Growing pains

Hey momma, I got something to tell you

Hey mom, sit down for a minute

You know I’m growing up right?

And my life needs less of you in it

I don’t mean that I don’t love you

And I’ll always need you there

But mom I’ve got to be on my own right now

N If you don’t cut those strings right now

They’ll tear

My heart right out and yours right with it

because I cannot be me with you always on guard

Watching over me holding my hand

Holding me back

Keeping me from what I’m meant to be

So mom it hurts but it’s going to get better

The space will bring us closer together

And you might not get it right now or ever

But one way or the other

A boy’s gotta do what it takes to be a man
