lyrics

Who said timelines are one size fits all?
Still I frown over white gowns, new houses, and way back falls
Hard to tell what I'm missing here
Or if I'm chasing others' dreams
All I know is as long as I can, I just want to sing

Am I the mulberry outside the yard?
Wild hands that hold onto the used-to-bes
I'll follow the wind but my roots are still in
Is it wasting time if I'm still growing?

Who said grown-ups don't need to cry a while?
'Cause I miss seeing mom and dad every day
And playing still seems worth it
Wistful for time that already left
But still looking for the rest
All I know is as long as I can, I'll spend all the best with you

Am I the mulberry outside the yard?
Wild hands that hold onto the used-to-bes
I'll follow the wind but my roots are still in
Is it wasting time if I'm still growing?

Lie down lie down in the breeze
We can't forget to slow down
Moments that color these leaves
The seeds we've sown hold us high

You gotta go up
Gotta keep going
No time to get wound up in webs of not knowing

You gotta go up
Gotta keep going
No time to get wound up in webs of not knowing

You gotta go up
Gotta keep going
No time to get wound up in webs of not knowing

I'll follow the wind but my roots are still in
Is it wasting time if I'm still growing?
