"Grow Up" as written by Hayley Williams and Taylor York....
I told him and to sick it
Out of town with a dime to my name
Said I'm done with all my fake friends
Self-righteous pawns in a losing game
Got my bedroom right then woke you out
Been a burden since the day I was born
So I cried just little then I dried my eyes
'Cause I'm not a little girl no more

Some of us have to grow up sometimes
And so if I have to I'm gonna leave you behind
Some of us have to grow up sometimes
And so if I have to I'm gonna leave you behind

Certain life is so long as the picket
Something I will never understand
I'm too tired of always being mad at the world
Won't you just admit you don't care
Lady I don't want your pity
So don't feel sorry for me
I’ve got a lover would die for this song to sing
Maybe we're both just living out how I dream

Some of us have to grow up sometimes
And so if I have to I'm gonna leave you behind
Some of us have to grow up sometimes
And so if I have to I'm gonna leave you behind

We get along for the most part
Me and reality, the light in the dark
And we live alone
And two evil worlds
Be in a fantasy
With you and your memories

But we get along
We get along, for the most part!
We get along, yeah, for the most part!
We get along, for the most part!
We get along
We get along
We get along

Some of us have to grow up sometimes
And so if I have to I'm gonna leave you behind (leave you behind)
Some of us have to grow up sometimes
And so if I have to I'm gonna leave you behind (leave you behind)
Some of us have to grow up sometimes
And so if I have to I'm gonna leave you behind (leave you behind)
Some of us have to grow up sometimes
And so if I have to I'm gonna leave you behind

    Song MeaningTo me it sounds like Hayley is trying to move on again like Fast In My Car and being new and starting all over again. Making new goals, making new friends, etc.

    Song Meaning"Got my bedroom right then woke you out / Been a burden since the day I was born"

    Jesus Christ, it's "got my band a light that won't go out / been burning since the day I was born" who came up with these lyrics?

    Also, the part that's supposed to go "And baby, I don't want your pity / So don't feel sad for me / I got a love I would die for and a song to sing / Maybe we're both just living out our dream" is totally directed towards Sherri Dupree. Sherri wrote the song "Sad" about how sorry she feels for Hayley for dating her cheating ex-husband, Chad. Damn.

    General CommentThese lyrics are killing me, They are very wrong.

    Anyway Grow Up is one of my favorite's from the new album Paramore. I think its because I can relate to it so much right now. Im at the point in my life where im letting go of certain negative people/friends in order for me to get on with my life and to well grow up.

    I truly think this is what this song is about. There comes a point in everybodys life where they have to let go of certain people even if they don't want to, but they know its really for the best, for them to move on.

    Also I agree with @afflictionate with the whole
    "And baby, I don't want your pity / So don't feel sad for me / I got a love I would die for and a song to sing / Maybe we're both just living out our dream" being about Sherri Dupree.
    But I think instead of "Baby" it says "Lady" thats what it says in the booklet that comes with the album, and lady does make more sense then baby.

    But yes it makes so much sense because apparently Eisley's song sad is supposed to be about feeling sorry for Hayley, and then Sherri did write that lengthy blog about the whole drama.

    Hopefully this isn't too confusing or too long.

    General CommentAghhh, just looking at the incorrect lyrics really bugs me. :/
    Grow Up is the trio sticking together and not letting anything (or anyone) stand in their way. Leaving the past in the past.
