I went to bed yesterday a child,
And today awoke a man.
My surprise was far from mild.
My childhood took one look ahead and ran
Because this adulthood is scary.
It has frightened my innocence away .
The adolescent thoughts that made me merry
Were replaced with repetitious thoughts of pain.
Waning is the vigor I once had
And I’m not trying to say it’s all bad
I just remember what it was like before I was sad
And I really wish that I could go back.
