You turn off the light, kiss me good night
And mother, I know that I'm going to be alright
I just can't wait to grow up
Find my own life, be a good wife

And a smart one, I'm sure
I never took us for granted and I always knew
You and I are special
But I never knew how much I'd miss you

So much has changed and been rearranged
And I see that I've lost
What made me so young and incredibly strong
And never ever wrong

You were always there
Because you're always everywhere
I used to cry for no reason
And that's still the same

Except that I had adolescence to blame
But not now
Now I feel sad because I don't know what's true
And I miss thinking I could be just like you.

So much has changed and been rearranged
And I see that I've lost
What made me so young and incredibly strong
And never ever wrong

So much has changed and been rearranged
And I see that I've lost
What made me so sure that I could endure
How hard it is to lose and live again

And never understand
You are always everywhere
You're always there
You turn off the light, and kiss me goodnight

And mother, I know that I'm going to be alright

    i love this part so bad: 'I used to cry for no reason And that's still the same Except that I had adolescence to blame But not now Now I feel sad cause I don't know what’s true And I miss thinking that I could be just like you.'

Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
