Stressed out - Twenty one pilots



Free piano sheet music: Stressed out - Twenty one pilots .pdf


We used to play pretend, give each other different names, we would build a rocket ship and then we'd fly it far away.


Stressed out is a song recorded by band Twenty One Pilots. Band is American alternative hip hop band. Song is written for their fourth studio album, Blurryface and it was released as a single on April 2015. Stressed Out has reached number two on the Billboard (Hot 100), but number one on Billboard (Hot Rock Songs, Adult Top 40 and Mainstream Top 40). It also reached number one in Czech Republic (Singles Digitál Top 100) and Mexico (Monitor Latino).

The lyrics discuss the pressure of adulthood and nostalgia for childhood (Used to dream of outer space but now they're laughing at our face, saying, "Wake up, you need to make money."). Even though every child wants to be older or treated as grown up, the end of adolescence and the transition to adulthood can be very harsh. It is not what we expected. I remember when my first paiment came and I was told that now I'm on my own. I felt so scared of what future will bring and alone and abandoned. But I was wrong, they are still there for me, and yes, it's different. But most of the time is even good different and sometimes bad different. Song speaks from the point of view of Blurryface and that is the album's title character. And the sentence My name's Blurryface and I care what you think can be really powerful, because they speak to us, and they give us the filling that thay care and we are not alone.

Musically, Stressed Out is written in the key of A minor, following a chord progression of F – Dm – Am – Am. Genre of this song is rap rock and that was a pain in the ass to me, because I was so torn how to make this arrangement. If you have not noteced, rap is in every verse. So I have decided that I should use only basic beat with cross notes, but in the third and fourth verse, when we can hear a little voice movements I used full notes with full rhythm.

 
 

 



Lyrics:

I wish I found some better sounds no one's ever heard,
I wish I had a better voice that sang some better words,
I wish I found some chords in an order that is new,

I wish I didn't have to rhyme every time I sang, 
was told when I get older all my fears would shrink,
but now I'm insecure and I care what people think.

My name's 'Blurryface' and I care what you think.
My name's 'Blurryface' and I care what you think.

Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol' days,
when our momma sang us to sleep but now we're stressed out.
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol' days,
when our momma sang us to sleep but now we're stressed out.

We're stressed out.

Sometimes a certain smell will take me back to when I was young,
how come I'm never able to identify where it's coming from,
I'd make a candle out of it if I ever found it,
try to sell it, never sell out of it, I'd probably only sell one,
it'd be to my brother, 'cause we have the same nose,
same clothes homegrown a stone's throw from a creek we used to roam,
but it would remind us of when nothing really mattered,
out of student loans and treehouse homes we all would take the latter.

My name's 'Blurryface' and I care what you think.
My name's 'Blurryface' and I care what you think.

Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol' days,
when our momma sang us to sleep but now we're stressed out.
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol' days,
when our momma sang us to sleep but now we're stressed out.

We used to play pretend, give each other different names,
we would build a rocket ship and then we'd fly it far away,
used to dream of outer space but now they're laughing at our face,
saying, "Wake up, you need to make money." Yo.

Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol' days,
when our momma sang us to sleep but now we're stressed out.
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol' days,
when our momma sang us to sleep but now we're stressed out.

Used to play pretend, used to play pretend, bunny,
we used to play pretend, wake up, you need the money,
used to play pretend, used to play pretend, bunny,
we used to play pretend, wake up, you need the money,
we used to play pretend, give each other different names,
we would build a rocket ship and then we'd fly it far away,
used to dream of outer space but now they're laughing at our face,
saying, "Wake up, you need to make money." Yo.
