00:00:10
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

00:00:22
Sometimes I don't know who I am
Sometimes I question why I'm here
I just wanna be a good dad

00:00:30
Will I be? I have no idea
They say girls shouldn't be tough

00:00:36
And moms should raise their kids at home
But baby, I know that that isn't true

00:00:41
Cause your momma's the toughest person I
know
I wanna raise you to be like her

00:00:46
And watch you show the world how to do it
on your own
I'm still tryna figure out who I am

00:00:52
I don't wanna mess this up or do this wrong
I'm gonna be there for your first breath

00:00:59
I don't know if I'll be there for your first step
I can promise you that I'll try to work less

00:01:05
But the tour's routed, and I got this album
Put in so many hours, and I just want the
outcome

00:01:10
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

00:01:16
But I've got a world to sing to and you at the
same time
I won't spoil you, you can trust that

00:01:21
For your sweet sixteen, you get a bus pass
Had your heart broken? Been there, done
that

00:01:27
I love you and I can't give you enough of
that
Get back to community that raised you up

00:01:32
Read Langston Hughes, I suggest "A Raisin
in the Sun"
Listen to Sam Cooke, a change gon' come

00:01:38
You put the work in, don't worry about the
praise, my love

00:01:41
Don't try to change the world, find
something that you love

00:01:44
And do it every day
Do that for the rest of your life
And eventually, the world will change

00:01:52
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

00:02:09
I'm the person you become
If I'm still growing up, up, up, up
I'm still growing up, up, up, up
I'm still growing up

00:02:26
I recommend that you read "The Alchemist"
Listen to your teachers,
but cheat in calculus

00:02:32
Tell the truth, regardless of the consequence
And every day, give your momma a
compliment

00:02:38
Take your girl to the prom
But don't get too drunk hanging out the limo
Slow dance with your woman in your arms

00:02:45
Sneak her in after, but boy,
you better tiptoe
Don't wake your mom up, do yoga,
learn 'bout karma

00:02:51
Find God, but leave the dogma

00:02:57
The quickest way to happiness?
Learning to be selfless

00:03:00
Ask more questions,
talk about yourself less
Study David Bowie,
James Baldwin and 2Pac

00:03:06
Watch the sun set with best friends from a
rooftop
Wear a helmet - don't be stupid!
Jaywalk, but look before you do it

00:03:14
If it snows, go outside, build a jump, get
some help
Get a sled, thrash the hill with your friends,
'til it melts

00:03:20
Go to festivals, camp, fall in love and dance
You're only young once, my love, one, this is
your chance

00:03:25
Take risks, cause life moves so fast
You're only young once, my love, one, this is
your chance

00:03:31
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

00:03:48
I'm the person you become
If I'm still growing up, up, up, up
I'm still growing up, up, up, up

00:04:04
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

00:04:21
I'm the person you become
If I'm still growing up, still growing up, still
growing up

00:04:31
I'm still growing up, still growing up, still
growing up
I'm still growing up, heeh
I'm still growing up, ooh

00:04:48
I'm still growing up
I'm still growing up

I'm at a party I don't wanna be at

And I don't ever wear a suit and tie,

yeah

Wonderin' if I could sneak out the back

Jet plane headed up to the sky

Spread wings in the clouds, getting high

We ain't hit a rave in a while

So take me back to London

Yeah, I was born a misfit

Grew up 10 miles from the town of Ipswich

Wanted to make it big, I wished it to

I feel it, can you feel it tonight?

I feel the fire between you and I

I mean it, don't you turn off the light

Though I don't wanna leave you ever, no

When I was in the third grade I thought that

I was gay,

'Cause I could draw, my uncle was,

and I kept my room straight

I went to the moped store, said, "Fuck it."

Salesman's like "What up, what's your

And I'm like "Honestly, I don't know nothing

They say boys don't cry
