In July 2009 Taylor moved out of her family home into a 1.9 million dollar condo in Nashville, Tennessee. This song switches from a lullaby addressed to a young child to Taylor feeling alone as she spends her first night in her new apartment of her own. The song has an undercurrent of sadness as she reflects on the innocence of the young.
Taylor (from her website): "'Never Grow Up' is a song about the fact that I don't quite know how I feel about growing up. It's tricky. Growing up happens without you knowing it. Growing up is such a crazy concept because a lot of times when you were younger you wish you were older. I look out into a crowd every night and I see a lot of girls that are my age and going through exactly the same things as I'm going through. Every once in a while I look down and I see a little girl who is seven or eight, and I wish I could tell her all of this. There she is becoming who she is going to be and forming her thoughts and dreams and opinions. I wrote this song for those little girls."
