It's alright
To tell me
What you think
About me
I won't try
To argue
Or hold it
Against you
I know that
You're leaving
You must have
Your reasons
The season
Is calling
And your pictures
Are falling down

The steps that
I retraced
A sad look
On your face
The timing
And structure
Did you hear
He fucked her
A day late
A buck short
I'm writing
The report
I'm losing
And failing
When I move
I'm flailing now

And it's happened once again
I'll turn to a friend
Someone that understands
Sees through the master plan
But everybody's gone
And I've been here for too long
To face this on my own
Well I guess this is growing up
Well I guess this is growing up

And maybe
I'll see you
At a movie
Sneak preview
You'll show up
And walk by
On the arm
Of that guy
And I'll smile
And you'll wave
We'll pretend
It's okay
The charade
It won't last
When he's gone
I won't come back

And it'll happen once again
You'll turn to a friend
Someone that understands
And sees through the master plan
But everybody's gone
And you've been here for too long
To face this on your own
Well I guess this is growing up
Well, I guess this is growing up [4x]
Well, I guess this is growing up

    i guess this song is about growing up and decide you dont want to. there'll be a time when you wish ur 5 again. shit happens in life, but some of its baaad. live life how you want it- just dont regret it later. :)

    Basically how relationships in a modern society fail but you have friends to get you through and how as things change it shows you a re growing up and maturing into adulthood

    It seems to be about life, wanting to know what people think about you, people moving away, seeing people you knew, and growing up in general- how you have to face things on your own if you want to succeed
    fantastic song ;D
