I didn't know, I didn't know, I didn't know how to talk
So I sang and I banged on the mattress for the lonliness to stop
Light came in, the monsters fled for the dark
And left me sleeping to the beat of a loving heart

I didn't know, I didn't know, I didn't know how to walk
So I crawled on the floor in my onsie like a breathing mop
Dad came in, picked me up from the ground
Took me in his arms, showed me all of the town

I'm not scared to grow up
But i am afraid to die
I'm gonna take my time
I'm gonna take my time
I'm gonna take my time
I'm gonna take my time

I didn't know, I didn't know, I didn't know how to read
I liked the scenes in the pictures, the words didn't matter to me
Teacher said, “Son, you've gotta know what they mean
Read the writing on the wall, learn you A B C’s.”

I didn't know, I didn't know, I didn't know how to rock
So I dropped out of school, spent my time with Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
When the record was finished, the player kept running
My finger tips grew tough, lips hum-humming

I'm not scared to grow up
But i am afraid to die
I'm gonna take my time
I'm gonna take my time
I'm gonna take my time
I'm gonna take my time

I didn't know, I didn't know, I didn't know how to die
So i pulled a sheet over my head, held my breath and closed my eyes
