16 - Dasha

I went from
Princes and pirate ships
To breaking hearts
And I don't remember it
Cause childhood scars
Left me a sour taste

Now I'm 13
I've got anxiety
Girls are mean
I guess the irony's
They wanna be
The people that they hate

I thought we were kids
What the hell happened
His hands on my skin
Not what I imagined
I'm crying to friends
In the girl's bathroom again

Please slow it down
I'm freaking out
I'm growing up
And lost my crown
I don't think I'd be reminiscing
If time stopped back when I was 16

I went from
Curfews and sneaking out
To downtown clubs
Now in a bigger town
And everyone
Feels like a stranger now

Now I'm 22
It's the first time that I said
"I love you"
And I'm scared as hell that you'll say it too
And we'll see it through
Put your knee on the floor and I'll say that I do

I thought we were kids
What the hell happened
My clothes don't fit
I never imagined
A pregnancy test
Would make me cry in the bathroom
At that damn CVS
Down the street from my high school

Please slow it down
I'm freaking out
I'm growing up
And lost my crown
I don't think I'd be reminiscing
If time stopped back when I was 16

I miss my mom
Since I moved out
I promised that
I'd make her proud
I don't think I'd be reminiscing
If time stopped back when I was 16
