Paramore – Grow Up lyrics

[Verse:]
I told 'em all to stick it
I left town with a dime to my name
Said I’m done with all of my fake friends
Self-righteous pawns in a losing game
Got my band and a light that won't go out
Been burning since the day I was born
So I cry just a little then I'll dry my eyes
‘Cause I’m not a little girl no more

[Chorus:]
Some of us have to grow up sometimes
And so if I have to I’m gonna leave you behind
Some of us have to grow up sometimes
And so if I have to I’m gonna leave you behind


[Verse:]
Stood in line for so long just to picket
Something I will never understand
Aren't you tired of always being mad at the world
Won’t you just admit you don’t care?
Lady I don’t want your pity
So don’t feel sad for me
I got a love I would die for and a song to sing
Maybe we’re both just living out our dreams


[Chorus:]
Some of us have to grow up sometimes
And so if I have to I’m gonna leave you behind
Some of us have to grow up sometimes
And so if I have to I’m gonna leave you behind

[Verse:]
We get along for the most part
Me in reality, to lighten the dark
We live alone
In two different worlds
Me in a fantasy
And you in your memories
But we get along


[Bridge:]
We get along
For the most part!
We get along
Yea, for the most part!
We get along
For the most part!
We get along
We get along
We get along


[Chorus: X2]
Some of us have to grow up sometimes
And so if I have to I’m gonna leave you behind
Some of us have to grow up sometimes
And so if I have to I’m gonna leave you behind (leave you behind)

    This song is golden, because it about how Hayley is sick of all the glitz and glory that people get for no reason, and how they are so spoiled. She’s sick of all her friends that ACT like her friends because they get something out of it. She says she’s got all her support that she needs, and that she may cry for a little, but they she’ll dry it up and move on to become better.
    Overall, this song is about growing up, how to come out of immaturity, how to get through growing up, and what it’s going to be like when you do grow up.
