Wish I'd Never Grow Up



Your little hands 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 and turn on your favorite nightlight

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
Wont let no one break your heart
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 mama'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 she's getting older too
And don't lose the way that you dance around in your PJs 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
Nothing's ever left you scarred
Even though you want to, just try to never grow up

Take pictures in your mind of your childhood room
Memorize what is sounded like what your dad gets home
Remember the footsteps, remember the words said
And all your little brother's favorite songs
I just realized everything I had 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 than I thought it would be
So I tuck myself in and turn my nightlight 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
Could still be little
Oh I don't wanna grow 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 heat
And even through to you want to, please try to never grow up
Don't you ever grow up
Just never grow up





As you are reading this, I am finishing up finals week! I feel as though this song goes perfectly with the end of finals week because I only have 3 semesters left of college; only a year and a half! This is crazy to me-- I feel like I just graduated from high school! Sometimes I take college for granted, but I most definitely am in no rush to graduate! As Eloise would say, "I love it too too much!" As I head home to Pittsburgh, I wish everyone safe holiday travels!
Yours,
sCe

Oh I do so understand! I blinked, turned around and now I am in the middle of my 20th year of teaching! How did time fly so quickly? Life is just so amazing, enjoy each and every phase! And sweetie, NEVER grow up all the way!

Love,
Mrs. Kindergarten
