(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)
