    lyrics

    I saw a kid playing in the dirt 
    and I thought “hey kid, it only gets worse from here” 
    I watched as his mother cleaned his face and I thought that was nice 
    It feels like it was only yesterday that i was in that place 

    Magic shows don’t quite feel the same as they once did when I was just that age but I can sleep all the way through the night without waking up to hear my parents fight 
    and I’ll take that tonight 

    I drove past the house that I grew up in 
    And I’m not sure I’m glad I visited back here 
    It looked different than I’d remembered it 
    And it brought back way too many things that I’d prefer to forget 

    Most birthdays don’t quite feel the same as they once did when i lived at that place but I can sleep all the way through the night without waking up to hear my parents fight 
    and I’ll take that tonight
