We Just Grew UpMature

We Just Grew Up (4/8/2012)

I wish there was a simple reason
I wish one of us had done some kind of crime
But growing up differently
Well that's just nature
Nothing we can really do

I wish I could hate you, Oh
It would be easier
But no
That isn't fair to us
You were my best friend through all of that
And maybe you didn't always see
But then I was good at hiding it

I recall times when I tried to open up
When I tried to make you understand
You never really did
And now this distance growing
And the occasional meetings
I am seeing
That we're no longer alike

I wish I could hate you, Oh
It would be easier
But no
That isn't fair to us
You were my best friend through all of that
And maybe you didn't always see
But then I was good at hiding it

Whenever I moved about
It was easy, just blame the army guys
Whenever others got posted away
The same

When that girl told me to go away
I just told myself it was immaturity
That one day she'd appreciate that my intentions were good
But I don't know where to pigeon hole this whole affair

I wish I could hate you, Oh
It would be easier
But no
That isn't fair to us
You were my best friend through all of that
And maybe you didn't always see
But then I was good at hiding it

We just grew up
We just drifted apart
We just lived our lives
We never knew when we became best friends
That this would be the result

I don't know how this effects you
But the loss is there
Even though you're right here
Oh
We just grew up

The End
