Once we were kids

Drawing love hearts in the sand.

Once we were kids

And didn't understand.

Sometimes I miss that naivety.

Those days long gone.

-

You know you've grown up,

When you no longer tell the time by the TV shows.

-

You know you've grown up,

When you stop using a teaspoon for cereal.

-

You know you've grown up,

When study takes over afternoon cartoons.

-

You know you've grown up,

When weekends are made for sleeping in.

-

You know you've grown up,

When you let go of those middle school grudges.

-

You know you've grown up,

When being a teenager seems no big deal.

-

You know you've grown up,

When you still do the kiddie things,

Just so you never forget how it is.

-

-

You know you've grown up,

Just like you always wanted to.

Right?
