Good day, future legend!
Today's struggle, tomorrow's strife-
all essential components of your origin story.
You, forged for greatness. Go!

We Grew Up

July 15, 2019


Verse 1:
Summer treehouse days
Running through the sprinklers
Bug bites and play
When we were just kids

Verse 2: 
Chocolate ice cream cones
Words we didn’t know 
Unprepared, scared to grow up
We hid behind our mothers

    Those were the good old days

Chorus:
We grew up
Once said we’d stay young forever 
Promising it would all stay the same
Until we realized the big world needed big people
To fill the space the others left behind

Verse 3:
Not a care in the world
Oblivious childhood
Nowhere to be, nothing to do 
Just children and our dreams

Verse 4: 
Dreams of tomorrow
Spaceships and sunshine
We said we’d go all over the world
And perhaps we did

    Those were the good old days

Chorus: 
We grew up
We once said we’d stay young forever 
Promising it would all stay the same
Until we realized the big world needed big people
To fill the space the others left behind

Bridge: 
A never ending cycle 
Grow up, get old, then die
We grew up 
Into big people
With big choices to make
And big things to do 

Close:
No more sprinkler summers
And ice creams cones
It’s a big world, we grew up

We grew up
