Born and Raised

Lyricist:     Composer: John Mayer
Now and then
I pace my place
I can't retrace how I got here

I cheat and lie
to check my fates
it's slightly harder than last year

and all at once
it gets hard to take
it gets hard to fake what I won't be
cause one of these days
I'll be born and raised
and it's such a waste to grow up lonely

I still have dreams
and I'm the same
they don't fly as high as they used to

I saw my friend
he's in my head
and he said," you don't remember me do you ? "

and all to once
it gets hard to take
it gets hard to fake what I won't be
cause one of these days
I'll be born and raised
and it's such a waste to grow up lonely

I still got time
I still got faith
I call on both of my brothers
I got a Mom
I got a Dad
but they do not have each other

so ride on up, and take your place
show your face to the morning
" cause one of these days you'll be born and raised
and it comes on without warning
