I didn't grow up I just grew old

lyrics

I didn't grow up I just grew old.

My life was better
Before I met ya'
But there isn't necessarily
A causal connection

Things were different
I had direction
But I was younger then
And I still had ambition

I had drive and
Some idea
Of where my life was headed
Back before I stagnated

There was promise
For the future
I don't know where that went.

Ever since I've hit thirty
I've become more surly
I don't remember when I got this cynical
I don't know what I want
I know I'm not what you need
I'm a boy in a man's body

There are things that
I have done that
I just wouldn't have done
If I hadn't been with you

There are things that
You have done that
You wouldn't have considered
If you hadn't been with me

We've come so far
And it's so sad but
We've reached the point you've outgrown me
I think we both wish that you hadn't

Did we enrich
Each others lives or
Did we hold each other back?

Ever since I've hit thirty
I've become more surly
I don't remember when I got this cynical
I don't know what I want
I know I'm not what you need
I'm a boy in a man's body

And you're no good for me.
