It's hard growing up

Or so they say

But it's even harder

Realizing that today's today

Looking back

On the album of your life

Recounting memories

When heart almost met knife

When you're young

No one seems to understand

But you still have time

To fail or to make living grand

And nowadays

Everything is going down-hill

You wish you collect all the time

The wasted time you did kill

When you're older

At your age now

If you're surviving your thoughts

Stand up and take a bow

Cause it's hard growing up

Or so they say

But it's even harder

Realizing that today's today
