Please Never Grow Up…

  
“Never Grow Up”

~Lyrics by Taylor Swift~

Your little hand’s wrapped around my finger

And it’s so quiet in the world tonight

Your little eyelids flutter cause you’re dreaming

So I tuck you in, turn on your favorite night light

To you everything’s funny, you got nothing to regret

I’d give all I have, honey

If you could stay like that
Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up

Don’t you ever grow up, just stay this little

Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up

Don’t you ever grow up, it could stay this simple

I won’t let nobody hurt you, won’t let no one break your heart

And no one will desert you

Just try to never grow up, never grow up
You’re in the car on the way to the movies

And you’re mortified your mom’s dropping you off

At 14 there’s just so much you can’t do

And you can’t wait to move out someday and call your own shots

But don’t make her drop you off around the block

Remember that she’s getting older too

And don’t lose the way that you dance around in your pj’s getting ready for school
Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up

Don’t you ever grow up, just stay this little

Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up

Don’t you ever grow up, it could stay this simple

No one’s ever burned you, nothing’s ever left you scarred

And even though you want to, just try to never grow up
Take pictures in your mind of your childhood room

Memorize what it sounded like when your dad gets home

Remember the footsteps, remember the words said

And all your little brother’s favorite songs

I just realized everything I have is someday gonna be gone
So here I am in my new apartment

In a big city, they just dropped me off

It’s so much colder than I thought it would be

So I tuck myself in and turn my night light on
Wish I’d never grown up

I wish I’d never grown up
Oh I don’t wanna grow up, wish I’d never grown up

I could still be little

Oh I don’t wanna grow up, wish I’d never grown up

It could still be simple

Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up

Don’t you ever grow up, just stay this little

Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up

Don’t you ever grow up, it could stay this simple

Won’t let nobody hurt you

Won’t let no one break your heart

And even though you want to, please try to never grow up

Oh, don’t you ever grow up

Oh, never grow up, just never grow up
