Growing up is a scary thing.
As you grow up, you lose everything.
My joy flies out the window.
Now so self conscious,
My head's always low.
My childhood seems to have disappeared,
Just like the paint that used to be smeared
On the walls of my room.
That familiar boom
Of my alarm clock starting to scream.
"Time to wake up for school."
Oh please don't be a fool.
I really don't want to wake up.
And accept that I've grown
And that I've left home
Searching for what life has taken from me.
I want my childhood back,
All the pain and regret,
Comes along with the laughter and joy.
I'm not ready to grow up,
And give myself up
To a world of incomplete feeling.
As you grow up you lose
Family and sometimes friends too
but there's someone more important than that.
There's one person I tossed,
At a very large cost.
Of all the people who left,
I miss myself the most.
