I don't want to work anymore
I just want to live instead
Everyone is saying I'm all grown up
I've come a long way, but I'm not there yet
I've come a long way, but I'm not there yet.

Where did the summer go?
I was just hitting my stride
It's this insanity, takes me along for the ride
I swam the oceans and the seven seas
Knowing that fate would strike eventually
You've got to hit rock bottom if you want to come out on top

I don't want to work anymore
I just want to live instead
Everyone is saying I'm all grown up
I've come a long way, but I'm not there yet
I've come a long way, but I'm not there yet.

Where did the winter go?
I just got used to the cold
And it's immaturity, keeps me from getting too old
Now I saw a snowfall on a thousand towns
With a sense of purpose I had just been found
You've got to run real far before you ever feel close to home

I don't want to work anymore
I just want to live instead
Everyone is saying I'm all grown up
I've come a long way, but I'm not there yet
I've come a long way, but I'm not there yet.

You know I'm not there yet
Been working myself into a lonely state
You know I'm not there yet
Been breaking my back to find another way
It's been a long time coming
I deserve to take a holiday

I don't want to work anymore
I just want to live instead
Everyone is saying I'm all grown up
I've come a long way, but I'm not there yet
I've come a long way, but I'm not there yet.
