about

Mother, Father you have raised me right.
Don't you bother to wait up at night.
'Cause your baby's grow'n and she's go'n there strong.
She might have inked her skin, but it's nothing she's done wrong.

'Cause I have been to the desert,
I have tasted sweat,
and I have once or twice danced naked in love.

And I have held the hand of life
and slowly watched his rhythm die
and sang deep for his chariot ride.

Yes, I am young. I am old.
I was born a century ago.
And I may be a little wild
for your ideal only child but
I have big plans to stick around for while

No I don't want to grow up
I just want to grow down.
So take me down where it's safe,
down where it's sound.

No I don't want to grow up
I just want to grow down.
So take me down where it's safe,
down where it's sound.

Mother, Father you have raised me right.
Don't you bother to wait up at night.
'Cause your baby's grow'n and she's go'n there strong.
She might have inked her skin, but it's nothings he's done wrong.

'Cause I have seen the weather,
I have felt the rules,
and I only broke 'em when I needed to.

And I have not slept at night,
wide awake and wondering why
my heart is beating.

You can do anything that you want to.
You can leave it all behind.
But I will take mine, rewind, look back on all the times
we cried and tried,
laughed and lied.
Remember feeling afraid and alive?

No I don't want to grow up,
I just want to grow down.
So take me down where it's safe,
down where it's sound.

No I don't want to grow up,
I just want to grow down.
So take me down where it's safe,
down where it's sound.

Mother, father you have raised me right.
