Cara, Alessia - Growing Pains Lyrics

Make my way through the motions
I try to ignore it
But home's looking farther
The closer I get
Don't know why
I can't see the end
Is it over yet?

A short leash
And a short fuse don't match
They tell me it ain't that bad
Now don't you overreact
So I just hold my breath
Don't know why
I can't see the sun
When young should be fun (fun)

And I guess the bad
Can get better
Gotta be wrong
Before it's right
Every happy phrase
Engraved in my mind
And I've always been a go-getter
There's truth
In every word I write
But still the growing pains, growing pains
They're keeping me up at night

Eh eh, hey yeah, yeah, yeah...
And I can't hide, 'cause growing pains are keeping me up at night
Eh eh, hey yeah, yeah, yeah...
And I can't hide, 'cause growing pains are keeping me up at night

Try to mend what's left of my content incomprehension
As I take on the stress of the mess that I've made
Don't know if I even care for "grown"
If it's just alone, yeah

And I guess the bad
Can get better
Gotta be wrong
Before it's right
Every happy phrase
Engraved in my mind
And I've always been a go-getter
There's truth
In every word I write
But still the growing pains, growing pains
They're keeping me up at night

Eh eh, hey yeah, yeah, yeah...
And I can't hide, 'cause growing pains are keeping me up at night
Eh eh, hey yeah, yeah, yeah...
And I can't hide, 'cause growing pains are keeping me up at night

Starting to look like Ms. Know-it-all
Can't take her own advice
Can't find pieces of my peace of mind, I cry
More than I want to admit but I can't lie to myself, to anyone
'Cause phoning it in isn't any fun
Can't run back to my youth the way I want to
The days my brother was quicker to fool
AM radio, not much to do
Used monsters as an excuse
To lie awake
Now the monsters are the ones that I have to face
No band-aids for the growing pains

Eh eh, hey yeah, yeah, yeah...
No band-aids for the growing pains

    heard this on the radio in my car for the first time and listened to it carefully. i broke down in my car, this is exactly how i feel. i have been ignoring my problems in hopes that way they'd go away but i've lied to myself for too long and now they grow on me and they've gotten worse and i have to deal with them alone despite the problems not being caused by me. thank you alessia, you have perfectly expressed how i feel.

    Can't compete with the acoustic version of the song. The production messed up the beauty of this tune.

  86. Leonardo Símuta

    This is exactly what being a teenager feels like. It's so sad that only plastic songs are trending right now. This is meaningful, soul-touching music.

It was the very first thing I saw when this video came out and I seen nobody else mention it so here I am just makes me cringe and think it’s so unprofessional now they didn’t see it🤧 such a great song and video tho. Just that part gets me everytime

    Mariah Smith
