Verse 1

Wasn't it easier when we were just children?

No secrets to take to the grave, no burden,

No pain so heavy weighing down your heart,

No harsh words could ever tear you apart.

Pre-chorus

Cause back then bigger arms would hold us tight

And we knew that everything would be alright.

Back then, the world still hadn't put on this fight.

And storms never came, there was always light.

Chorus

Don't know where those times went away.

Everything is way too complicated today.

What happened to your heart? Who tainted it?

Lost you along the way, now I walk alone in this street.

That's fine, if you just keep your words to yourself.

Don't need your taunts and insults, don't need your help.

You don't know what I've been going through.

You won't understand, I don't have to tell you.

Childhood's over, and now we walk at different pace.

Just leave me alone, don't make a mess of my mess.

Verse 2

Now I have responsibilities on my shoulders.

Don't have time for this; I'll dodge the boulders

That you're throwing at me for no good reason.

Maybe friendship dies during growing up season.

Pre-chorus

But back then bigger arms would hold us tight

And we knew that everything would be alright.

Back then, the world still hadn't put on this fight.

And storms never came, there was always light.

Chorus

Don't know where those times went away.

Everything is way too complicated today.

What happened to your heart? Who tainted it?

Lost you along the way, now I walk alone in this street.

That's fine, if you just keep your words to yourself.

Don't need your taunts and insults, don't need your help.

You don't know what I've been going through.

You won't understand, I don't have to tell you.

Childhood's over, and now we walk at different pace.

Just leave me alone, don't make a mess of my mess.

Bridge

I wish I could, once again, spot animals in the clouds,

And speak my innocent mind, say everything out loud.

But my mother's growing old,

And the world is way too cold,

And I need to step up and protect the ones I love.

I know you won't understand,

I know you won't hold my hand.

That's fine, just don't stand there blocking my way,

Sputtering gibberish to create your own little drama,

I need to get home now to my mama,

I don't wanna hear what you have to say.

Don't make a mess of my mess today.

Chorus

Don't know where those times went away.

Everything is way too complicated today.

What happened to your heart? Who tainted it?

Lost you along the way, now I walk alone in this street.

That's fine, if you just keep your words to yourself.

Don't need your taunts and insults, don't need your help.

You don't know what I've been going through.

You won't understand, I don't have to tell you.

Childhood's over, and now we walk at different pace.

Just leave me alone, don't make a mess of my mess.

Outro

Today my bigger arms will hold them tight

And I know that everything will be alright.

Storms will come, but I'll be their light.

Do whatever, I'm busy, I won't fight.
