is all about

    mmafan2223

    agree. i'm seeing him twice this year lucky me!

    simplyvl

    I use to think the same until I went to his concert. I ended up recording some of my favourite songs and it allows me to relive the moment again on my phone.

    Richard ja

    @Jeppe Stistrup Markussen he has no bad songs 😉

    2v_5r

    Especially when the concert is being professionally recorded by fancy cameras and equipment

  44. Narayan Swamy

    Worry!! Why should I care!!??

  45. Artistique

    My therapist...forever more Mr Mayer. Worry...why should I care....INDEED.

  46. Rick Manubay

    This is a good song for travelling

    MrMitchell2002

    Thats probably because it may remind you of a nikon camera commercial in which they are traveling

  47. Kristen Killingsworth

    ahaha whaddup with his face at the beginning xD

    John Stapleton

    He's so stoned it's ridiculous lol

    Katie Holt - The Awesome Autie

    @John Stapleton
    uh... no. He had botox in his throat. He was recovering from throat surgery. Geez.

  48. samidtaha Sam

    Damn that solo!!

  49. Gervacio Rodriguez

    jaja la cara que pone al tocar la intro :), es muy buena esta canción!

    Luis Morales

    waakkajajajj no la habia visto...wena

  50. Shailesh Khanal

    One of my fav of all time! Wholeheartedly thanx John for such a gr8 inspiring & touching music. Can't stop listening this song. LONG LIVE JOHN!! :)

  51. Belén Alonso

    People recording with their phones.... Like:DUDE!! THIS WILL BE ON YOUTUBE IN ABOUT 3 HOURS, WILL YOU LOOK AT THE FUCKING SHOW AND TURN OFF YOUR PHONE!??!!

    Josiah E

    Straight up! You know they're recording it at a much higher quality, so why not just take in the experience through your own eyes instead of the lens of an iPhone?!

  52. Belén Alonso

    That leg dance.... Loveeeeee

  53. Izzah Salam

    Watched him live at Wembley, London two days ago and he played this. Lyrical genius, he is. His concert was mind blowing. His music is definitely better when you hear it live!

  54. Giovanni Sergio

    0 dislike, just the way it should be :)
