  • I was wasting my time
    Trying to fall in love
    Disappointment came to me and
    Booted me and bruised and hurt me

    That's how people grow up
    That's how people grow up

    I was wasting my time
    Looking for love
    Someone must look at me
    And see their sunlit dream

    I was wasting my time
    Praying for love
    For a love that never comes from
    Someone who does not exist and

    That's how people grow up
    That's how people grow up

    Let me live before I die
    Not me, not I!

    I was wasting my life
    Always thinking about myself
    Someone on the deathbed said
    "There are other sorrows too"

    I was driving my car
    I crashed and broke my spine
    So yes, there are things worse in life than
    Never being someone's sweetie

    That's how people grow up
    That's how people grow up

    That's how people grow up
    That's how people grow up

    As for me I'm okay
    For now anyway Writer/s: STEVEN MORRISSEY, MARTIN JAMES BOORER
