"1996" as written by Johan Carlsson and Ella Henderson....
Ten past three in the afternoon
In nineteen ninety-six an eight pound baby arrived
That was me
I don't know why I was brought to life
But I swear that I'm the luckiest girl alive to be
Part of this family
And now I miss the times when you'd hold my hand
When I'm crossing the road
You'd never let me fall
Until it was time for you to let me go

And who knows when you're old and grey
Who you're gonna grow up to be
But every day I love you more
You did it all for me

I met my best friend by the age of three
And she grew up watching episodes of Lizzy McGuire with me
On T.V.
Oh, we used to share our secrets
Didn't care about what we would say
But when it got embarrassing, I'd let you in

And now I want to go back to when
We dressed up and we put on a magic show
And I bossed you around, but you never frowned
Never wanted to go home

And who knows when we're old and grey
Who we're gonna grow up to be
But every day I love you more
You did it all for me

I won't let these moments fade away
It's 'cause of you I'm who I am today
Little miss from ninety-six

And how I miss the times when you'd hold my hand
When I'm crossing the road
You'd never let me fall until
It was time for you to let me go

And who knows when you're old and grey
Who you're gonna grow up to be
But every day I love you more
You did it all for me

And every day I love you more
You did it all for me

    My InterpretationIt's about the year of her birth, her family, and her friends.
