Year Three, Week One: “Grown People”

Lyrics:

She said
I can’t live like this
I can’t live in this town anymore
I can’t live with twenty million
people on the other side of my door
If I died tomorrow
there’s nothing I would miss
I’m too grown for this, she said
I’m too grown for this

She said
What I need is country
What I need is to lay my claim
Room out back to raise some chickens
and children there to carry my name
I hear you beg for one more year
One more chance at bat
I’m too grown for that, she said
I’m too grown for that

Grown people can name the things they need
Grown people, grown in word and grown in deed
It’s written in our fortunes, but you never learned to read

She said
I can’t wait forever
I can’t live for waiting on you
Every day is wasted
if waiting’s all ┬áthat I can do
You can’t win me back
with a promise and a kiss
I’m too grown for this, she said
I’m too grown for this
