lyrics

when did my feet grow to be so long
when did I lose my last baby tooth, I just noticed it was gone
where did that wrinkle come from
when did these freckles show up
even my voice sounds wrong

cause the last thing I knew, the sky was so blue
I was in the back yard rolling down the big hill
momma tucked me in bed, kissed me on my forehead
life was simple and sweet, just as it should be
I swear, a moment ago I was six years old

when did I move out of mom and dad's
when did I stop listening to boy bands
when did I make friends with grown-ups
where did these bills all come from
something about this feels wrong

cause the last thing I knew, I was painfully blue
covers over my head, crying in bed
told the boy of my dreams I love him hopelessly
but he don't feel the same, now I'm drowning in shame
I swear just a moment ago, I was sixteen years old

call me crazy
lately I've been weighing the possibility I have yet to see
all of my best days are still on their way
