  • Lyrics: I am close to Jimmy He cuts through the city He lives just ten away on foot He comes to sit on my front porch in my shady neighborhood We spike our iced teas And listen to CDs Some days before they’ve faded I love the thought of us, so young and mischievous But oh so domesticated There is this pain of growing up A pain of growing up We’ve both got big plans You’d like to join a punk band I’d like someday to go to Spain But still I got no job, no, you still work at The Home Depot Either way it’s hard to save Time is a bully Whose hands can hurt me Taking me and tying knots With prescription prices It’s me verses my vices I’m having trouble getting this to stop But this is the pain of growing up This is the pain of growing up Mom packed your dreams in boxes When you went off to college To earn a small degree When you came back to find them She said never you mind them They’ve long since gone to charity This is the pain of growing up The pain of growing up This is the pain of growing up The pain of growing up
