Afraid of growing up. Even though it is rather hard, it's best to embrace it because it really isn't all that bad.


Time is nothing but a four-letter word
Goes by with many phases and many faces, that's for sure
Because we're doing nothing but getting older

Now becomes old and old becomes new
People stay or leave and some will die, that's my cue
To tell me that I am just getting older

One year goes by
We can't go back no matter how hard we try
Life will go on and on and on and on

Sometimes I feel like that I'm a man-child
I'm a child at heart, but I'm a man outside, isn't that wild?
I guess it's because I am afraid of getting older

But it works for Peter Pan
He never grows old
By choice, he stays young
For us, that offer will never be sold
We just have to accept the fact we're getting older

Sometimes I think
Wouldn't it be nice if we could go somewhere far, far away?
Maybe that's our Neverland

It's okay
It's okay to be afraid of getting older
It's all right to cry if you want to
Leave the scared behind and embrace getting older
We're getting older
And it's gonna be alright
We're getting older
But the child inside never dies
And it never will
