  • We're getting old, now
    But I don't feel it
    I say you're beautiful
    And I still mean it
    And I don't wanna know
    What old age feels like
    So promise me you won't
    Give up on this life

    And we'll be busy tryin'
    While the rest of them are dyin'

    Promise me we'll never grow up
    I don't wanna let go
    I wanna stay young
    And even when the wrinkles show up
    We'll be laughing, and
    We can play forever, don't make me face the truth

    I think it's obvious
    That we'll stay happy
    Cause I'm the happiest
    When you smile at me
    And we won't end the same
    A broken family
    I'll never walk away
    Without you with me

    And times are getting harder
    But I'm nothing like my father

    Promise me we'll never grow up
    I don't wanna fall out
    I wanna make love
    And even when we can't sew up
    We're together, and
    Happy ever after, don't make me face the truth

    That I'm dying soon
    That we're dying...
    Don't say goodbye!

    We're so much older...
    (When did we get so old, so old, so old?)
    All I want is one more life with you!

    When did we get so old?
    Why did you get so sick?
    And how could you die?

    You promised me you'd never grow up
    Now I have to let go
    God, I miss you so much!
    And even when your heart gave out
    I was thinkin' how
    I won't say goodbye!

    You promised me you'd never grow up
    But you fucking grew up
    God, I miss you so much!
    And even when your heart gave out
    I was thinkin' I'd
    Love you till forever, and I can't face the truth

    That I died with you
    That you lied...
    (That you died...)

    That you died...
