Downside of Growing Up

Album: Start Here (2015)
  • Pack your bags and hug your mom
    Been dreaming about leaving for so long
    You start to cry as you crank the truck
    Yeah, that's the downside of growing up

    Fixin' up your brand new place
    First day in and something breaks
    Your dad ain't there to get you unstuck
    Yeah, that's the downside of growing up

    That's alright, that's okay
    It's just the way you find your way
    It's the road you gotta take to get where you're going
    You're gonna twist, you're gonna turn
    But it's how you're gonna learn
    A lot about life, a lot about love
    On the downside of growing up

    It starts out as a simple date
    Before too long, he's your everything
    'Til he leaves you standing in a cloud of dust
    Yeah, that's the downside of growing up

    That's alright, that's okay
    It's just the way you find your way
    It's the road you gotta take to get where you're going
    You're gonna twist, you're gonna turn
    But it's how you're gonna learn
    A lot about life, a lot about love
    On the downside of growing up

    I know what you're feeling
    Yeah, I understand
    'Cause where you are is where I've been
    And where I still am

    And I'm alright, I'm okay
    Yeah, I know I'll find my way
    On the road I gotta take to get where I'm going
    I'm gonna twist, I'm gonna turn
    But it's how you're gonna turn
    A lot about life, a lot about love
    On the downside of growing up

    A lot about life, a lot about love
    On the downside of growing up Writer/s: BREANT ANDERSON, FRANK ROGERS, MADDIE MARLOW, TAYLOR ELIZABETH DYE
