Today I'm gonna write a sad song
Gonna make it really long
So that everyone can see
That I'm very unhappy

I wish I wasn't always wrong
I wish it wasn't always my fault
The finger that your pointing has knocked me on my knees
And all you need to know is I'm so sorry

It's not like me
It's maturity that I'm lacking
So don't, don't let me go
Just let me know that growing up goes slow.

I wonder what my mom and dad would say
If I told them that I cry each day
It's hard enough to live so far away

I wish I wasn't always cold
I wish it wasn't always alone
When the party is over how will I get home?
And all you need to know is I'm so sorry

It's not like me
It's maturity that I'm lacking
So don't, don't let me go
Just let me know that growing up goes slow.

If all the rules are meant to bend
And you swore you were my friend
Now I have to start all over again

Cause no ones going to take your place
And I'm scared I'll never save
All the pieces of the love we made.

And I'm so sorry, it's not like me
It's maturity that I'm lacking
So don't, don't let me go
Just let me know that I can slip and fall

And you won't let me go just to let me know
That growing up goes slow.

And I'm so sorry, it's not like me!
It's maturity that I'm lacking
So don't, don't let me go
Just let me know that growing up goes slow.

    In this song I believe she is talking about growing up and how almost anything she does is never good enough. She wants to make others happy but keeps messing up. She wishes to please the ones she loves, but is not mature and still growing up and learning.

    It's about christina lost the love of her life and her heart is broken. Because she has done something not mature so she's blaming herself and she cries everyday.

    For me, i interpret it as a song about growing up and dealing with changes. I think of someone who's gone off to college singing this song (i wonder what my mom dad would say... /it's hard enough to live so far away). Basically, i feel it's a song about growing up, and learning to deal with changes. :)

    It sort of means that she lost someone whom she really cares about because that person doesn't understand her lack of maturity and thus, leaving her and making her sad to the point that she blames herself for everything.

    You said nice things lousing me in and i never saw you dirty side. You crushed my dreams and said mean things fillings me with unending tears.
