Olivia Rodrigo’s debut album is here, which also means we just got a whole bunch of lyrics from SOUR for Instagram captions. At 18, the Disney Channel alum is proving she’s a lot more than just a one-hit-wonder after the viral success of her 2021 single, “drivers license.” Her lyrics on SOUR range from topics of self-empowerment to self-doubt that anyone who has ever been a teenager (or, TBH, a struggling twenty-something) can relate to.

The High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star’s first studio album, SOUR
was released on Friday, May 21, to much praise from fans and music critics alike. Aside from the many fan theories surrounding the album (like, whether songs like “Deja Vu” and “drivers license” are about her rumored ex and HSM:TM:TS co-star, Joshua Bassett), there’s one driving theme on the record that’s uniting listeners everywhere: Angst. Yes, this album is oozing teenage angst and heartbreak in ways we all needed to hear, all in order to remind us that we maybe-actually haven’t let go of our own.

As many fans have pointed out on social media, Olivia seemingly gave us a soundtrack that feels right at home both during our Millennial AIM or Gen-Z TikTok days. But no matter where you stand in that timeline, one thing’s clear at this point: We’re all on Instagram. So, without any further ado, keep reading for some of the best lyrics from Olivia Rodrigo’s SOUR to use as Instagram captions below.
