Every time I think of growing up I find out that I just slipped back
I got it all wrong you know I
Feel younger than I did when I was younger on a backwards track

I thought by now I could have figured it all out instead I'm further back
Feels kinda stupid but I
Feel sixteen in my head but I guess it's only five years back

But I won't see the signs
It took so long but you were always on my mind
Yeah

For all the times I've tried to take a little time out for myself
I'm just growing all alone again
But I find in my mind that I'm not

Time is running out and I just want to say I'm sorry now
Before I'm all alone again
And I'm broken and cold
The ageing superhero in me is tired
Because he's lived too fast for too long
And he still longs to be inspired

I feel old, feel broke feel cold and I can't fight back
It sounds so stupid I
But it's gone, this train won't run
Guess it must be the track

But I won't see the signs
It took so long but you were always on my mind
Yeah

For all the times I've tried to take a little time out for myself
I'm just growing all alone again
But I find in my mind that I'm not

Time is running out and I just want to say I'm sorry now
Before I'm all alone again
And I'm broken and cold

But I won't see the signs
It took so long but you were always on my mind
Yeah

For all the times I've tried to take a little time out for myself
I'm just growing all alone again
But I find in my mind that I'm not

Time is running out and I just want to say I'm sorry now
Before I'm all alone again
And I'm broken and cold
The ageing superhero in me is tired
Because he's lived too fast for too long
And he still longs to be inspired
