Older

When my mother screamed in the kitchen
I'd turn the music up
Get high and try not to listen
To every little fight
'Cause neither one was right
I swore I’d never be like them
But I was just a kid back then
The older I get, the more that I see
My parents aren't heroes, they're just like me
And loving is hard, it don't always work
You just try your best not to get hurt
I used to be mad, but now I know
Sometimes it's better to let someone go
It just hadn't hit me yet
The older I get
I used to wonder why
Why they could never be happy
I used to close my eyes
And pray for a whole 'nother family
Where everything was fine
One that felt like mine
I swore I’d never be like them
But I was just a kid back then
The older I get, the more that I see
My parents aren't heroes, they're just like me
And loving is hard, it don't always work
You just try your best not to get hurt
I used to be mad, but now I know
Sometimes it's better to let someone go
It just hadn't hit me yet
The older I get
The older I get, the more that I see
My parents aren't heroes, they're just like me
And loving is hard, it don't always work
You just try your best not to get hurt
I used to be mad, but now I know
Sometimes it's better to let someone go
It just hadn't hit me yet
The older I get
