The first single from "The Concept Of Growing Up".


Driving down Picton road

Heading back home

Been away for 6 long days

I just need to be back with family

Been absent minded for the last few months

I needed distance more than anyone

Spent some time with my girl on the coast

Cause I needed clarity the most

~and I know my younger self would be disappointed in the man I came to be

But I hope I'll make it up to him eventually

Chasing pipe dreams and filling empty space

Made for the last year to become a total waste

Keep me awake so I don't fall back to fantasies

Dreaming led to surreal memories

But I can't forget all the mistakes I made

Cause I'm reminded almost every single day~

Take me back interstate for another weekend

Losing track of time with some of my closest friends

Sleeping in cars at 3am

Let me rewind to do it all again

And I'll blast Trophy Eyes from my car stereo

Hoping somehow I'll remember my way home

I'll take an extra lap around my block

To finish the last song before I stop

~and I know my younger self would be disappointed in the man I came to be

Sleepless nights sitting up watching mindless tv

Lyrics on ink blotted sheets

I haven't touched my guitar in weeks

I know I always said that I'm going just fine

But more often than not it turned out to be a lie

And I can't forget the mistakes that I've made 

Cause I'm reminded almost every fucking day~

I'll try to lift my spirits

Because I know I don't deserve this

I'll bring a smile back around

Cause it takes more muscles to frown
