Verse 1

I grew up.

I don't wanna make another foe

With my arrogance and my ego.

So I took your hand and pulled you over to my side.

I made the first move by swallowing my pride.

I grew up.

Chorus

We can be friends or enemies, we have a choice,

Contrary to what movies and songs portray.

It was difficult loving you, but you were worth it.

Thank you for teaching me that there's always a way

To replace my own shallow hatred and jealousy with love,

That's how I grew up.

I grew up,

I grew up.

Verse 2

I grew up.

I don't want another dartboard,

Another stupid battle of swords.

So I took a deep breath and learnt to admire you.

I painted your picture afresh in bright hues.

I grew up.

Chorus

We can be friends or enemies, we have a choice,

Contrary to what movies and songs portray.

It was difficult loving you, but you were worth it.

Thank you for teaching me that there's always a way

To replace my own shallow hatred and jealousy with love,

That's how I grew up.

I grew up,

I grew up.

Bridge

You too need to grow up.

End that petty fight,

Scheming and plotting and planning at nights

To humiliate her in front of a hundred eyes...

You can, we did, we grew up.

Chorus

We can be friends or enemies, we have a choice,

Contrary to what movies and songs portray.

It was difficult loving you, but you were worth it.

Thank you for teaching me that there's always a way

To replace my own shallow hatred and jealousy with love,

That's how I grew up.

I grew up,

I grew up.
