"Linus" as written by and Matthew Kirk Handley....
It's a common misconception that
A boy can't keep his heart in tact
The biggest thrill could start and stall in a week

It's an urban myth when girls come clean
They reveal themselves in a slow striptease
In vintage stores and grey steel ford bucket seats

I'll grow up this year,
I'll grow up this year you'll see
I'll throw off my Linus blanket
and let someone close to me

When a whispered word could scream protest
And the worst kept secret is what you do best
An insulated heart is harder to steal
I could contemplate each and every step
From the cautious drink to a drunkard's bed
You found it's too late just when you worked it out

I'll grow up this year,
I'll grow up this year you'll see
I'll throw off my Linus blanket then decide

I like sleeping against the wall
Hearing you come home well after four
Wash the circles from 'round your eyes
they're faithful now

I'll grow up this year you'll see
