Taylor Swift - Never Grow Up Lyrics




Your little hand's wrapped around my finger
And it's so quiet in the world tonight
Your little eyelids flutter cause you're dreaming
So I tuck you in, turn on your favorite night light
To you everything's funny, you got nothing to regret
I'd give all I have, honey
If you could stay like that

Oh darling, don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up, just stay this little
Oh darling, don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up, it could stay this simple
I won't let nobody hurt you, won't let no one break your heart
And no one will desert you
Just try to never grow up, never grow up

You're in the car on the way to the movies
And you're mortified your mom's dropping you off
At 14 there's just so much you can't do
And you can't wait to move out someday and call your own shots
But don't make her drop you off around the block
Remember that she's getting older too
And don't lose the way that you dance around in your pj's getting ready for school

Oh darling, don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up, just stay this little
Oh darling, don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up, it could stay this simple
No one's ever burned you, nothing's ever left you scarred
And even though you want to, just try to never grow up

Take pictures in your mind of your childhood room
Memorize what it sounded like when your dad gets home
Remember the footsteps, remember the words said
And all your little brother's favorite songs
I just realized everything I have is someday gonna be gone

So here I am in my new apartment
In a big city, they just dropped me off
It's so much colder than I thought it would be
So I tuck myself in and turn my night light on

Wish I'd never grown up
I wish I'd never grown up

Oh I don't wanna grow up, wish I'd never grown up
I could still be little
Oh I don't wanna grow up, wish I'd never grown up
It could still be simple
Oh darling, don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up, just stay this little
Oh darling, don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up, it could stay this simple
Won't let nobody hurt you
Won't let no one break your heart
And even though you want to, please try to never grow up
Oh, don't you ever grow up
Oh, never grow up, just never grow up

  14. Elena Abdullah

    Best song❤ I just wanna look back at my comment maybe 20 years later.. and remember this time.. just a normal college student preparing for the pharmacology quiz thinking this is the worst day ever (so many drug names💔).. while it turns out I was living the best life I could ever have.
    I don't wanna grow up, wish I'd never grown up.. it could still be simple💔

    Bobble Bardsley

    Elena in 2039, I hope you got the pharma career you always wanted, or something else if it was right for you. I hope you're so very happy and I hope you remember who you were in 2019 and how that person put in so much of the hard work to get you to where you are now. 2019 Elena seems like a pretty cool person and I'm sure 20 years on you're still rocking it every day.

    Elena Abdullah

    @Bobble Bardsley thank you so much you really made my day😄🤗 best wishes for you too😁

    I wish I'd never grown up
    Oh I don't wanna grow up
    Wish I'd never grown up
    Could still be little
    Oh I don't wanna grow up
    Wish I'd never grown up
    It could still be simple

    Oh darling don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up
    Just stay this little
    Oh darling don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up
    It could stay this simple
    I won't let nobody hurt you
    Won't let no one break your heart
    And even though you want to
    Please try to never grow up
    Don't you ever grow up
    Just never grow up

  36. Rosie Jones

    I’m kind of a ‘new’ Swiftie since I first started being into Taylor’s music from 1989, so I haven’t properly listened to her earlier albums apart from RED. This is my first time properly listening through Speak Now, and despite knowing a few and liking many of the songs, I find this song so relatable. From when I was about nine years old, I used to get terrified of growing up, because I thought I’d have nobody, that I’d have to go off into the world and live alone, and I was not very good at coping with any tiny change, so the idea of being an adult was petrifying. Every single year, unlike most other kids (or so I thought) I would get upset before my birthday because, as I forever told my parents whilst crying, I liked the age I was and didn’t want to be a year older. Yes, it seemed like I was having a middle-aged crisis before I even hit my teens. Well, the older I got, the less upset I got, but every year was the same until about fifteen. I’ve always *enjoyed* my actual birthday (well, apart from one time, but that was because my poor dad planned a trip that I hated. How ungrateful of me LOL) on the day, it was just leading up to it that I felt sadness at having to put one more year in the past that I could never get back. So now I’m turning eighteen this year - actually an adult in legal terms - but at least now it does excite me in some ways. Of course I’m sad that I will be leaving my childhood behind, but what I’ve learned now is that you don’t know when you turn eighteen how to suddenly *be* an adult... you just have more opportunities, more control. You’re the same person, just a bit older. You can *choose* to do things, but that doesn’t mean you have to. However, by doing this there are so many things that you miss out on, too. Being an adult means you can actually *do* something about the dreams you’ve had all your life, which is scary but amazing too. And I also know now that you’re only as old as you choose to be. You’re never really the same age either - you still try to act more responsible that people who are even just slightly younger than you, and you still get crazy excited like a hyper three-year-old when you find your favourite song comes on the radio or someone says you’re going to get ice cream. But what I’m getting to is this song reminds me so much of how scared and nervous I used to feel about adulthood, and how the song conveys what I *thought* my future adult self would be telling me, but it’s not. Instead, I’d be saying that of course there are scary times, and you still get nervous about stupid things and excited about other stupid things, but you being an adult just means your inner child can have a choice. It’s just that inner child has become a better person just by living life for that little bit longer.
    Use and remember your childhood to be the best adult, and person of any age, possible. And also remind yourself of all the wonderful things that never would have happened if you never did grow up. Thank you for this song Taylor :)
