It's alright to tell me what you think about me
I won't try to argue or hold it against you
I know that you're leaving, you must have your reasons
The season is calling, your pictures are falling down

The steps that I retrace, the sad look on your face
The timing and structure, did you hear he fucked her?
A day late, a buck short, I'm writing the report
On losing and failing, when I move, I'm flailing now

And it's happened once again
I'll turn to a friend
Someone that understands
Sees through the master plan
But everybody's gone
And I've been here for too long
To face this on my own
Well, I guess this is growing up
Well, I guess this is growing up

And maybe I'll see you at a movie sneak preview
You'll show up and walk by on the arm of that guy
And I'll smile and you'll wave, we'll pretend it's okay
The charade, it won't last, when he's gone I won't come back

And it'll happen once again
You'll turn to a friend
Someone that understands
And sees through the master plan
But everybody's gone
And you've been there for too long
To face this on your own
Well, I guess this is growing up

Well, I guess this is growing up
Well, I guess this is growing up
Well, I guess this is growing up
Well, I guess this is growing up
Well, I guess this is growing up

    General Commentthis song is simply about being a guy, and getting dumped by your girl. The first verse is about how the guy isn't judging her for breaking up with him. He's sort of accepting it. The 2nd verse is about the guy going back in his mind and wondering where the relationship went wrong. His mind is kind of a mess. The chorus is all about the guy turning to his friends for support, to help him get through the aftermath of the breakup. He sort of realizes that he has to get past the breakup, and sort of take it as another experience, hence, "well I guess this is growing up." Finally, the 3rd verse is about how the guy sees his ex with another guy. He has a little bit of animosity towards her, but he doesn't really show it. He's pretty much over her, so when she decides she wants him back, he won't want to. This song is awesome, it means a lot more to me now, since I just got dumped, and the lyrics basically emulate everything I'm feeling right now.
