Taylor Swift – Never Grow Up lyrics

Your little hand's wrapped around my finger
And it's so quiet in the world tonight
Your little eyelids flutter cause you're dreaming
So I tuck you in, turn on your favorite night light
To you everything's funny, you got nothing to regret
I'd give all I have, honey
If you could stay like that

Oh darling, don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up, just stay this little
Oh darling, don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up, it could stay this simple
I won't let nobody hurt you, won't let no one break your heart
And no one will desert you

Just try to never grow up, never grow up

You're in the car on the way to the movies
And you're mortified your mom's dropping you off
At 14 there's just so much you can't do
And you can't wait to move out someday and call your own shots
But don't make her drop you off around the block
Remember that she's getting older too
And don't lose the way that you dance around in your pj's getting ready for school

Oh darling, don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up, just stay this little
Oh darling, don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up, it could stay this simple
No one's ever burned you, nothing's ever left you scarred
And even though you want to, just try to never grow up

Take pictures in your mind of your childhood room
Memorize what it sounded like when your dad gets home
Remember the footsteps, remember the words said
And all your little brother's favorite songs
I just realized everything I have is someday gonna be gone

So here I am in my new apartment
In a big city, they just dropped me off
It's so much colder that I thought it would be
So I tuck myself in and turn my night light on

Wish I'd never grown up
I wish I'd never grown up

Oh I don't wanna grow up, wish I'd never grown up
I could still be little
Oh I don't wanna grow up, wish I'd never grown up
It could still be simple
Oh darling, don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up, just stay this little
Oh darling, don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up, it could stay this simple
Won't let nobody hurt you
Won't let no one break your heart
And even though you want to, please try to never grow up
Oh, don't you ever grow up
Oh, never grow up, just never grow up

    Everytime I sing this song, I cry, everytime I jst read the lyrics, it sends down shivers down my spine, I think taylor is a powerful writer, and alwyas knows how to woo an audience, I am the first child inmy family, and to my mother, I am always her baby, even though I say "mummy shove off, im a big girllie now, i dont need you to baby me," I'm 14 this september, and taylor has made me realise that maybe I should be more nice to my mum, shes not even old yet, (*36*) yet she acts really embarrassing, picking out frillly pink dresses, and picking out clothes for me to take to my friends, I pick them up and put them aawya again, coz they really horriblw. She only does it coz she knows I ghtae it x I love my mummy x

    For me, it means live your life while you're young 'cause you won't stay young forever, even you don't want to grow. Atleast when you grow, you have the experience of a happy childhood to reminisce and you don't have the hesitation that you could make when you grow up like danmcing with your father and open problems to your mother. Unlike me, I really hate my parents, but when I heard this song, it makes me realize that I should love my parents because they are the gratest gift that god gave to me and should keep them as long as they are just around.

    I really love this song. And I never, never, never, never want to grow up. I find myself atually getting depressed (sort of) when I relize that I am getting older. So, yea. But now I am kinda just letting life take its own path and I am not so worried what age I am. Not worried about the way ahead. I am just taking it slow. I guess. But I looove this song. : D. Thanks taylor!

    I thank taylor so much for making me realize that. I wont stay young forever. I'm growing up(12) now. And I need to enjoy my life. I've always told my mum that she's really embarrassing me. That I hated her. Thanks to this song. I realized that. My mum wont stay alive forever. Every time I hear this I cry. Now I realized that I need to take care of my parents and just wait for the time when i'll finally grow up. Right now. I'm having the time of my life thank to this song. Thank you taylor :) and I love you mummy.

    I'm almost grown up, compared to my cousins. I'm 12 and I'm an only child. My favourite cousin left the country a 3.5 years ago. I was there when she was born and was in fact the first to hold her in my arms(even before her parents). We lived in the same apartment with our parents. We spent all our time together. Although I might not be the one whom she loves most in the world, but I really love her the most. She is just a child and she will meet many more people in her life whom she will love much more than me and I guess no one will ever know how much I love her. I guess my Uncle and Aunt just had to set up a business in the country 7 hours flight away from where I lived. The last time I met her was nine month ago hardly for a day at a family emergency. She'll be six years this July (2015). This is the song I'm going to sing to her on her birthday when I call her. I really regret not having the time of my life when I was her age and now I have a thousand problems to deal with. I never want her to grow up, I'll promise to let no one hurt her. I never want her to forget me or the things we had done when she was little. Thank you Taylor. I can't stop myself from crying right now. I want her to come back.
