Grown-up

‘Cause I’m aware that I’m alone.
‘Cause I know, inside, I’ll never love again.
‘Cause I’m no longer naïve or dumb.
‘Cause you can’t get back your innocence.

‘Cause happiness is something
I look and long for, but don’t possess.
‘Cause I no longer believe what was true
to me back then.
‘Cause I don’t live no more, I sometimes dream.
And that wretched image in the mirror
can’t fool me.

‘Cause I don’t use my freedom,
and I never do what I want.
It’s been long since I’ve been playing-
I don’t trust anyone.

‘Cause I don’t write no more
and I can’t sleep.
‘Cause there’s no sense to time
that pleases me.

I used to be one jolly person,
now a poor soul lives in here.
All I do is watch the hours pass
for no one wants to be with me.

‘Cause I don’t look at the sky and wonder
¿what will be? no longer.
‘Cause they say I’m lonely and
that is
how I’ll end up.
‘Cause I’m sitting here, waiting only…
Waiting for all
of it
to pass me by.
