‘Growing Pains’ Lyrics:

(verse 1)
Make my way through the motions
I try to ignore it
But home’s looking farther the closer I get
Don’t know why I can’t see the end
Is it over yet?

A short leash and a short fuse
Don’t match
They tell me it ain’t that bad
“now, don’t you overreact”
So I just hold my breath
Don’t know why I can’t see the sun
When young should be fun

(Pre-chorus)
And I guess the bad can get better
Gotta be wrong before it’s right
Every happy phrase engraved in my mind
And I’ve always been a go-getter
There’s truth in every word I write
But still the growing pains, growing pains
They’re keeping me up at night

(Chorus)
(hey hey x8)
And I can’t hide
‘cause growing pains are keeping me up
at night (x2)

(verse 2)
Try to mend what’s left
Of my content incomprehension
As I take on the stress
Of the mess that I’ve made
Don’t know if I even care for “grown”
If it’s just alone

(pre chorus)
(chorus)

(Bridge)
It’s starting to look like
Ms. Know-it-All can’t take her own advice
Can’t find
Pieces of my peace of mind
I Cry
More than I want to admit but I can’t lie
To myself, to anyone
Cause phoning it in isn’t any fun
Cant run
Back to my youth the way I want to
The days my brother was quicker to fool
AM radio, not much to do
Used monsters as an excuse
To lie awake
Now that monsters are the ones that I
Have to face
No band-aids for the growing pains
