"Grew Up Fast" as written by and Tom Petty....
We grew up fast
And no one seemed to notice
We grew up fast
And we grew up alone

Mom and Dad
Were never what we wanted
We grew up fast
And we grew up alone
We grew up along

Well you know who I am
So don't treat me like I'm someone else
Well you know what I am
So don't treat me like I'm someone else
You never act like that with no one else

We grew up fast
When lies were just a fact of life
We grew up mad
'Cause we never had a home
We faced the past
And forgave the revolution
We grew up smashed
And we grew up alone
We grew up alone

Hey my brother
I got no fight with you
I just can't lie down

Hey my brother
I got no fight with you
I just can't lie down
No, I just can't ride down
I just can't ride down

Well you know who I am
So don't treat me like I'm someone else
Well you know what I am
So don't act like I'm something else
Well you know who I am
So don't treat me like I'm someone else
You know where I am
So don't act like I'm somewhere else

You never talk like that to no one else
You never scream like that for no one else
You never suck like that for no one else

    General CommentNo comments? WTF? ANYONE listen to She's the One? This song is amazing on an amazing album.

    Pretty self explanatory song except I don't know exactly what this line means,

    "Hey my brother, I got no fight with you, I just can't ride down. "

    General CommentYou know I cant be sure, but I think the song is about a girl cheating on him with one of his friends.

    The line: "Hey my brother, I got no fight with you, I just can't ride down. "

    Indicates that hey, I get it, you slept with her, but I'm not mad at you, this is about her and I can't get it out of my head (ride it down).

    I feel the song is about a former girlfriend no longer speaking to him, treating him differently. But I think that's pretty obvious.

    As for She's The One, amazing album. How could you not love it.
