Mayday Parade - Until You're Big Enough Lyrics




Troubled youth
Got the blues
Take a walk in those shoes
See how they fit for a while
I can bend
It's all pretend
It's just fake until you mean it
And one day you'll mean it for real

Here's to new beginnings
And starting over
When you hope all's forgiven
It's best not to ask for awhile
I believe some can see how to strike when it's red hot
And crumble the castle walls

If I bite the hook would you tell me I'm wrong?
You speak like a man who believes he's got no destiny
He's content
A trouble so great that you shouldn't have gone through
With a clarity I've never seen
I will build you up until you're big enough to take me out

I told you we'd see it through
But you don't believe
And that's the part that kills me
(And that's the part)
Promise me, promise me you will

If I bite the hook would you tell me I'm wrong?
You speak like a man who believes he's got no destiny
He's content
A trouble so great that you shouldn't have gone through
With a clarity I've never seen
I will build you up until you're big enough to pick me up

Mayday Parade Until You're Big Enough Comments
  1. Jelly Bean

    My favorite band + My Favorite song = Happy Me ... Can't wait for Warped Tour

  2. Don't Threaten Me With A Good Time

    my literal childhood band. its been years and I'm back being the one i used to be, the girl who's so in love with music as this that helps her throughout the day, live within the lyrics and know that she can get through just about anything.

  3. Julridwan Idjirael

    one man drinking games and 12 through 15 fusion

  4. fuddles

    looking forward to any movies to use this song in scenes

  5. Ana Rizza

    I will build you up until you're big enough..to pick me up.

  6. Daisy Martinez

    It's just fake until you mean. One day, you'll mean it for real... 😔

  7. Phillip Anthony C. JR.

    different but still amazing. <3

  8. Ashly villalta

    ❤️ jfc I love them so much.
    I hope they come to Houston again soon ❣❣

  9. Mark Edison Calderon

    Reminds me of their song 12 through 15... And yeah... their songs never failed to make me cry.

  10. Monstar Turtle

    I bought the album. Guilty. My Favorite Songs on it are "Until Your Big Enough" and "Just Out Of Reach". Troubled Youth, Got The Blues. ♥♥♥

  11. Aubriella Tash

    this song makes me cry every time

  12. Hannah Curry

    I need a music video!

  13. Akmal Aziman

    If I bite the hook would you tell me I'm wrong?
    Speak like a man who believes he's got no destiny
    He's content
    Troubles so great that you shouldn't have gone through
    With a clarity I've never seen
    I will build you up until you're big enough
    To take me home"

    Can someone tell me what's the meaning of these lines?

    Yumi

    +akmal rollins using genius.com as a reference for this:
    the first three lines tell are about when he start saying to others that he wants to kill himself, they tell him he’s wrong, like they really believe that everything will be okay. the next two show that he suddenly sees the truth in all the pain that he’s felt and how he made it seem so much worse than it really was. the last two show that he decides to start trying to get better until he’s strong enough to be able to care for himself as well as others.

    Akmal Aziman

    +yumiko Thanks, wow . What a song . Deep, deep meaning

    Kostas1601

    +yumiko Wow, I had a whole theory on this song thinking the lyrics were "I will build you up till you're big enough to take me out (and then pick me up)" talked about self confidence and feeling of self worth, and how he will build this second version of himself up until he destroys his old self...this actually ties in with the beginning of the song that says "And one day you'll mean it for real". Guess I heard what I wanted to hear lol

    haise

    +Kostas1601 my theory is that this whole album talks about friendship,relationship & conflicts as a whole. if you may notice by the track, it starts to crumble but by the last 4 tracks it starts to recover and give hope and meaning to the three words i said earlier.

  14. ariel rickle

    This album reminds me of songs that they would play on Life Is Strange.

    LYRICS: 
    Troubled youth, got the blues
    Take a walk in those shoes and see how they fit for awhile
    I can bend, it's all pretend
    It's just fake until you mean it and one day you'll mean it for real
    Here's to new beginnings and starting over
    When you hope all's forgiven it's best not to ask for awhile

    You speak like a man who believes he's got no destiny, he's content

    I will build you up until you're big enough to take me out

    You don't believe and that's the part that kills me
    I will build you up until you're big enough to pick me up



    Welcome...

  39. Sam O'Donoghue

    It's like 12 Through 15 style guitar with One Man Drinking Games. This song is nice.

  40. Macie Ruzeski

    their cover is meant to have three lines for an m and two for a p right

    Shakira Jensen

    +Aquatic Ink this is a revelation

    Chad Hogan

    +Aquatic Ink you da man

  41. Des Abayari

  45. Sarah Klammer

    one man drinking games part 2

    Sarah Klammer

    +A Blue Green Earth honestly I didn't even realize that was Jason in One Man Drinking Games...but I was actually more referring to the actual melody and guitar work and overall storyline.

    exportyourpower

    @A Blue Green Earth haha that is your opinion, then. I like derek singing ballad. But he really should do his 'desperate screaming'. Its very like, giving a goosebump but seriously his screaming doesnt remind me of jason. And one man drinking games, listen to the live ones. Its better.

    A Blue Green Earth

    +Syukri Roslan I did listen to the live versions of transmogrification and one of them will destroy the other, and I can already here them losing their voices because this style of singing is not sustainable.

    Olivia Waldroup

    no wonder i like it so much XD

    Sarah Klammer

    Olivia Waldroup same lol. thanks for replying with something positive xD

  46. Victoria Joy

    So much love for this new album. Mayday parade never fail to impress!!!

  47. k_aatherine

    The guitar solo in the background slightly sounds like One Man Drinking Games

    Pols Wolf

    So true :D

    Kidney Disease Is Not A Joke

    +k_aatherine I thought the same thing.

    Maty 12

    +k_aatherine The riff is like a mix of that and the intro of Call Me Hopeless, Not Romantic

    สรรพสิทธิ์ มิ่งเมือง

    +k_aatherine Me to

    Ana Rizza

    Sounds like 12 Though 15

  48. Ronnie Winchester
