As a child I couldn't wait,
To have my own life and learn from mistakes.
Daydreaming about how things would be,
'When I grow up, I'll be free...'
As the years flew by in a flash,
I try to recapture all the things from my past.
No longer wanting the responsibility,
'When I grew up, I still wasn't able to just be me...'
Still surrounded by vicious lies,
Playing by the rules, while others will despise,
Thought I left high school years ago,
'I grew up, yet have nothing to show...'
Wishing we could just get along,
Wanting to know what I did so wrong,
Though, deep down in my gut,
I keep wishing you'd just grow up!
