Never Grow Up

Taylor Swift with red flower

 

 

 

Your little hands 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

No, 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 PJs 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

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

 

Don’t you ever grow up

(Never grow up)

Just never grow up
