Derek & The Dominos – Keep On Growing lyrics

I was laughing
Playing in the streets, I was unknowing
I didn't know my fate

The game of love, but never really showing
I thought that love could wait

I was a young man and sure to go astray
You walked right into my life
And told me love would find a way

To keep on growing
Keep on growing
Keep on growing

I was standing
Looking in the face of one who loved me
Feeling so ashamed

And praying, Lord, that she could understand me
But I didn't know her name

She took my hand in hers and told me I was wrong
She said, "You're gonna be all right, boy
Oh, just as long"

"As you keep on growing
Keep on growing
Keep on growing"
Yeah, yeah, yeah


Someday baby, who knows where or when, Lord
Just you wait and see

We'll be walking
Together hand in hand, along forever
Woman just you and me

'Cause time is gonna change us
Lord, and I know it's true
Our love is gonna keep on glowing
And growing and it's all we gotta do

Keep on growing
Keep on growing
Keep on growing
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Keep on growing
Keep on growing
Keep on growing
