"Never Grow Up"

Have you heard Taylor Swift's song, "Never Grow Up?"


I heard it yesterday morning in the car. I was driving Lincoln to the playground. It seemed so fitting that this song played. My eyes filled with tears listening to the lyrics. They were beautiful, and so very true. I could totally relate to the song. I feel myself thinking this about Lincoln almost everyday.


If you haven't heard the song yet, I strongly encourage you to....just be armed with tissues. I thought I'd share the lyrics with you...enjoy :)




Taylor Swift


"Never Grow Up"



Your little hand's 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 turn on your favorite night light
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 won't let no one break your heart
And 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 mom'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 that she's getting older too
And don't lose the way that you dance around in your pj's 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 you nothing's ever left you scarred
And even though you want to just try to never grow up

Take pictures in your mind of your childhood room
Memorize what it sounded like when your dad gets home
Remember the footsteps remember the words said
And all your little brother's favorite songs
I just realized everything I have 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 that I thought it would be
So I tuck myself in and turn my night light 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
I could still be little
Oh I don't wanna grow up wish I'd never grown 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 heart
And even though you want to please try to never grow up
Oh don't you ever grow up
Oh never grow up just never grow up


Oh, & I totally whispered the chorus to Lincoln last night while he was fast asleep, while I stroked his little cheek, and buried my face in his curly hair :)

  1. Cue tears for sure!! I found this song a month or so ago when I was looking for music for my daughter's 3rd birthday slide show. Um, even my husband cried! Then add pictures of our baby, and ugly crying commenced!
