Iris I think it was fate that I discovered this song. Right now, I'm a senior in high school and I'm terrified for the next chapter of my life that's about to come. I can't help but think,
"i don’t want to grow up anymore
it just seems unfair,
why should i have to bare this?
i don’t want to grow up anymore
have to learn, have to break,
have to learn from my mistakes."
I keep looking back and wanting to be the girl I was when I was younger, but she's not me. Thank you for this wonderful track!

lyrics

starry eyed and terrified, i try to catch the girl
gentle, kind, childish figure girl.
she’s everything i want to be, i want to be like her
gentle, kind, childish figure girl.

i don’t want to grow up anymore
i want to stay my age
i want to not grow old
i don’t want to grow up anymore
i want to be myself
i want to be someone else.

i want to be like
the girl

pale stare and long blonde hair she dances down the beach
perfectly, childish figure girl
this vision i’ve affixed of her is simply out of blue
the obsession with the childish figure girl

i don’t want to grow up anymore
it just seems unfair,
why should i have to bare this?
i don’t want to grow up anymore
have to learn, have to break,
have to learn from my mistakes.

i want to be like
the girl
