Every time I think of growing up
I find out that I just slipped back, I got it all wrong
You know I feel younger than I did
When I was younger on a backwards track

I thought by now I could have figured it all out
Instead I'm further back
Feels kinda stupid but I feel 16 in my head
But I guess, it's only 5 years back

But I won't see the signs, it took so long
But you were always on my mind, yeah

For all the times I've tried
To take a little time out for myself
I'm just growing all alone again
But I find in my mind that I'm not

Time is running out
And I just want to say I'm sorry now
Before I'm all alone again
And I'm broken and cold

The ageing superhero in me is tired
Because he's lived too fast for too long
And he still longs to be inspired

I feel old, feel broke, feel cold
And I can't fight back, it sounds so stupid I
But it's gone, this train won't run
Guess, it must be the track

But I won't see the signs, it took so long
But you were always on my mind, yeah

For all the times I've tried
To take a little time out for myself
I'm just growing all alone again
But I find in my mind that I'm not

Time is running out
And I just want to say I'm sorry now
Before I'm all alone again
And I'm broken and cold

But I won't see the signs, it took so long
But you were always on my mind, yeah

For all the times I've tried
To take a little time out for myself
I'm just growing all alone again
But I find in my mind that I'm not

Time is running out
And I just want to say I'm sorry now
Before I'm all alone again
And I'm broken and cold

The ageing superhero in me is tired
Because he's lived too fast for too long
And he still longs to be inspired
