  • [Verse 1]
  • That was the way, that was the way it was
  • When you're five years old and don't have nowhere else to run
  • Except into your mother's arms, where she held you so tight
  • And you're scared of the dark so you sleep with your little night light
  • [Verse 2]
  • When you walked up to school and everyone there was your best friend
  • When you learned your numbers and shapes and played pretend
  • You didn't mind that your hair was a mess, you were so carefree
  • You didn't know how cold and cruel this world would one day be
  • [Chorus]
  • We were just so young
  • We should have known
  • We should have known
  • That one day we'd hate our bodies and we'd orbit around buttons on a phone
  • We should have known
  • That one day we'd pluck our eyebrow hairs and wonder why the cool kids stared at me
  • Oh why'd it have to be
  • Our imaginations have run dry
  • We hate ourselves and have a nightly cry
  • And then we act like we're fine
  • It's alcohol and bombs and drugs, don't ever let your children grow up
  • (Oh oh oh oh oh oh)
  • [Verse 3]
  • We would swing on the swings and jump off and pretend we could fly
  • But as soon as we blinked we grew up and we're junior high
  • So our dads dropped us off at the park and we stayed out 'till ten
  • So the makeup comes out and we think we need the perfect boyfriend
  • [Chorus]
  • We were just so young
  • How didn't we know
  • How didn't we know
  • That we'd be independent on our own and lose more friends while traveling down the road
  • Oh, how didn't we know
  • That there's more to life than sleepovers and jocks turn out worse than the science nerds
  • But somehow that all gets blurred
  • And some relationships they end real fast
  • And though you want you might never get it back
  • The doors close just like that
  • It's depression and it's broken love, don't ever let your children grow up
  • (Oh oh oh oh oh oh)
  • We're no longer young
  • So now that we know
  • So now that we know
  • That this world could use some turning 'round, if only we could find some common ground
  • But it's up to us
  • And although at times it gets so rough, you have got to let your children grow up
  • Yeah, you have got to let your children, got to let your children grow up
