เนื้อเพลง

Growing Up (长大) - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis/Ed Sheeran (艾德·希兰)

They say boys don't cry

 

But your dad has shed a lot of tears

 

They say I should be a strong man

 

But baby I'm still filled with fear

 

Sometimes I don't know who I am

Sometimes I question why I'm here

 

I just wanna be a good dad

 

Will I be I have no idea

 

They say girls shouldn't be tough

 

And moms should raise their kids at home

 

But baby I know that that isn't true

 

Cause your momma's the toughest person I know

 

I wanna raise you to be like her

And watch you show the world

How to do it on your own

 

I'm still tryna figure out who I am

I don't wanna mess this up or do this wrong

 

I'm gonna be there for your first breath

 

I don't know if I'll be there for your first step

 

I can promise you that I'll try to work less

But the tour's routed and I got this album

Put in so many hours and I just want the outcome

To be something that I can look back and I can be proud of

Don't wanna be a dad that's living in FaceTime

 

But I've got a world to sing to and you at the same time

I won't spoil you you can trust that

For your sweet 16 you get a bus pass

 

Had your heart broken Been there done that

I love you and I can't give you enough of that

Get back to community that raised you up

Read Langston Hughes I suggest a raisin in the sun

Listen to Sam Cooke a change gon' come

You put the work in don't worry about the praise my love

 

Don't try to change the world find something that you love

And do it every day

 

Do that for the rest of your life

 

And eventually the world will change

 

I'll be patient one more month

 

You'll wrap your fingers round my thumb

 

Times are changing I know but who am I if

I'm the person you become

 

If I'm still growing up up up up

 

If I'm still growing up up up up

 

I'm still growing up

I recommend that you read The Alchemist

 

Listen to your teachers but cheat in calculus

Tell the truth regardless of the consequence

 

And every day give your momma a compliment

Take your girl to the prom

But don't get too drunk hanging out the limo

 

Slow dance with your woman in your arms

Sneak her in after but boy you better tiptoe

Don't wake your mom up

Do yoga learn 'bout karma

Find God but leave the dogma

 

The quickest way to happiness

Learning to be selfless

Ask more questions talk about yourself less

Study David Bowie James Baldwin and 2Pac

 

Watch the sun set with best friends from a rooftop

 

Wear a helmet don't be stupid

 

Jaywalk but look before you do it

If it snows go outside build a jump get some help

Get a sled thrash the hill

With your friends till it melts

Go to festivals camp fall in love and dance

You're only young once my loved one

This is your chance

Take risks cause life moves so fast

You're only young once my loved one

This is your chance

I'll be patient one more month

 

You'll wrap your fingers round my thumb

 

Times are changing I know but who am I if

I'm the person you become

 

If I'm still growing up up up up

If I'm still growing up up up up

 

I'll be patient one more month

 

You'll wrap your fingers round my thumb

 

Times are changing I know but who am I if

I'm the person you become

 

If I'm still growing up growing up growing up

 

If I'm still growing up growing up growing up

If I'm still growing up

 

I'm still growing up

 

I'm still growing up

 

I'm still growing up
