I'm Still Growing Up
writer: Marc J. Kuchner

I was stuck in a black hole, aching in my teenage soul
Starting to get old before my time
I was sulking by the gym, my teacher wandered in
And asked I him for a message or a sign
He said hey, I can sympathize. One look in your weepy eyes
Reminds me how life can be tough
But I'll let you in on a little clue: I might not look as young as you
But if you think the way I do then things are looking up, 'cause

Every time a year goes by
Life gets better
I feel a little more pride
With every birthday letter
With every new sunrise
I get a little bolder
Some people just get older
But I'm still growing up

So I went off to college, to get myself some knowledge
And maybe change my point of view
I found a little romance, went jogging round the grandstands
And joined in a band to sing the blues
One night before a party,
My Dad called to talk to me
He asked me am I doing OK?
I said Dad ain't no point in the papers that I turn in
But I still keep on learning something every day, and

Every time a year goes by
Life gets better
I feel a little more pride
With every birthday letter
With every new sunrise
I get a little bolder
Some people just get older
But I'm still growing up

Yeah, I'm still changing, I'm still running
I'm still always trying to get away with something
Yeah I won't get taller, but I'll still keep moving on
Till I'm a hundred and one, cause

Every time a year goes by
Life gets better
I feel a little more pride
With every birthday letter
And every new sunrise
I get a little bolder
Some people just get older
(But I'm still growing up)
Every time a year goes by
You know, life gets sweeter
With every new sunrise
I see a little deeper
With every changing tide
Sometimes the water's colder
But I keep getting bolder
Some people just get older
But I'm still growing up
(I walk a little prouder)
I'm still growing up
(I laugh a little louder)
I'm still growing up
(Yeah, life gets better)
I'm still growing up
