Growing Pains

Album: Beautiful Lies (2016)

  • Try to change your mind, it's like the weather
    And you don't make my heart beat like you used to
    I've been waiting for a sign, you've been turning on your light

    We could save each other for the better
    And when you say my name I'll be a memory
    This is all that we have planned, choices taken from our hands

    Finally this fades to stand alone

    My mind is a runaway
    And I'll find it's too hard to breathe
    Just say what you want to say
    Are you there?
    Tell me, are you there?
    I fear these growing pains
    That made us far too strong
    Do change if you want to change
    Are you there?
    Tell me, are you there?

    You could lose yourself and search forever
    Looking for the person that you'll never be
    Breathe in, try to compensate, time to learn from our mistakes

    Maybe one day we'll fit back together
    I'll pick up the pieces and will rearrange
    Now we need to follow fate, now we look beyond the way

    Now we find the strangers and the lone

    My mind is a runaway
    And I'll find it's too hard to breathe
    Just say what you want to say
    Are you there?
    Tell me, are you there?
    I fear these growing pains
    That made us far too strong
    Do change if you want to change
    Are you there?
    Tell me, are you there?

    We've been changing into something more
    Familiar faces turning into storm
    These growing pains have made us far too strong
    We move along, we move along

    I'll find it's too hard to breathe
    Say what you want to say
    Are you there?
    Tell me, are you there?
    My mind is a runaway
    And I'll find it's too hard to breathe
    Just say what you want to say
    Are you there?
    Tell me, are you there?
    I fear these growing pains
    That made us far too strong
    Do change if you want to change
    Are you there?
    Tell me, are you there?
    My mind is a runaway
    And I'll find it's too hard to breathe
    Just say what you want to say
    Are you there?
    Tell me, are you there?
    I fear these growing pains
    That made us far too strong
    Do change if you want to change
    Are you there?
    Tell me, are you there? Writer/s: JASMINE LUCILLA ELISABETH VAN DEN BOGAERDE, SAM ROMANS
