Downside Of Growing Up

Lyricist: Maddie & Tae    Composer: Maddie & Tae

Pack your bags and hug your mom
Been dreaming 'bout leaving for so long
You start to cry as you cram the truck
Yeah, that's the downside to growing up
You're fixing up your brand-new place
First day in, something breaks
And dad ain't there to get you unstuck
Yeah, that's the downside to growing up

But that's alright, that's OK
It's just the way you find your way
It's the road you gotta take to get where you're going
And 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 single day
Before too long, he's your everything
Until he leaves you standing in a cloud of dust
Yeah, that's the downside to growing up

But that's alright, that's OK
It's just the way you find your way
It's the road you gotta take to get where you're going
And 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 OK
Yeah, I know I'll find my way
On the road I gotta take to get where I'm going
And I'm gonna twist, I'm gonna turn
But it's how we're gonna learn
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
Ooh, yeah
