John Martyn – Who's Grown Up Now lyrics

On this June morning, I give you warning
I might just fly away across the dawn
I looked into my lover's eyes, there I saw the sunrise
There I saw the birth of something new
And suddenly I'm not the same little boy
'Cause I can't see the people that I meet
All I see is her
Since the time she went away I just exist from day to day
I can't live, I can't love without her near
Sitting here in my darkened room, whistling through the velvet gloom
Wondering what the hell I'm doing here
For suddenly I'm not the same little boy
And I can't see the people that I meet
All I see is her
There's just me and my conscience now, there's no one to tell me why or how
I fell away, it's time I must return
We might recover what has been, turn all the pieces round again
Change and rearrange, begin again
